Conquest Of The Planet Of The Apes (1972)

Now this is yet another sequel, but this time to Escape From Planet Of Apes (1971), making this the fourth film in the series.

It starts off in 1983, a couple of years after the last movie and a disease has killed all of the world's cats and dogs, so now the humans have no pets. They decided to replace them with monkeys and apes, but as time passes, the apes begin to learn and adapt to the humans and then the humans make them into their slaves and by 1991, the US is working on ape slave labour.

Meanwhile, Armando(Ricardo Montalban), who kept baby Milo safe, has Milo, now called Caesar(Roddy McDowell) all grown up and safely working in the circus. One day they leave and start giving away flyers at a city so people will come and watch the circus. During that trip, Caesar notices how apes are being used  as slaves and he doesn't like it at all! But he's not supposed to talk because if he does, they will find out that he is the son of the apes that came from the future 20 years ago and could endanger the the human race!

Later on, Caesar sees a couple of policemen beating on a gorilla and he couldn't keep his mouth shut and shouts out "Lousy Human Bastards!" This catches the attention of the people around there and start accusing Caesar of speaking, but Armando says he said it. While the gorilla caught the attention of the policemen, Armando walks away with Caesar, telling him that he has to lose the clothes and mix in with the other apes while he fixes this situation, or at least he tries.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now this movie has to be my favorite of all of them! It was really entertaining seeing Caesar communicating with the other apes and leading them to revolt against the humans!


One more movie left in the series! I can't wait to see the ending of the series!

  7. Wait, wait... the world was supposed to end in 1991?

    But in Terminator 2, it was 1997...

    Y2K said 2000...

    And now, the world is supposed to end tomorrow...

    Crap, I guess I need to throw yet another end of the world party.
