1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing.
You would think that this boxed set could have been a POTA fan's dream, but whoever put it together failed to do the series justice. There is very little in the way of extra features--the one bonus disc is merely a scaled-down version of a two disc "Behind the Planet of the Apes" set that is available to purchase separately.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT STARTER SET !, May 29 2006

Now 20th Century Fox in an effort to gouge the fans some more have released "The Planet of the Apes" ultimate collection with deluxe Ape head packaging consisting of all the theatrical movies, TV series, animated series and Tim Burtons version. After considering the cost of the new ultimate collection the Evolution set is definitely a great value for any "Planet of the Apes" fan and a great place to start.

They used to have "Planet of the Apes" week on channel 7 out of Detroit and like any other kid I ran home from school everyday to watch them. I absolutely love the "Planet of the Apes" Evolution boxed set. You get all five "Planet of the Apes" movies plus a sixth bonus disc containing all the wonderful special features. It's all here except the superior picture and 5.1 digitally remastered sound found in the new Legacy box set.

The picture and sound are a definite improvement over any of the television broadcasts but they still don't compare to the Legacy set. I don't understand why 20th Century Fox Studios didn't take the time to remaster all the movies at the same time when they had the chance.

20th Century Fox have always had the ability to remaster these films, because the Legacy set is proof of what can be done. How many times can a studio release the same titles over and over and not make any improvements in picture & sound quality? If the ultimate picture and 5.1 sound are what you're after then I suggest holding out and purchasing the legacy set. I hope this review was helpful.

Films Included:

- Planet of the Apes (1968) - NASA astronaut (Charlton Heston) is stranded on a planet where apes dominate humans.

- Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970) - continues the original film pitting militant apes against mutant humans dwelling in the subterranean ruins of New York City.

- Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971) - Cornelius and Zira travel backward in time restoring the dominance of the apes once again.

- Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972) - Roddy MCDowall plays Caesar, the son of Cornelius, leading an ape revolution against the humans.

- Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973) - Roddy McDowall as Caesar attempts to defeat the gorillas and human mutants to establish the hierarchy introduced in the original film. This was the final film in the series.

You would think that this boxed set could have been a POTA fan's dream, but whoever put it together failed to do the series justice. There is very little in the way of extra features--the one bonus disc is merely a scaled-down version of a two disc "Behind the Planet of the Apes" set that is available to purchase separately. (The bonus disc includes a great documentary originally presented on AMC but it is not even an original production for this set.) Worst of all, the disc of the final movie is an edited version of the original commercial release, deleting all reference to the doomsday bomb that ties the human community in the fifth movie to the one found in the second movie. Of course, none of the sequels do justice to the original so some could argue that this is no big loss. But the only person that could possibly want the entire series would be a true fan, who wouldn't want even the corniest material cut out. So the producers of this boxed set have ruined it for the only market that might get some satisfaction out of it. This patent lack of respect for their own customers makes this a good reason to avoid wasting money on the set, especially since the original movie and the documentary (the only things probably worth owning anyway) are both available for separate purchase on DVD.

Shipped directly from Amazon, and I'm happy with the purchase. I wish that the dvd's were not individually contained in separate cases, other then that it is a very good series and i'm pleased with my purchase.

I've been a fan of the series since a little boy...having it offerred on Bluray is just a major bonus in my book especially as the movies were filmed in Widescreen format, which is perfect for todays flatscreens... the quality is excellent, no flaws, some special features, I just HAD to watch them back to back 1 a night, lol, till done!! highly recommend this bluray edition if your a fan!

Greatest sci fi movie series in my opinion. Packaging is nice and the price is amazing. Like all older films on blu ray some scenes are pretty grainy but it doesn't take away from the film at all it just has a classic feel.
