By the time the monkey business you're waiting for finally arrives, it's so anti-climactic don't be surprised to find yourself impatient for the famous Empire State Building finale.

the film plays like Jackson had gotten confused in the production rush and released the 'DVD Director's Cut' to theaters by mistake but the DVD is a gripping, pulse-pounding way to lose an afternoon.

As if we couldn't guess from those exhaustive Lord of the Rings packages, the nearly three hours' worth of extras here are an enlightening watch and light on the usual filler.

One hour and some odd minutes into the film, we get our first glimpse of Kong, as well as our first looks at some horrendously bad CGI work.

The two-disc DVD contains Jackson's post-production diaries; Skull Island, a travel to the Island that uncovers facts about the mysterious place; and Kong's New York 1933, which explores the vaudeville, skyscraper boom, and Empire State Building.

The only missteps are Jackson's insistence on including an overly long version of the bloody spider pit battle that he obviously wishes were in the original film, as well as a sappy Central Park butt-skating scene and his casting of Brody.
