Goofs

The Colonel uses a 1911 as his weapon of choice. When Caesar and another ape are brought before him, he executes the ape and turns the gun on Caesar. The hammer on the gun is in the forward position. Since the gun is a 1911, the hammer would be in the back position after firing. See more »

Quotes

Caesar: If we strive but fail, and the world remains armed against itself, then we've been divided, because the hunger for peace is in the hearts of all.

Underwhelming
15 July 2017 | by (Newport, RI USA) – See all my reviews

Saw it on opening night.

My Girlfriend - An important prequel to the Charleton Heston "Planet of the Apes". Explains so much in the original. Fabulous special effects. Loved it.

Me - Some really corny stock lines to show apes have feelings too. Action shots that probably look way better in 3D. The ending is reminiscent of Moses crossing the Red Sea.

Idle thought while waiting for something to happen in the movie - the apes are nowhere near anatomically correct. But then it would have had to get an R rating instead of PG-13.

I was left distinctly underwhelmed.

I suspect the small audience that barely filled 20% of the theater was too.
