    I know this is a subjective question and open to all kinds of debate, but is Planet of the Apes any good?

    I feel the need to buy another DVD and this one kind of appeals, particularly as it is in DTS!

    Play 247 have it for £16.99, anybody managed to get it cheaper than this?

    Cheers

    In a nutshell. It's a total pile of ****e, the original is far better. I wouldn't waste my money on it if I were you.

    Make that 2 thumbs down.
    I found it very....very....grim.

    Apparently the 2 disc set is a real peach, but with a film that bad (compared to the original) why waste the money?
    Same with the boxed set of the original films - there was, and is, only ONE good Planet Of The Apes movie, everything that followed it was dreadful.

    Course, it's only my opinion

    As I said earlier it's reviewed on my site..... but I have to say I didn't review it ;) I actually saw it at the cinema and thought it was terrible - Marky Mark's acting was awful in places, the script was laughable and the whole thing was disrespectful to the superb original. Again, this is only my opinion but I'm finding it hard to find anyone who actually enjoyed it.....
