As the astronauts find water, they take off their clothes, as they jump into the water, they are naked but you mostly just see their butts (backside).


Towards the end of the movie, Taylor’s clothing is removed and you can see his backside (butt) naked.


This movie was released pre-PG-13, but would have pushed the PG limit due to some people being offended by nude buttocks.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


In 2009, the irony of transposition thinking, criticizing the evil deeds of human society and expressing concern about the future of mankind was popularized, including the ninth district with full salt flavor, the moon with strong low-cost humanistic flavor, and avatar with a tsunami sweeping the world. In fact, in terms of profundity and thoroughness, these films have long been predecessors. The “ape planet” series from 1968 to 1973 depicts the fateful self destruction fate of human society in a more ironic way, which can be called a classic anti Utopian science fiction film full of reflection.

When it comes to planet of the apes, people think more of Tim Burton’s unsuccessful remake. The strange old man made the film bring his own style, but lost the original irony of the film. In 1968, the first “planet of the apes” was released. A human spaceship came to the earth 2000 years later because of an accident. The protagonist Taylor and his two companions were surprised to find that at this time, the apes have become the masters of the earth and entered the era of cold weapons, while human civilization has returned to the prehistoric level and is only the object of hunting by apes. The film has created two ironic effects. The first is the reversal of human status. From ruling the earth to becoming a low-level animal wandering among the forest plains like apes in those days, they have lost their language ability, and their social form is just like that of apes in those days. In this regard, the most ironic scene is that when Taylor and others were arrested, they soon became the samples of biological experiments in the ape scientific community. The cruel in vivo experiments remind people of what we have done to animals today. What is more frightening is that they include relatively mild scientists in the ape society, such as ZLA, who later gave Taylor great help, The woman ape is kind-hearted, but when she regards human beings as low creatures as we treat cattle and sheep today, she also takes cruel treatment for granted, just as we don’t feel guilty about stepping on an ant.

Another irony in this film is with a sense of destiny, that is, the isomorphism between the ape society and the previous human society. As species that have been conquered and used as experimental objects, after they become rulers, they also form a society full of violence and stratum like human society. In the film, the ape society is roughly divided into two categories: the hawks with the characteristics of an authoritarian military government and the intellectual doves such as ZLA. There are also legal checks and balances in the middle. However, like many societies, the law is often weak in the face of provoked nationalism, and the tough “Superman” is more eye-catching. At the end of the film, We really saw that Taylor was treated unfairly like discrimination. Even if he had language ability, then in a chase, he fled with a primitive female companion, but sent a collapsed and buried statue of liberty on the beach. This is undoubtedly the very bright end of the film, full of shock and aftertaste of uneasiness about the future of mankind. If the first part of this series focuses on the performance of the first irony, then two years later, “lost the scarlet ball” is to give full play to the fate tragedy of the second irony. In this film, Taylor’s spacecraft from the earth also came to the future world. The captain of the search and rescue team was also shocked by the current situation of the earth and faced the pursuit of apes. With the help of ZLA and her husband, he gradually went deep into the forbidden area of ape society, where he not only found Taylor, but also found a few surviving human beings with language ability. They used the frightening illusion of apes to build a protective net and create a settlement. At the same time, in the ape society, the atmosphere of militarism is becoming more and more diffuse. The strong hawks finally came to power, the military government was established, and they also launched a general attack on the restricted area. At the same time, the nuclear weapons left by human society have become the last sustenance of survivors, but this is a desperate sustenance. Finally, in a decisive battle, the nuclear bomb was detonated and the earth was destroyed. This seems to be a tragic cycle. The latecomers did not learn from the forerunners. The social organization of the group seems to inevitably fall into the vicious cycle of class, greed and violence. Therefore, the former victims and apes also learn the way that the perpetrators destroy themselves, which eventually led to the complete destruction of themselves.

