Wonderful movie! The original series is always the BEST!! I like, of course, the first movie better. Always a treat to watch, though.

"Sorry guys (the three other reviews) you don't know what you're talking about. I'm assuming that you three are the types who LOVED the new planet of the apes compared to Heston's real Planet of the Apes right? Beneath is a damn good film, period. I suppose you could give it 4.5 stars because it isn't as good as Part I, but COME ON! Beneath is a good film!! If you like Planet of the Apes, I can not see how you won't enjoy this, the end is almost as good as the original one! OK, enough. If you like Apes, watch this, if not, skip it."
Nihilistic Weirdness is surprisingly subversive.

"*** This comment may contain spoilers ***

The first film is still awesome; But the 2nd one was always my favorite. It has strange desert locations, odd melted cityscapes, telepathic mutants who worship a "doomsday bomb";It has more of Linda Harrison of the fabled fur bikini; It has both Chuck Heston and James Franciscus in loincloths! It has naked apes in steam-baths! I was always shocked by the nihilistic and super-violent ending when I saw this film as a child and watching it again i am surprised to find it still rather abrupt and shocking--the climax is a stunner. The director, Ted Post, also directed the 2nd of the Dirty Harry films and he shows a Peckinpah-like ability to "put the sting back in Death".

What is amusing today is watching the film conclude, as it does, with James Franciscus pinned to a wall with bullet holes stitched across his chest and forehead and Chuck Heston clutching his bloody fingers to the "button" thus leading to the complete destruction of the ENTIRE PLANET...and then an old MPAA rating pops up immediately...telling you you have just witnessed a G-Rated film! The times-they-are-a-changing!

"I hate to tell my age but I saw this in the 70's when it was under
rereleased in the "GO APE" festival. And as with the original this
sequel gets better with each viewing Also for a low budget film it
still had great set designs & the cast which includes most of it's
star players from the first on a minus note they lost McDowell's
"Cornelius" but on the plus side you get James Gregory as "General
Ursus" who adds a great hammyness and for my money probably one of
more memorable characters in the series. Most follow ups rarely do
justice when matched up to thier precessor but I feel that the film
did answer the question of what was beyond the "forbidden zone"
and you can't beat that final solution ending voiced by the one
and only Paul Frees."
