King Kong Reviews

    Peter Jackson shows fanboy-like admiration for the original King Kong in this bloated, but very well made remake. There's a lot of care and heart put into this version, even if some of the action sequences go way overboard, and the plot is extremely drawn out.

    Despite being a whoppin' 3 hours and 21 minutes, I liked this movie. The only thing I hated from this one is that its script was written so I could be a vast change from the iconic 1933 movie. Hot take, It did not need to be three hours, not to mention it's longer than Avengers: Endgame. It's not flawless at all, there are many flaws to it, like slow pacing, the unnessecary add-ins to make the movie it's length, and in contrast to the 1933 movie. But unlike the godawful Disney remakes, King Kong 2005 lives up to the OG Kong. Go watch it! it's almost worth 3 hours.

    This was an odd viewing experience in that the special effects were obviously perfectly done and state-of-the-art, as you would expect from the largest movie budget of its time, and the acting was thoroughly spot-on, but there was this unshakeable feeling that the movie sorely lact subtlety. All of the characterization, plot points, action scenes and dialogue seemed one-dimensional, in-your-face and unsurprising, no matter how well they were executed. It was like there was no deep level of thought put into the screenplay - even the excessive jostling of Naomi in the majority of her interactions with Kong seemed meant to be taken as fact despite what should've been obvious severe whiplash. They seemed to substitute a few bizarre segments of surreal/slow-motion cinematography that never made sense in exchange for any real soul. The effects that made Kong realistic were the highlight of the movie, followed closely by the excellent film score.

    This movie was just heartwarming, and a great revision to a classic. The soundtrack was wonderful, the characters were great, the movie was great.

    It may be long. But it's entertaining, it's intense, it's emotional and memorable.

    I have no idea why people gave this movie bad reviews. Maybe because it was too long? Ok. But I still loved every second of it.

    I loved King Kong! Sure, yes, some of the scriptwriting was pretty bad and some of the camera work sucked as well, but apart from that, King Kong was great,
