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! :-)
