Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Peppered with some sharp, even amusing dialogue, the story temporarily shelves the heavy allegory and slips into good, slam-bang suspense. But it doesn't last.

I think I've certainly warmed up to this over time, it's a lot more intelligent than it gets credit for. Sure, on the surface it's just another chance for Charlton Heston to show off his crazy gun collection and laugh maniacally for no reason. However, there's really something interesting about evolution going on and resistance to change. Some of the visuals really do hold up, even today, mainly because they don't try to be overly ambitious. Some of the city shots really are pretty shocking.

The only good thing about this movie was that it begat the Misfits song Where Eagles Dare.
