its great to see the difference betweeen the original planet of the apes movies to the modern ones. the original films as with the tv series was way ahead of it time with basic special effects and the late great roddy mc dowell as galen in the series and various other names like cornelious in the movies,the new one is fantastic although i think a remake of battle for planet of the apes.this is a dvd worth getting especially if you are a fan of planet of the apes.
