Time of the Apes (1987, JAP/USA) C-97m. * D: Kiyo Sumi Fukazawa, Atsuo Okunaka. Starring Reiko Tokunaga, Kiroko Saito, Masaaki Kaji. Ultra-cheesy ripoff of PLANET OF THE APES (1968) about a woman and her two children, who make a time leap into the future, which is ruled by apes, much like in the films of the 70s. Can they escape? Do you want them to? Not completely without interest, but horrible dubbing, poor make-up effects and not to mention silly plot do this one in. Edited from a 1974 Japanese television series titled SARU NO GUNDAN (ARMY OF THE APES).
