    With rare exception, remakes fall short of the originals. This is the case with Planet of the Apes. The original had to rely on story and acting over special effects (though the monkey makeup is very good for 1968). Sadly, all POTA movies and TV shows that followed, including the remake and it's sequels, have not lived up to the standard set by the original, but are still worth watching.

    I will have to say, I can't "blame" the film, but rather would have to say it was my husband who didn't read the packaging well, however this wasn't the series of films we "thought" we were purchasing. Speaking for the set itself, my husband and I (ages 35 & 36) are having a hard time really getting into these older versions. I have been told this is where the real story comes from....so we will continue to try.

    I have loved this series ever since I was a young boy who saw the original movie on TV. When the TV series came out, I was glued to the set for every episode, and then the cartoon series became a part of my regular Saturday morning viewing. This is one of the few movie franchises that I loved growing up that has not lost any of its charm with me now as an adult.

    I actually purchased this for my grandson for his birthday. He just turned 14. He is so used to computer generated movie characters so I had to explain to him that these movies were made in the late 60's & early 70's so the characters were ACTUAL ACTORS in monkey suits and NOT like AVATAR characters. He likes these movies as much as I do.

    My wife is a fan of the two recently released films and wanted to see the original ones to see if the new ones were holding true to the story line. The first two movies in the series were very good. The third was average. The last two were difficult to finish. Guess it was what was being produced at the time.

    This review will just be about the new packaging for this set. As far as I can tell, the content of the discs are identical to previous releases. The main reason to get this set, assuming you enjoy the movies, is that the packaging is about a third of the size of the previous release.

    Real nice to have the legacy collection. Didn't realize that the first movie came out in 1967. That was a wake up call that I didn't need to be reminded of. Even my grandson thought they were pretty neat. A must have for movie collectors.

    I really enjoyed these movies as a kid. I had the toys ect too. Sure they are a little dated and the visual effects a little weak. I saw the same explosion several times from different angles. Still very compelling premise and overall I liked them all.

    I thought overall the collection was great and feel it is a must if you are a true planet aper,however, as the series progressed my ratings of each movie lowered significantly.Of course it's hard to top Charlton Heston as George Taylor.

    Always fun to watch the original before going to see the remake. It was interesting to compare the technology especially with regard to the apes speaking.....boy have we come a long way since the original. The CGI is amazing in the new version.

    While the package arrived a bit beat-up, this was exactly as advertised--all five original films, along with a bonus documentary. GREAT price for the content!

    This was a great movie, Planet of the apes. It brings all 5 original movies. The cast was great and the special effect was cutting edge for its time. I have seen these movies when I was younger and they still are awesome today.

    This was a great set. This is just an awesome film series to own. You can give this to someone who only knows of the newer movies and you can let them see how this series got it's start.

    I LOVE the original Planet of the Apes series, and at this price it was a no-brainer buying it. It's a great collection to have, and you won't regret buying it. $14.99 for all the movies is a great bargain.

    This is an entertaining movie series. The acting is good, and the visual effects are good for when it was made. The twist it takes at the end of the first movie and then in the third are good.

    Great Films in Great Package

    This is a great collection for those wanting to get all of these great films in one package. The extras start off well with the first film and then quickly fall off for the rest, but overall this is a great value.

    This collection is a must have for any sci-fi movie collection. Sure, the costumes and effects are dated and somewhat cheezy. That only adds to the movies - like the original King Kong.
