Human soldier slogans, as seen on the poster, include the quote "The only good ape is a dead ape." It's a reference to General Ursus' quote from Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970), albeit the tables have turned. See more »
Luca rides a horse in much of the film, often at a gallop. An adult gorilla weighs 300-400 lbs. (136-181 kg.). A horse carrying that much weight wouldn't be able to walk easily, let alone gallop. See more »

The amount of ignorant review claiming any connection to communism, Chinese politics or just plain bad reviews is "astonishing". I use that word lightly based on U.S. ignorance in general.
This is a film about what it means to be human, and how the apes in this movie are more human than the ignorant American warmongers portrayed. Yes, this is likely a political message - an accurate one, too. Nevertheless, there is nothing communist about this movie. Just because it doesn't promote the gun-slinging, southern hick mentality, doesn't' make it anything other than human, American and insightful - not to mention entertainment (good job Serkis and Harrelson!)
