Human soldier slogans as seen on the poster include the quote, "The only good ape is a dead ape," which is a reference to the gorilla General Ursus' popular quote from Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970), albeit the tables have turned. See more »
The US Army unit featured as the main protagonists fail to use any scouts when moving, nor any sentries when in camp, meaning the apes are easily able to follow them and at one point a human child can walk into a fortified camp unchallenged and unobserved. The use of scouts and sentries is basic procedure for any professional military. See more »
This movie was beyond boring. It was also very pretentious. There were so many plot holes in this film. Way more plot holes than Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The cinematography was very mediocre. It's the same bland, darkly lit look from the previous Dawn of the Planet of the Apes film. Camera placement wasn't very good and it had no use of the quadrant system when it came to framing either. The CGI is probably the best it's ever been, but it's nothing special. It's just a bunch of talking apes riding horses and shooting machine guns with one arm. The direction had no style, it had weak action sequences that were very stupid with very little inventive camera work. The OST composed by Michael Giacchino might be one of the most laziest OST I have ever heard. It tries to be deep and biblical, but it just ends up being laughable. This is one of the worst films of the year and probably one of the worst films I have ever seen. Highly overrated.
