Storyline

Ann Darrow, a down-on-her-luck actress looking for work, meeting film director Carl Denham, who offers her a job in a new movie. They board the Venture to leave for the film shoot. The monkey that lives on board causes trouble throughout the trip. They arrive on the island and the natives, who are friendly to the crew, ask that the crew leave Ann so they can sacrifice her. Ann is then sacrificed to the giant ape King Kong who makes off with her into the jungle. Together they fight a dinosaur and are off the island in five minutes. The film then follows Kong's rampage of New York City. Kong takes Anne up on top of the Empire State Building. The biplanes come and attack Kong with guns, but miss most of the time. When all the planes have been knocked down the army sends two blimps with a net in between them to catch Kong. They catch him successfully. Kong tries to get out of the net, but the net rips and when Kong reaches for Ann, he falls from the net. He bangs into a balcony and ... Written by Richard Canipe

A (arguably) good remake.
29 December 2007 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Genre: Cartoon remake, America, Scary island, Film stars. ? ? Actors: The one and only Dudley Moore :-) (C.B Denham) and Jodi Benson, (Anne).

Main characters: C.B Denham, Anne and the mighty Kong.?

What happens: Those of you who have watched the original of this (or another remake) will know the story (I didn't). An ambitious film director is making a motion picture – but he has one thing lacking… His star. Oh dear. Luckily, he finds a beautiful and feisty apple thief Anne and within eight hours she is on a cruise ship to their film setting! It turns out things don't go as planned though…

My thoughts: I like this remake. Already the songs are going around in my head (pleasantly luckily) and also good bits of the film. I like the film itself, never having seen any Kong film or series beforehand. The characters, actors, story and action are enjoyable, pleasant and also exciting. One highlight of the film for me was Dudley Moore, whom I really like (even though I've only seen him in about one other thing). Jodi Benson, the same girl who gave us our little red-haired mermaid is here too as Anne! ? ? The songs are enjoyable, as I've told you before. Some people may not like them. For one thing there are quite a few and they are mainly aimed for the enjoyment of children (well – I guess this whole film was aimed for children REALLY). Some cautious parents may wish to fast forward some of the scary parts for young children. Some of the explosions, some of the dinosaurs and the screaming may be unpleasant for both adults and children. Also, some people might not like the sidekicks, a monkey and a boy. I myself thought they enhanced the entertainment and friendliness of the film, of course others may think otherwise. So all in all, not perfect, but I certainly enjoyed this film!

Recommended to: People who would like a harmless remake, the BFK(big friendly kong), children and families who enjoy an average yet very pleasant children's film. Enjoy! :-)
