In a futuristic world that has embraced ape slavery, Caesar, the son of the late simians Cornelius and Zira, surfaces after almost twenty years of hiding out from the authorities, and prepares for a slave revolt against humanity.

Tim Burton claimed the ending was not supposed to make any sense, but it was more of a cliffhanger, to be explained in a possible sequel. "It was a reasonable cliffhanger that could be used in case 20th Century Fox, or another filmmaker wanted to do another movie," he explained. See more »
After the refugees cross the river, they set up camp and make fires. They are in the middle of the desert and there are no trees as far as the horizon. Where did they get the firewood? See more »
It's not good as the original but still a fun ride! I read a lot of bad comments of this movie. A lot of people was expecting the plot like the original. What do you expect, it's a Tim Burton film! It has action, dark humor, some romance, drama, and so on. If you are going to see this film, don't expect it to be like the original. Expect it to be another great Tim Burton film. I had so much fun watching this film but it has some flaws. See it, but do not expect it to be just like the 1968 version. It would be better if there was a sequel. The ending was not as good as I thought it would be. If Tim made a sequel, then the ending would be explained better because it was confusing. So go ahead! See it!