After the end of the second film with the destruction of the earth, this series seems unable to continue, but in the third film escape from the scarlet ball, this series not only continues with a negative of negation, but also advances the ideological depth of the film to a new level with the personality of prequel. In the upper part, ZLA, KONIS and milod, who have been helping humans, escaped in a spaceship. Different from the first two films, they returned to the earth 2000 years ago, the earth ruled by humans. At the beginning of the film, we saw that humans who thought it was missing Taylor and others were returning to rescue and land the spaceship. We saw three apes out of the spaceship, Human amazement is evident. After watching the first two scenes of human beings being oppressed by ape society, this one returns to the scene of human arrogance and cruelty, then you will feel deeply anxious for the people who are heading for disaster. ZLA and other apes were treated with kindness at first, but those paranoid people in human society enticed ZLA to tell the reason why human society was about to perish, but explained the suspense left by the first two novels. From ZLA’s mouth, we know that because of a plague, cats and dogs in human society became extinct, so humans began to domesticate apes, not only as pets, but also as labor, more accurately as slaves. Under all kinds of oppression, the anger of apes continued to accumulate until one day, an ape with language ability named Caesar led everyone to rise, Overthrowing human rule, and paradoxically, this ape is likely to be the child of ZLA, who has just been pregnant. This film creates a common time paradox in science fiction films, that is, “the future determines the future”. When you find that the future of mankind is determined by accidental factors from the future, the confusion of causality may completely make you dizzy.

Obviously, people who “worry about the country and the people” in human society also have such fear. How can they not be frightened when they look at the nightmare of burying human society in ZLA’s belly. I always believe that the future that hasn’t happened can be changed, and so can the anxious people in the film, but their mistake is that they don’t understand the essence of the problem. From ZLA’s mouth, we know that the reason why Caesar led the ape uprising is the cruel oppression of mankind, not Caesar himself, and the anxious people mistakenly believe that killing ZLA can prevent all this, and try to avoid the fate of destruction in a cruel way that leads to future tragedies. This is undoubtedly a revelation full of practical significance today. We are often lazy to investigate the profound causes of some tragedies, or find out but lazy to solve them, because solving deep-seated problems often takes too much time, too much patience and too much wisdom, intertwined with practical interests and political reality, It can be seen that the radical measures of show style are often carried out on the surface. For a while, they look happy, but they cause a greater vicious circle and even develop out of control. Shaping enemies is a tradition of human society. It is obviously easier to blame real individuals or a group of people than to pursue deep-seated problems. The ease of killing zlabi for deep reflection and correcting human attitudes towards vulnerable creatures is absolutely astronomical. As viewers, because they see the end, So looking at this scene is more mixed. In the third part of this series, the anti Utopian reflection is reflected to the extreme with such a negative and negative backtracking. Looking at the tragic death of ZLA and her husband, the anxious people in human society are relieved. On the other hand, ZLA is hiding and trusting her child in the circus, leaving a black fable.

Then came the fourth “conquest of the scarlet ball” and the fifth “decisive battle of the scarlet ball”. The standard fell sharply and the ideological nature decreased sharply, becoming a science fiction action film in the usual sense. The former tells the story of Caesar leading apes to resist human rule. At the same time, it also shows Caesar’s reflection and attempts to establish a society in which apes and people live in peace. In the last part, we saw such a harmonious scene at the beginning. However, the violent impulse and power desire of some apes in the ape society, coupled with the desire for revenge of some people in the surviving humans, led to a fierce war between apes and people, continued the tragedy and returned to the situation of the first part.

After watching the five “planet of the apes” series, you will feel a kind of fatalistic despair. However, it is this despair that brings a thorough and profound reflection on this series. This is the charm of anti Utopian films. It tells us that the future may be bleak. At the same time, it tells us that this is caused by the existing bad roots of our society and inspires the audience to reflect on themselves. Although this series set sail more than 40 years ago, today, you will find that its Revelation of the operation law of group society is still effective. It is precisely because of this, especially the classic status of the first book has continued to this day. Of course, when it comes to this series, we can’t help but mention the original novelist, French writer Pierre Pierre Boulle, it is his novels that gave birth to five films in this series, and even two sets of dramas. In addition, Pierre has another novel adapted into a film, that is, the famous World War II film Gui River Bridge.
