|A rescue party is sent out to retrieve astronaut Taylor, but fares little better. Instead encountering apes and intelligent human survivors busy worshipping The Bomb.
Oddball sequel to the Charlton Heston monkey-fest, with no Roddy McDowall and Heston only popping up at the finale. Inferior to Planet of the Apes but enjoyable sci-fi social satire. The loonies worshipping the Alpha-Omega bomb are particularly cherishable.
The ending appeared sequel-proof - or so we thought!
