5:20 Battle for the Planet of the Apes 2020HT

This was a bad movie.

But it has many redeeming points, such as:

* Incredibly good shooting by big cannons by the mutants/bad guys.

* Bad guys are always shot with bat-angle camera work underground.

* Spray foam insulation on cars to make them look melted.

* Pre Road Warrior school buses and attitude.

* 'Plosions.  More than one.

* Guns that, when shot, make the actors near them wince.

* A Paul Williams that looks more like Paul Williams as an orangutan than he does like a person in real life.

* John Huston as a script reader that actually isn't in the movie at all.

* John Landis as the afro guy in the middle of the pen.

All of which means, you can't hate it.

Paul Williams makes the movie for me. I love the character of Virgil. I also like the way they came full circle with the Alpha-Omega Bomb. But yeah, Battle has problems.
