Awe inspiring film that is just visually amazing. OK it may be longer than a flight to Sydney but it keeps your attention for every minute of it. I highly recommend this movie!!!
I agree with the review below. This version was uneccessarily long and the special effects excessive! if anyyone gets a chance to see the 1976 version or indeed the original, go for it. The acting left... Read more a lot to be desired too, not sure what all the hype was about. This was Peter Jackson having a bit of self indulgent fun after his epic L.O.T.R.
I could never get why this was such a huge hit. The special effects are ordinary and the scene where Naomi Watts dances for the ape is hilarious.
Extended version seen: Didn't penalise it for being a remake as it was made as a homage to the original. Naomi deserves a star all to herself. The effects are top drawer especially the street scenes... Read more but it takes twice as long as the original to tell the story so therefore shoots itself in the foot.
This movie is a bit slow at the beginning...but gets better. If you have a soft spot for animals, you might want to take a few boxes of tissues.
Top film! Loved how the music is so fitting and plays such a powerful part in this movie. King Kong will always be in my favourite movies and holds my favourite scene in central park. The scene in central... Read more park on the ice is such a playful and heartfelt moment that shows the delicate lighthearted side that can be found in any animal. The connection between King Kong and Anne is so powerful.
I don't really agree with how a monkey fell for a human
Pointless, egotistical remake of a fossilized concept- really reveals the depth hubris & nerdy obsession that fuels the Jackson inc. Impossible to care about the story & effects do not maketh it okay... Read more. Endless, miscast, boring- surprise surprise.
This is the Bluray one should have in your library to show friends how fantastic Bluray is....this is the go to disc!The detail in every frame is incredible,some shots are almost 3D like....in fact... Read more the images are more detailed than real life! I kid you not!
funny, frightening, romantic, nostalgic, moving and grimly fatalistic, it races along, like its central character, with a speed and grace that utterly belies its great size. would recommend to anyone... Read more that loves remakes and also the kids loved it as well..
