Don Taylor directs Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter and Bradford Dillman in this sci-fi sequel where a few survivors of the future ape apocalypse crashland in modern day America.
A very dry film where most of the scenes are the talking apes being examined and interrogated in government facilities. There is some amusing satire when they briefly become media sensations. The bleak fugitive finale fulfils the adventure requirements barely. Talky but not without something to say. God only knows what seventies kids, excited to see more simian dystopian action, made of it? Imagine a Fast & Furious sequel which was mainly the family renewing their driving licences and insurance quotes.
