All 9 Planet of the Apes Movies, Ranked From Worst to Best

If you are an action sci-fi watcher then I think this movie franchise is for you. With a total 9 movies including original and reboot, this movie franchise is one of the best movie franchise of all time. Today we are going to check out all 9 Planet of the Apes movies ranked in the order: from worst to best.

 

9. Planet of The Apes (2001)

One of the ambitious mistake from director Tim Burton which somehow managed more than a quarter Billion in profit. When an Airforce astronaut crash lands on a mysterious planet he inadvertently inspires a revolution between primitive humans and their talking Ape masters. A baby-faced Marly Mark Wahlberg leads the groups as best he can, but he’s drastically out of his depth in this big budget adventure. Tim Roth portrays a sinister chimpanzee military villain who spends most of his time shouting angrily or jumping around the set like some amped-up parkour artist. Every location is draped in shadows and cluttered with decoration of gothic inspiration. Planet of the Apes is an insult to its namesake and a wholly pointless remake.

 

8. Battle For The Planet of The Apes (1973)

Ten years after the uprising saw in “Conquest”, ape leader Ceaser wants both species to live in peace, but militant interest on both sides threaten the stability. When the “Apes” franchise began just six short years earlier, no one could have guessed the timed little scientist with a British accent would go on to be the figurehead of the entire franchise and yet that’s exactly the mantle, Roddy McDowell took up. He returns here for his fourth and last appearance as the pragmatic Caeser. By this point, he’s got the monkey mannerisms locked in, but the real benefits of his continued presence are just having a familiar face to root for, as almost all other character have been swapped at with analogs or replacement.

 

7. Conquest of The Planet of The Apes (1972)

In a futuristic world where humanity has embraced ape-slavery following the extinction of all cats and dogs. Caeser, the talking ape child of two traveling chimps, surfaces after twenty years of hiding to lead a revolution against man. Roddy McDowell returns to the franchise in his third picture to portray his own offspring, now stuck in a world dominated by humans who are unaware of his true intelligence. Ricardo Montaballon returns as well in a much larger role; now functioning as Caeser’s defacto father figure. He brings much-needed compassion to the film. Don Murray, Natalie Trundy, and Han Rhodes round out the primary cast a stem governor, an ape love interest and a sympathetic ally respectively.

 

6. Beneath of The Planet of The Apes (1970)

James Franciscus the sole survivor of an interplanetary rescue mission who searches for the only survivor of a previous expedition. But instead, he discovers a planet of talking apes and an underground city of telepathic humans who worship an atomic bomb. Realizing he’s on a planet dominated by intelligent apes, sadly much of the first hour of the movie is just an accelerated retread of the first film. There is a crash landing our hero is captured by apes and then escapes with Zira’s help. It isn’t until Franciscus finds himself in a familiar New York subway station that things get interesting. Completionists will enjoy exploring more of the titular world, but casual viewers would be best served to skip over it entirely.
