Conquest of the Planet of the Apes

Revealing mistake: When McDonald is in the tunnels and is called to pick up the phone, he picks up a red phone. It is a standard Bell TouchTone desk phone. To make the phone look more futuristic, there was no cord and it was disguised as a cordless phone. The port that the cord would plug into is covered by a piece of colored tape. This also can be seen in the operations center of Ape Control when the worker picks up the phone.

Continuity mistake: When the apes are breaking into the command post, just as Breck says "Shoot them! Shoot them all!", the door is about half sliced down. A few shots later, the door is almost entirely sliced down with no time to do so.

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: During Caesar's big speech at the end, you can tell in some of the close-ups of his face that his mouth isn't moving.

Trivia: In the area Caesar yells "Lousy human bastards!", the black uniforms of the Ape patrol look a lot like the Nazi SS uniforms.

Woman: [Talking about cigarettes.] Funny, now that I know these things won't kill me, I don't enjoy them.

Announcer: Ape Management... Is in the hands of the apes.

Question: Could someone please tell me where all the other walking apes/chimpanzees/orangutans came from? Caesar was the only surviving ape from the last film, so where did all the rest come from?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Caesar wasn't the only surviving ape, just the only surviving talking ape. Conquest of the Planet of the Apes is set roughly 20 years after Escape from the Planet of the Apes, and in that time man began to keep apes as pets (disease wiped out dogs and cats) and (most likely through breeding), the apes evolved into what we see in the film.
