There are some lines in this movie that were famous lines from the old Planet of the Apes. They are "get your stinkin' hands off me you damn dirty human" (previously "get your stinkin paws off me you damn dirty Ape.") and " damn them, damn them, damn them all to hell" (previously "damn you, damn you, damn you all to hell").

Plot hole: The "video history" of the crashed USAF ship makes it very clear that the planet is uninhabited when they "landed". I can understand how a race of apes develops - they had a bunch of them on board. I can understand how a race of humans develops - they are descendants of the original crew. What I don't understand is... where the heck did all the horses come from?
Revealing: The humans on the planet live a prehistoric existence with little technology, however, they seem to be remarkably good at making foundation garments. Estella Warren spends most of the movie running around in nothing but an animal skin and yet her considerable assets are always held firmly in place.
Other: When the group returns to the lake where Leo crashed, as he is underwater leaving the pod with his pack, he has it in his left hand. The next scene he grabs Estella Warren's hand with his left. The pack is gone. As they swim up, if you watch it frame by frame, the pack instantly appears back around his left forearm before they surface.
Continuity: When the pod carrying the Mark Wahlberg character crashes into the lake, there is a human figure on the opposite side of the lake to the camera position, slowly walking right to left. The pod is travelling left to right. The figure is on the left-hand side of the screen, in the trees, but clearly visible. It can't be one of the humans that Wahlberg bumps into a few minutes later, as it's not running due to being pursued by apes, and its not moving away from the oncoming spacecraft (if monkeys scare these guys, then a crash-landing ball of fire would surely freak them out).
Continuity: When Leo dives in the pond where his pod crashed, to get his bag, it is dark and dingy, yet when you see an underwater shot the water is a clear blue/green colour and you can see the sun (or some form of light) shining through the water, yet when he comes out there is no light and it is dingy again.
Continuity: When Leo and his group of rebel apes are starting to ride their horses across the river, the Bonham-Carter character falls off her horse and he swims across the river with her on his back. The other apes can't follow because they're afraid of water. So they arrive horseless. However, when they get across the river, suddenly everybody has horses.
