Being a big fan of Rod Serling and his Twilight Zone series I could see the Serling influence in the screenplay which he co-wrote; certainly the surprise ending is truly Twilight Zonish in nature not to mention the satirical references to prevailing social issues of the time which is another Zone trademark. This is a great film but the many follow-up sequels are not and they fall far short of the brilliance that this the original film achieves.
No sci-fi film buff should be without this film in their video library and this blu-ray release is currently the best version of the film that is out there. Get this but ignore the sequels.
not star wars, not alien, not star trek, not the new apes films and more.
this is the keystone MAJOR MOTION PICTURE that started all the big budget sci fi films of all time.
and it was the first to have mego action figures of a film.
The colors are faded and not dynamic in the least and, to be honest, it looks less than I would expect from a standard DVD release.
To make matters worse, I know there are loads of features and additional Planet of the Apes material out there and this disc has none of it save for some decent commentary from some of the stars.
Wait until a better treatment comes out.
