Conquest of the Planet of the Apes

Continuity mistake: After the apes began revolting in the communication center, Governor Breck shoots an ape in the face. Blood splatters on the uniform of the officer holding the ape. A moment later the officer stands up, but his uniform is clean. This is the unrated version. (01:36:30)


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. (01:13:25)

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: In the electrocution scene, whenever Caesar is screaming you can see the hole in the roof of his mouth for Roddy to breath through the front of the makeup.

Other mistake: In a scene after Caesar picks his name where they are outside then walking down stairs outside the civic center in the plaza (filmed at UC Irvine), you can catch a quick glimpse of students or faculty in the upper right corner with cameras taking pictures.

Other mistake: We know that, after Cornelius and Zira were executed at the end of the previous movie, "Escape from the Planet of the Apes," baby Caesar was only an infant who was just starting to say "Mama." In "Conquest," we know that 20-year-old Caesar was raised (and secretly educated) by Armando, the circus owner. But, after 20 years of being raised and secretly educated by Armando (who has a thick Mexican accent), Caesar has a distinct British accent.

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

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

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?
