New Times (L.A.) - Robert Wilonsky
Perfectly acceptable, deliriously charming...a goofy Bmovie dolled up like a square-jawed A-list blockbuster.
63
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Burton's made a film that's respectful to the original, and respectable in itself, but that's not enough. Ten years from now, it will be the 1968 version that people are still renting.

New York Daily News - Jack Mathews
As a story, Burton's Planet of the Apes is more of a comic-book creation than either of his "Batman" movies.
50
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
With the exception of a battle scene with apes on all fours charging the humans, the film is monumentally silly.
50
TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
This film is pure, empty (if gorgeous) spectacle, and the decision to loose the tongues of the ape planet's humans (they were mute in the original) undermines the contrast that lies at the heart of the story's power.
