KING KONG

 

The question: could they make another King Kong worthy of the 1933 original?

Yes they did, and it's brilliant in every way.

The mist-shrouded Skull Island is one of the most haunting settings in the history of film making, I think.

I know it's great, because after three hours, I knew I wanted to see it again.

King Kong is nothing less than a modern miracle--not only has Peter Jackson captured the feel of the original 1933 classic, but given it new life.

This Kong is no-nonsense, and for good reason; the inhabitants of Skull Island don't let up for a moment, and are way scarier than their black & white counterparts.

But in the end, everything is as it should be, a beautifully made action-adventure love story.

It was beauty killed the beast.

The remake of King Kong was the fulfillment of a life-long dream of filmmaker Peter Jackson.

He puts together the best elements of the 1933 & 1976 versions of the movie & combines them with his own passion & creative senses for the material.

The new King Kong is a perfect demonstration of the industry's most brilliant advances in computer animation.

What stands out in the story is a very human drama of sympathy, greed, loss, bravery, creativity, silliness, & love.
