* 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....

* GeniusBonus: Caesar explains why the apes should work in teams by using a bundle of sticks. In ancient Rome, from which Caesar owes his name, a bundle of sticks (or "fasces") was a symbol of authority.
** Which in turn was where the word "fascism" comes from.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: This film was widely mocked before release as appearing to be an ill attempt to revive what was pretty much a dead franchise, especially after a bomb of a remake ten years before. Then it came out and, to everyone's surprise, turned into a critical success, with a groundbreaking performance by Creator/AndySerkis, as well as a commercial success, bringing hope back to the series.

* HilariousInHindsight: The SpreadingDisasterMapGraphic in the credits is far from funny. However, [[VideoGame/Plague Inc 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.

** 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.

* SpiritualLicensee: OrsonScottCard, author of ''Literature/EndersGame'', believes ''Rise'' to be "[[http://www.hatrack.com/osc/reviews/everything/2011-08-11.shtml the first truly successful adaptation of [his] novel... to appear on the screen]]". Aside from the protagonist being a chimp, the two stories are surprisingly similar: a child possessing seemingly unnatural intelligence is taken away from his family to be raised in an isolated environment by a group of manipulative adults who want to use his skills for their own ends, but he gradually develops his reasoning skills to become a strategic genius, wins the loyalty of a small group of devoted companions, and leads an outnumbered army to victory against another species--[[spoiler: inadvertently wiping out the other species in the process]].

* IdiotPlot: Let's face it, ''nothing'' in this movie could have happened if it weren't for the vast majority of the human characters acting like complete idiots. Prominent examples include two scientists being completely unaware that one of their test chimps had been pregnant, a CEO putting an untested drug into mass production, a doctor not being quarantined after being exposed to said untested drug, and a guy picking up an electric taser ''while standing in a puddle of water''.
