A pitch perfect science fiction film, that still conveys sharp social commentary...

It gives you a lot to think about.

Definitely a genre defining movie...almost fifty years old, and still holds up well...makeup was breath-taking in its time, but looks just a little off by today's standards. What makes this such a great movie is the acting, the script, and the directing...the action sequences use actual stunt men (imagine that!?), and are tightly directed and edited...script by Rod Serling...how can you miss with talent like that?

The original and still the best in my opinion.

A bad movie that doesn't capture Tim Burton's sense of cinematography. The original one is way better!

Dated but excellent.

It is because the cover and record information you see is for the original movie and the actual blue-Ray disc that you receive. Which sucks as I have seen the original many times. I was looking forward to seeing the new version and how they treated it.

Not sure why so many of the comments here are actually for the much better 1968 Charlton Heston movie. This version could have been a better movie than it turned out, I was highly disappointed. The movie almost ended on a high point and then it continued for a very odd and dumb ending.

This original film is much better than the 2001 film. This film has emotional impact. While Heston's drama goes over-the-top, Wahlberg's drama is underwhelming. Having the humans mute makes (as in the original) makes more sense.

I liked the original film better. The apes had better lines (and better acting) than the humans. Making humans mute made more sense. The original had more emotional impact. The ending of this film made no sense at all.

George Taylor: Imagine me needing someone. Back on Earth I never did. Oh, there were women. Lots of women. Lots of love-making but no love. You see, that was the kind of world we'd made. So I left, because there was no one to hold me there.
