I found myself rooting for the Apes in this movie like no other time before.
I saw more honesty and truth in the eyes of the apes than I did in the eyes of the humans.
And Ceazar, their leader, like all other fictional types that for some reason always befriends man over their own kind, kind of discussed me after a while.
As the outlaw ape said 'Humans can't be trusted'.
They all start off nice, when in a position of weakness, but follow the same path of conquest through cunning deception and lies.
There's always a sell out ape in every tribe, one that always sees value in 'the enemy', one that always needs the enemies approval in order to feel whole and complete.
But in the Movie one Outlaw ape wasn't having that anymore...
This gangster ape here just wasn't having it, wasn't going to fall for mans supremacy anymore, tricks, slow domination.
Sublime 'humanism' is even shown through how the apes are depicted.
The more intelligent the ape, the more 'light skinned' they were.
They make Ceasar, their leader, the one who speaks most human, appear to be 'Euro'.
Odd how even movies are used as tools to project ideas of superiority, as if others don't notice this.
In real life the Apes would have destroyed the humans, but in movie you have Ceasar falling in love with man all over again, helping them to heal.
And once the humans heal we all know goodness well they're not going to settle upon being ruled by apes.
So like Superman, The auto bots, and some of the X-men, who find man so invaluable, it always comes back to bite them in the end.
Kobo, the outlaw ape knows better, and as such movie vilifies him, when actually he's the hero, cause he knows better.
Man is not now, or ever, to be trusted.
