Ok, obviously a Sci-Fi title like this requires a certain suspension of disbelief. And I'll admit that I'm just watching it for the first time
tonight. But there's one SFX (Special Effects) issue that is just driving me a bit nuts. In the opening scene, Ceaser's son gets attacked by a bear
while the apes are hunting caribou, or maybe elk. He has several claw marks across his chest and one on his face as a result of the attack. But
here's the problem. The wounds, for the duration of the movie, never even scab over.
This is obviously a film which is heavy in CGI. They have to model every ape in it. And they did a fantastic job. But the integral storyline takes
place over a period of at least a week, if not more. And they never bother to update the model for Ceaser's son after the attack. His wounds always
look fresh and oozing bright red blood. Why the serious oversight for such a central character?
Now, as I am posting from my phone, I can't directly attach a picture, but here's a link to the model with the exact same state of the wounds he
maintains throughout the film.
So, just a brief rant about an otherwise well-made piece of cinema. Any thoughts?
