* HilariousInHindsight: The SpreadingDisasterMapGraphic in the credits is far from funny. However, [[VideoGame/PlagueInc the mobile game it ultimately inspired]] uses a rather similar way of telling where disease spreads. Bonus points because by the time of the [[Film/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes sequel]], 20th Century Fox made a deal with the creators of Plague Inc. to allow use of the Simian Flu in their game, bringing the connection full-circle.

** In this movie, Jamie Harris portrays a friend of the non-humans, while in this film's sequel, Kirk Acevedo plays a vicious [[FantasticRacism human racist.]] Both appeared in almost the exact same roles in the second season of ''Series/AgentsOfShield'' - and Harris' character even saves Skye from Acevedo's.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: After several sequels to the classic original that failed to live up to the original and an earlier reboot that resulted in a StillbornFranchise, ''Rise'' became the first movie since the original to attain both widespread critical acclaim and commercial success.

* NarmCharm: [[spoiler:Caesar's "NO!"]] would typically be this, but instead it ended up being a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* HarsherInHindsight: Koba killing Jacobs. In the context of this film, it's a triumph against an AssholeVictim oppressor. However, in the context of [[Film/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes the sequel]], it's Koba's first kill, and he happened to like the taste....

** There are other influences as well. Let's see... An infant from an oppressed race is rescued by one of the oppressors' race. However, he is aware of his origins, and as he grows up, he injures one of the oppressors and is forced to flee. Sometime after, he finds himself in the possession of a powerful force that empowers his own people while simultaneously sending a plague onto the oppressors. He and his fellows are then hindered as they try to reach a promised land located beyond a large body of water, but they manage to miraculously defeat their enemies, allowing them to progress. [[Literature/BookofExodus Sounds familiar ?]]
* UncannyValley: Caesar's facial expressions are decidedly ''not'' chimp-like and a little ''too'' human. Justified in that he can't really be considered a chimpanzee anymore and he was also raised by humans.

* {{Narm}}: [[spoiler: Caesar's BigNo]] is CrowningMomentOfAwesome, NarmCharm or this.
** Making it worse is that it comes ''immediately'' after the absolute {{Narm}} of the gratuitous and forced CallBack to the original film's most famous line.

* {{Narm}}: [[spoiler: Caesar's BigNo]] is CrowningMomentOfAwesome, NarmCharm or this.
** Making it worse is that it comes ''immediately'' after
Dodge's CallForward lines -- "It's a madhouse!" and "Get your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!" -- are painfully forced. Although the absolute {{Narm}} of latter has the gratuitous and forced CallBack to the original film's most famous line.benefit of directly preceding some Narm Charm...

*** Dodge's treatment of the apes, period. Yes, mistreat, tease, and torment the animals that are intelligent, have long-term memories, and are physically ''much'' stronger than you. [[TheDogBitesBack See if that doesn't]] [[BullyingADragon bite you in the ass later]].
