The King is dead. Long live the King!
My first time watching the "Unrated Director's Cut". While it's surprisingly more violent, that's not the reason it's better. It's the changes in the ending, while they are ever so slight they speak volumes in tone.

Roddy McDowall really steps up to the plate in this one as his character, Caesar, is the sole principal character this time around. It's his first chance in the series to really play out a real character arc and it works out beautifully.…
