‚ÄúRise of the Planet of the Apes is about our civilization reaching a point of no return,‚ÄĚ says director Rupert Wyatt. ‚ÄúEvents unfold through the eyes of Caesar, a super-intelligent chimpanzee who at a young age sees humans as being capable of wonderful things, like art and reason. And then he begins to see humanity‚Äôs dark side ‚Äď oppression, bigotry, and the ostracizing of what and who we don‚Äôt understand. Another key theme is humanity‚Äôs hubris ‚Äď our arrogance in thinking that we can twist, push, cheat, or circumvent the laws of nature, without consequences. The movie pits humans against nature ‚Äď and against themselves ‚Äď leading to a resolution that sees humans and apes on the path that will take them to a new and shocking world order.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThe film taps into our most primal fear of the Alpha of our planet being usurped ‚Äď literally letting another species take over the world ‚Äď and asks how would that play out,‚ÄĚ concludes Rupert Wyatt.

Totally thought it was a Gorilla Grodd movie.
Bummed it isn't, but still sort've interested. It's up there with Apollo 18 in my list.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.
Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.
Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.
War = Life
