Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Factual error: 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.

Continuity mistake: At the Dam Hydro Plant Caesar throws Koba on his back and pummels him. Then they roll once to the right, which now puts Koba on top of Caesar. Yet a quick-cut to their faces shows they kept Caesar on top, still pummeling Koba.

Factual error: In the scene where Gary Oldman looks at his iPad after the power has been restored, the power shows as being 74% full, meaning it's charged far too fast. Plus the charger is plugged into the iPad, so the battery should have a charging symbol, which it does not.

Question: Although it's shown in the beginning that due to the leakage and worldwide spread of the experimental drug at the "Gen-Sys" lab the human race was about to end. Yet a few did survive. How exactly then the creator of the drug, James Franco die? Caesar was somehow taken to the very same home James lived and operated there itself, was there any reason to bring Caesar back to his childhood home again?

Chosen answer: The circumstances of Will's death are not revealed in the movie, but presumably he either died from the virus or was killed in the violence that erupted after the breakdown of society. Caesar was taken back to his childhood home because he guided them there, presumably wishing to return to a location that he associated with good times while he recovered from his injuries.

Question: Why is there a derelict battleship beneath the bridge? It is easily identifiable as one because of its 2 front main cannons. No battleships are in service any more with any navy in the world.

Chosen answer: There are many mothballed and museum warships in harbors all over the US and a few still have operable engines. People would try to flee major cities infected with the plague by any means. Or even if the engines were out maybe a tugboat was pulling a derelict full of refugees and the Navy destroyed it to maintain quarantine or it was cut loose and sank.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Towards the end, when Dreyfus is about to blow up the building from the underground, why didn't Malcolm try and convince the guys to hold up the blow up, rather than picking up the gun and eventually letting it been blown? Also once the C4 is blown how did they survive it when they were right beneath the tower?

dhavami

Chosen answer: He knows that, given what's happened, there's almost no chance of persuading Dreyfus that the apes can be reasoned with, so he tries to threaten them into backing down. Unfortunately, this fails. Malcolm survived the blast because he was able to dive out of the doorway before the C4 detonated. Those who were still in the room died instantly.
