Despite the goofiness of Ricardo Montalban's character, Conquest is pretty damn dark and mean; it really feels like a rightful heir to the original POTA more than any of the other movies.
We watched the uncut version on Blu-Ray and it's easy to see the differences. This version was a lot more violent, with some serious (though still obviously fake) blood shed.
Easily my third favorite of the series, and maybe even edges out Beneath The Planet of the Apes if I watch it a few more times. My kids really liked this one a lot.
