The Planet of the Apes

Top-notch science fiction picture about a group of astronauts on an expedition to a far off planet and when they arrive there, they discover the oddest thing: apes are the intelligent beings who rule over all other animals and men are stupid, sickly and violent beasts. Truly a brilliant film with great camera work and wonderful direction. A great performance in a role hailed to be one of Charlton Heston's best. Great costumes and a great set. Everybody should see this one; it'll make you think about humanity! Followed by 4 sequels; the next one is Beneath the Planet of the Apes.
