Escape from the Planet of the Apes

Other mistake: As the opening credits roll, the helicopter that brought officials in is taking off. Trouble is, the sand is rushing in back under the chopper rather than blowing away from the rotor wash.

Movie Nut

Other mistake: When Cornelius and Zira should escape through the mechanical door that is opened by a knob in the guard's box there is no way that Cornelius could see which knob he should press, because one of the guards has his face turned to the window that they are hiding under.

Mistakes

While it is essential to the story, there is a problem with apes in the space ship. While it is the one that took Taylor to the future, there is no way the chimps could have salvaged the ship from the water (plus there wasn't enough time for such a salvage operation. Kira and Cornelius were living in the ape city we see in "Beneath the Planet of the Apes" never mentioning to Brent that they found a spaceship he could travel back with). They didn't have the technology for such an operation, no diving suits, and chimps are scared of water. Also, the water would have destroyed the power systems of the ship when it sank.
