King Kong 2005

Jackson will bring his sweeping cinematic vision to the iconic story of the gigantic ape-monster captured in the wilds and brought to civilization where he meets his tragic fate. The screenplay by Jackson, Walsh and Boyens is based on the original story by Merian C. Cooper and Edgar Wallace, which became the classic 1933 RKO Radio Pictures film, directed by adventurers Cooper and Ernest B. Schoesdack. Jackson will employ the latest motion picture technology to cinematically portray the timeless tale of the beast and his beauty. He will expand on the chapters of the tale that take place in the mysterious and dangerous jungles of Skull Island, and his Kong promises to be a unique and breathtaking creation. (read more)

King Kong Movie Review by Seth (12/16/2005)

Are you not entertained?

Very enjoyable movie. It will not win any Oscars for performances and you will not come away with a greater understanding of humanity, but you will most definitely leave entertained. I could watch Kong fight a T. Rex for days. The movie is quite long (just a hair over 3 hours), so it came...

King Kong Movie Review by Filmkiller (7/21/2010)

What's remarkable about Peter Jackson's King Kong is that it encapsulates both the pinnacle and the pits of filmmaking technique. Thankfully there's more of the former than there is the latter, but if rough edges could've been buffed off, this might've been one of the best films in decades.

The primary motivator in King...

King Kong Movie Review by Zara (12/14/2008)

This was a good version of KING KONG, heavily borrowed from the original version but with a good amount of tongue in cheek by director Peter Jackson. If there's anything that I can admire about Jackson, it's that he's practically OCD and Asperger's rolled into one when it comes to delivering a project that is 100%...

King Kong Movie Review by Chris (6/13/2008)

King Kong is an amazing and certainly mind blowing movie. The man behind the Lord of The Rings films Peter Jackson is at it again with remastering the 1933 original. With all the hype and criticism which sorrounds the original King Kong, it is a stretch to make the movie equal up to what the original has done for the film...

King Kong Movie Review by Jarrod (6/13/2008)

Peter Jackson's 'King Kong' is an extraordinary accomplishment; it may well be the best version of this classic story, and it certainly has more emotional resonance than the original 1933 film. This is one of the few movies that actually came very close to making me cry; that is thanks to Andy Serkis, who provides the...
