Review: Planet of the Apes (1968)
1. A once great story has lost its luster over time, like a monkey's fur fading in the sun.
2. A once great story has faded over time, Heston's outbursts now seem awkward as he overacts in the Shatnerian tradition.
3. This once great ape has devolved over time into a strange, stilted creature; the film's brave concept frequently gets lost amidst the flying fur.
4. Charlton Heston, the film's iconic protagonist, hasn't aged well into the next generation; his iconic lines seem more hackneyed or silly than dramatic.
(hmm.. tough to condense this one)
