Audiences will get more than a dystopian future when they line up to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes next month.
The second film in the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise reportedly packs a pro-gun control message, according to a new review of the film in Variety. The story also touches on environmental fear mongering, albeit in a reduced fashion compared to the first installment.
The Apes franchise has always been a politically loaded one, and this latest entry states its left-wing credo in ways both allegorically implicit and bluntly direct. (Youd have to be pretty obtuse to miss the pro-gun-control subtext attached to misdeeds on both sides of the man-monkey battle.) While the previous film functioned as something of a cautionary tale against mans destructive meddling with his environment, Dawn apportions blame a little more equally, as the beasts (introduced in a thrilling, technically jaw-dropping faceoff against a grizzly bear) are shown to be no less reckless an influence on the biosphere than their former superiors. I always think ape better than human, Caesar admits to Malcolm, his speech patterns having evolved rather rapidly even over the course of this film. I see now how like them we are.

“Get your stinking paws off my guns you damn dirty ape!”
I agree, make them buy them. No freebies.
PLANET OF THE APES is a product of the late 60s and there are obvious racial overtones. I wouldn’t say it’s Hollywood PC.
That would explain what reduces the human population
End of the first movie the pilot (who Ceasar had bit) had his nose bleeding as he got on a flight. They showed a flight board with cities all over the world. The infection killed billions and this movie is about the few humans that remained trying to get energy from a Dam in ape controlled territory.
but how did the ape population get so large?
Did I miss something? The article seemed to not include the bias.
A serious plague would certainly put rogue monkeys on a back burner for a while.

Well if they don’t tell the Sheeple they’ll never know will they
I didn’t see the first remake and never had any plans to see this. I am glad that I shall miss absolutely nothing.
They could be paid back for this dido by the suggestion that they are *implying* that apes=blacks. Thus, they are racists.
