Hokey and slapdash.

This first sequel to Planet of the Apes isn't bad, but already shows the way the original conception was to degenerate into routine comic strip adventure.

It may be more difficult for a post-Simpsons / Futurama audience to take seriously, but those with the patience to sit through a slow first half will be rewarded with another gutsy ending.

Where Planet of the Apes was able to tie the tensions of the 1960s to a greater look at the human condition, Beneath suffers from schizophrenia where it wants to say something, but lacks the cleverness, timing, and consistency to do so.
