  • movie Description
  • Escape From the Planet of the Apes is the second sequel in the popular science fiction franchise. Three apes flee the genocide on their planet in their time in Taylor from the first film's spaceship and land in California. The three apes meet with Americans who do not want to believe they can speak but are fascinated and under the charm of the extraordinary thing it represents. But the funny atmosphere turns sour very fast because the men who interrogate them, namely the CIA, believe them and see the future in their tale, a future of total reversal of the world order, of the natural order, the apes at the top and human beings having regressed to the bottom. Upon the apes' escape, they witness the destruction of the earth due to a weapon of warfare created by humans and used by apes. This film provides a thematic bridge in the movie series, but also stands on its own.moreless
