The review of this Movie prepared by Joe

Follow up to Planet Of The Apes, finds another astronaut (Franciscus) searching for previous astronaut crew. Not as inspiring as original but still a good effort. Would've been nice if Charlton Heston could've been in more of the movie. Followed by Escape From The Planet Of The Apes.
