Horrifyingly bad...
The plot seems to revolve around the story of disjointed characters that go nowhere and do nothing save getting in deep trouble every 30 seconds whereupon they escape to go about getting into trouble. Plus...how does freezing someone send them into a past that never existed? Yeah...really...bad...

Actually this film aint too bad I must say compared to other movies shown on the show. The Ape costumes and effecs are really watchable, but the story has no merit.

However if your a fan of the Planet of the Apes movies then this will be for you.

A family trying to get cryongenically frozen gets sent back in time in the future when it was ruled by apes. Like I said the makeup ape stuff is good, I was scared when I watched it, its definitely in some cases better than that Tim Burton garbage remake but its not a classic.

The family escapes the apes and makes friends with some of the simians out there before making plans to go back into time. Not bad , Joel Hodgson , though and the robots do have their way
with this one.

Dubbed talking apes in military uniforms, and lots of them. Now you don't see that every day. Japanese apes too, that can barely move their mouths when they talk. Hilarious. I love it.

The apes alone make the film extremely fun to watch. Just like a Godzilla movie. There's a particularly tall ape with catfish whiskers that's the funniest one of them all. Gosh he's ugly. Everyone calls him, "Your Excellency," and he rides around in a beat-up old car. Ha ha.

This movie was originally a TV series, and here it's repackaged and squeezed into a few hours, so the plot (what there is of it) is quite brisk. Still, its put together way better than the Fugitive Alien movie. We see a Japanese woman and two kids fiddling around in a lab and getting caught in some cryogenic chambers. They wake up from their frozen state thousands of years later, to a time when Japanese apes have taken over, and still live in houses walled with paper. The woman and kids try escaping from the hostile militant apes and meet another human fellow named Godo. This bunch stumbles into some universal computer area (left out of the MST3K Season 3 version, unfortunately) and weird stuff happens. The woman and kids go back to their original time where doctors offer lame explanations as to what made the time travel possible. Godo himself ends up stranded in a desert somewhere. Ha ha.

This movie is great with or without the MST3K crew, but I was saddened that MST3K had to cut some good stuff out. If you happen to see this tape in a store for cheap, check it out for a good laugh.
