Becky and I went to see “King Kong” on Sunday night. The Fandango website at King Kong describes the movie as follows:
“A crew of explorers and filmmakers set out to investigate the myths of the legendary creature King Kong. Traveling to Skull Island, they discover a land unaffected by time as Kong lives with dinosaurs that have been hidden and protected from man for centuries. As the crew struggles to survive on the treacherous island, they eventually capture Kong through his fascination with a beautiful woman. Taken back to New York, it may only be a matter of time before Kong escapes his confines.”
As expected, Peter Jackson who directed The Lord of the Rings trilogy did an awesome job on this remake of the legendary King Kong. It’s a long movie, but it’s really exciting and the special effects are incredible. There was tremendous attention to detail in every aspect of the film. They took God’s name in vain a bit too much for me to want to take my kids to it or buy the DVD, but this was a great blockbuster film that lived up to our expectations.
The acting was really good and the characters were cast perfectly. Jack Black plays a great self absorbing Director who is looking out for number one. Naomi Watts is a beautiful woman who grabs the love and attention of the giant King Kong and Adrien Brody is an unlikey hero who comes to her rescue. There were a few parts of the film that were a bit over the top, but it’s King Kong. It was like Jurasic Park meets a giant gorilla.
Becky thought it was too long and didn’t like it as much as I did, but she still thought it was a good movie. She would recommend it as a rental, so that you don’t have to sit in the theater for three hours and I think that the best place to see this movie is on the big screen with a popcorn, a drink and a large audience of people.
