A film review by Kingdom Of Legends
Copyright 2006 Kingdom Of Legends
I'm sitting here trying to write a review about the modern version of King Kong directed by Peter Jackson, and I've realized that words can not describe how much I've enjoyed the movie. I've watched the old King Kong movie when I was a little child, I can't remember that movie in detail, but I've heard that this movie is the same as that old movie (the story line that is) which is cool. I like it when "old" movies are remake when special effects are more advanced... I'm a big special effects fan. And to add the magic of Peter Jackson, it was wonderful?
Like I've said words, can not describe how much I've enjoyed the movie. It's the first time in a long time I've lived into a movie so much. The movie may have been 3 hours long, but that is actually the best part, Peter Jackson have made sure to bring out ever bit of detail possible, that once you start to watch the movie, that 3 hours is going to go by so fast.
Maybe one day when I watch the movie again, I'll rewrite my review :)
I’ll give the movie a 8 out of 10.

People who have seen this movie, generally fall into two catergoires. EIther you'll like it or you'll hate it. My guess is from the numbers you see above this review you know where I stand, but needless to say my brother would probably give this movie a 4 out of 10. Some of his criticisms may be ture of the movie, but i feel he might have forgotten the true reason for a movie like this, It's pure entertainment. Perhaps the only criticism I myself can level against this movies is the labourious first act, which by all standards in movie making is quite long. When I saw it at the thearte I sought of got bored at points before the crew reaches Skull Island, but once you are on that Island everything takes on GIGANTIC PROPORTIONS and I do mean gigantic. Enjoy this movie, from then onwards, and to Peter Jackson, magnificant movie man, but you could have shortened the first act! MV out!
