The airline pilot arguing with Will’s grandfather just makes the scene feel telegraphed at the start of it, but the worst offender is the character Tom Felton plays as Dodge Landon; the caretaker and abuser of Caesar. His performance looks like it should have been in a cheesy horror flick and I couldn’t believe that he’s given the line “Take your hands off me, you damn dirty ape!”
The second offender to me is David Oyelowo who plays Steven Jacobs. He’s the rich arrogant executive that grants the vaccine testing on chimps. Jacobs calls Caesar a “monkey” to degrade him, after Caesar has passed judgment on Jacobs. I feel the social undertones of the original Planet of the Apes is warranted because it brings to light many social issues, one of them being discrimination.
