The DVD Collection for Apes fans!,
This review is from: Planet of the Apes - The Evolution (DVD)
The only Planet of the Apes movie I had seen prior to purchasing this set was the first one, and I really had never watched that movie start to finish either. Let me say that all five of the apes movies are beatifully remastered on dvd. All have excellent picture and sound quality, and along with a sixth behind the scenes disk, it makes this the ultimate Planet of the Apes collection, and would be a great addition to anyones dvd collection. After finally seeing and enjoying all five films I have really fallen in love with this series, and now can't wait to see Tim Burtons remake in the near future.
What I really liked about this set was the inclusion of the sixth disc which explains the series which was made before I was born. I was shocked to learn at how low the budgets for each successive movies became, and how they did it for such a small amount. All the sets were magnificent, and with todays world of cgi, its nice to see how older films were made back in the day.
I totally recommend anyone purchasing this dvd set. Sure its a fair bit expensive, but its all five movies plus a bonus disc, so overall its quite reasonable.
