In the year 2029, astronaut Leo Davidson (Wahlberg) is forced to make an emergency landing on an Earth-like planet. He soon learns that this strange place is inhabited by primitive humans and English-speaking apes. Following his capture and subsequent escape, Leo assembles a small band of defiant humans and empathetic apes in an attempt to re-establish contact with his space station. Freedom or complete annihilation is in the hands of the rebellion against the gorilla army. Based on a novel by Pierre Boulle.

The discrete 5.1 soundtracks are superb, in terms of the their dimensional attributes and the recording. The fidelity is state-of-the-art, ranking among the best soundtracks currently available on DVD. Danny Elfman
I think that the most important aspect of a technical publication is to be strict with the choice of content and contributing Editors. I feel well-informed by WSR, and the reading of my monthly issue helps me to appreciate the home theatre experience, especially with DVD reviews and the new equipment section. Widescreen Review is for everyone interested in a good home theatre movie experience!
