Why watch this film?

Conquest of the Planet of the Apes is the fourth installment of the saga in its original continuity. Set in the (then) near future of the 1990s, the film portrays a society in which apes have been enslaved by humanity, until one more evolved than the rest instigates a revolution that represents the fall of the human race. In addition to closing the line of events leading to the story of the original, this film also shares several narrative elements with what would be its reboot: here we meet Caesar, played by Roddy McDowall, and later by Andy Serkis in the new movies.
