Love it? Hate it? What was your reaction? I'm interested because my friend and I completely disagree on this film. The ending ruined it for me, he loved every bit of it.

The ending was terrible (and stupid). They should have just stuck with the ending from the original. Of the 7 or 8 movies that I have seen this summer, Planet of the Apes is easily the worst. I won't mention the actual ending of the movie since there may be people who want to see it but have not gotten the chance yet. Two thumbs down.

In the new Planet of the Apes, you are not entirely sure if Planet of the Apes was Earth or not. At the end of the movie, Mark Walberg gets in a time travel machine and flys back to his home planet (Earth) but when he gets back, he sees that the Lincoln Memorial has been replaced with a memorial to an ape. He is arrested soon afterwards by a bunch of ape cops. I don't think that he was supposed to be on Earth for the majority of the movie but it was too vague too really tell.
