Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Corrected entry: Apes do not possess the physical capacity for human speech. Their vocal chords are simply incapable of it, no matter how intelligent they become.

Correction: In the first movie in this franchise, Caesar spoke after he was exposed to the updated ALZ-113 drug. It is shown that this drug causes a physical side effect in humans when we see a doctor sneeze blood after he was exposed to the drug. Since this drug causes physical changes in humans, it is not unlikely that it could also cause a physical change in apes as well, allowing Caesar and other exposed apes to speak.


Maybe the drug only affects humans physically. Ape anatomy is different from humans, so it's not unreasonable that the drug only physically affects humans but not apes, and that the drug only affects apes mentally.

Koba: Caesar weak!
Caesar: Koba weaker.



When Koba steals an Armored Security Vehicle class M1117A Guardian, he kills the gunner from the turret and then somehow manages to use the 240B attached to the turret. First, it takes three men/apes to operate the ASV, and second, the ASV cannot be operated from the turret. In that scene, it is assumed that Koba is operating the entire vehicle, something most humans cannot do or do not know how to do. Let alone a 240B, MK19, or .50 Cal M2 Browning. The ASV turned in the direction of the wall, which was the only way that the Apes were able to breach the city walls. This is also kind of an important plot hole blunder too because if it were not for the breach from the ASV, the Apes would not have won. The other blunder from this is that the gunner would not have been exposed from the hatch, since the ASV was using .50Cal and MK19. No need to use the 240B.
