King Kong (2005)
Did Jackson kill the beast?
King Kong...... What to say first. It's certainly a big film. While the movie is still fresh in my mind i'd like to say a few words. I don't usually do this with reviews but as my own opinions on this film are so torn i'm going to devise a pros and cons list and you can judge for yourself.
-Solid performances by Black, Brody, Watts -Amazing CGI -Good direction, good musical score -Has left nothing out of the original, and even adds to it
-Very long, not a film for those who find cinema seats as uncomfortable as I do -New scenes of intimacy added in between Kong and Watts are cringe worthy -Due to films length, it gets tiresome towards the end, even during action sequences -Has very little originality. Not only is it a remake but the kind of action seen in the movie is very typical of todays adventure films.
My main issue with this film is the length. For those who aren't bothered by a nice long visit to the flicks may not find this an issue. Some sequences and sections of the film seem to take forever, and you just find yourself asking "when are they gonna catch Kong" or "when are they gonna get to New York". The film has incredible special effects and some very impressive (however unrealistic) action sequences, but due to it's length i'd highly recommend a DVD version, one that you can pause and go have a drink....
