New this month Continuity mistake: When Cornelius arrives to escape Taylor from his cell, he gives the guard a note who has a cigar in his mouth. When Cornelius tackles the guard, the size of the cigar differs between shots.

Razzer

New this month Revealing mistake: As Cornelius tackles the guard and yells "Grab him!" to Taylor, Cornelius then strikes the guard over the head, knocking him unconscious. When Cornelius begins pushing the guard over to Taylor's cell, you can see the guard is already unconscious before he gets struck.

Razzer

New this month Visible crew/equipment: After Taylor flees the market, he enters a museum and begins to run down a spiral staircase. As he reaches the bottom of the staircase, to the right of shot, a cameraman's shadow is visible on one of the carvings and the staircase's support column.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When Taylor is trying to describe where he came from to Zira and Cornelius, he has Cornelius hold up a map. Cornelius holds the left side and Taylor holds up the right. As Zira says "You fell into the water here?", the map is slanted to the side. In the next shot, Taylor suddenly isn't holding the right side of the map and the map is more levelled out.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When Taylor is in Zira's office, he has written on several notes. You can see the handwriting is completely different to the note he wrote "My name is Taylor" on earlier.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: After Dodge is killed, Taylor finds him in the field and holds him. Dodge's head changes position between shots.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When Taylor, Landon and Dodge discover the humans, when Dodge says "Blessed are the vegetarians", both Taylor and Dodge are standing even with each other and Landon is standing about an inch or two behind Taylor and Dodge. In the next shot, Landon and Dodge are standing even with each other and Taylor is standing almost a foot away from Landon and Dodge.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: Taylor, Landon and Dodge go for a dip in the river and they get wet. The humans then take their stuff, so they get out of the river and they are all mostly dry (still a bit damp, but less dry than they were before).

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When Taylor, Landon and Dodge do water check, during the shot where Landon says "Thunder and lightning, no rain", Landon is looking down on the ground. In the next shot, as Landon finishes the line with "If we could just get a fix", he is suddenly looking upwards.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When the three are doing water check, the wide angles show Landon sitting in the sun, but the closer angles show Landon sitting in the shade.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When Taylor and Landon discuss Stewart's death on the rocks, their hair goes from being blown in the wind to resting still between shots.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: After the ship has sunk, Taylor, Landon and Dodge make camp on some rocks. In the shot where Taylor says "Dodge, run your soil test. Got your sensors? Geiger counter?" in the background is the life raft used when they escaped the ship. The raft is resting on some rocks that are bright colored. In the next shot, in a shot of Landon the rocks the lift raft is resting on are all dark colored. The raft has also moved closer to the water.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When Taylor ties Doctor Zaius up to the log, shots from behind Zaius show the rope at the top of the log just above Zaius' head to be wrapped around the log only twice. Shots from in front of Zaius show the rope to be wrapped tightly a dozen times around the log.

Razzer

New this month Other mistake: Taylor got shot in the neck. Before his neck is bandaged, his neck is shown to have blood on it, but no bullet hole from where the ape shot him.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: After the apes have blown up the cave, Taylor and Nova are shown riding away on a horse. In a close-up, Taylor looks at Nova and places his hand on Nova's cheek, but in the reverse angle he suddenly doesn't have his hand on her cheek and he is now looking straight forward.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: After Cornelius knocks out the guard, Cornelius then ties the guard to the cell bars. In the shot where Cornelius says "I'm Doctor Zira's nephew. This abduction was her idea", it can be noticed the fingers on the guard's right hand are resting freely. Then as Taylor says "Get me out of this", the fingers on the guard's right hand are almost clenched together.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When Zira looks at the "My name is Taylor" on the notepad she says "Get me a collar and leash." The shot then cuts to Taylor in the cell. In this shot, he has a few strands of hay along his arm, but in the reverse angle, there's hardly any hay on along his arm at all.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When Julius starts hitting Taylor in his cell, Taylor drops the notepad and pen he is holding and it lands about 4-5 inches away from him. A couple of shots later, the notepad is suddenly an inch away from Taylor without being touched.

Razzer

New this month Continuity mistake: When Cornelius releases Taylor from his cell after knocking out Lucius the guard, Lucius' hands are shown to be tied above the horizontal lining along the cell. Then as Cornelius says "We've got to move fast", the guard's hands are now tied below the horizontal lining along the cell.

Razzer

Revealing mistake: Most of the posed, fake displays in the ape's Museum of Natural History contain real people who are slightly moving if one pays careful attention. Especially noticeable are those posing with objects held in - or above - their hands.
