Critic Review - Chicago Reader

There's more soul to be found in any Kong close-up than in this film's overplayed reactions.

Overplayed reactions? This guy attacks great action and special effects movies like it's chic and cool. He gave Elektra a positive review. yeah.

Yeah, he's right, anyone who sees real live dinosaurs coming to eat them would only be mildly scared ****less.

If you don't like the film, more power to you, but please stop trying to cover your opinions up with idiotic explinations.

dont you know they that the idea of kong was because of the morden day kong ride at the time was being made and they made that robot have its muscles move and so which gives them the idea of making a few dinosaurs into robots.

I thought the reactions were underplayed if anything. I shit myself when a scary looking bloke looks at me... God knows what I would do if I had a pack of dinosaurs trying to eat me! I normally agree to disagree with a critic if I think they have done a bad review. But this is just moronic.

I enjoyed this movie, but they missed the boat on the classic fight of all time which would have looked great with these special effects - a Tyrannosaurus against a Triceratops.
