    Planet of the Apes is a sci-fi classic that provides a thought provoking adventure that terrifies the imagination. Co-written by Rod Serling (creator of The Twilight Zone), the story follows a group of astronauts that crash land on a strange planet in deep space that is ruled by apes. Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, and Kim Hunter lead the cast and give strong performances. The set designs and costumes are fascinating, and add a lot of rich texture to the film. Additionally, the ape makeup effects are amazing and still holdup. But it's the brilliant storytelling, full of mystery and intrigue, which makes this film so compelling. Planet of the Apes is smart and suspenseful, and delivers one of the most powerful and iconic endings in film history.moreless
