  • King Kong [2005]
    Oscar David Huckle

    A 2hr59mins movie brings you victory. All the hard work that Peter Jackson has done brings a 5 star rating movie.

    I watched this movie in the cinemas because of the lord of the rings and of Peter Jackson's directing.

    Adrien Brody, Jamie Bell, Thomas Kretschmann, Andy Serkis and Kyle Chandler were so good with their acting. Colin Hanks was dreadful.

    Basicilly, the movie is all about the actual ape Kong. Carl Denham (Jack Black) asks Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) to come with him and his friends, Jack Driscoll (Adrien brody, Lumpy (Andy Serkis), Bruce Baxter and (Kyle Chandler)Preston (Colin Hanks)Once they discover Skull Island, an island with prehistoric creautures. King Kong, an ape gets Ann and the job is to rescue her. Carl Denham is money-orriantated and kidnaps Kong to take back to New York and become a millionaire along with his mates.

    Watch this movie as quick as you can as you will enjoy it all the way through.

    Watch it as soon as you can!Please! 10/10

  • King Kong [2005]

    I have watched this film over and over again. Even though it is 3 hours long,this film proves to be a big success and i would recommend it to ANYBODY. I must admit that the first hour of the film is slightly boring and could put people off the but the last 2 hours of the film are great with amazimg special effects.

    I have just simply rented this film so far, but it is my intention to buy the 2 disc version soon.
    In general terms I would really recommend this movie to any action adventure fans,or any other interested movie watcher, however I have only a few minor criticsims or points of inaccuracy in it are as follows;-
    1)The dinosaur action scenes verus King Kong are rather inaccurate,as the large and very heavy Sauropods could probably only manage at best 4 -5 mph, not the high speed stampede.
    T rex would have most likely have won the fight between King Kong and himself.After his first bite into Kong's arm which would have serverd it, causing major shock and blood loss, and thereafter death after a short time, wherein T rex would then devour King Kong at leisure.It is also believed that T rex had a very high sense of smell (2 miles or more), and most likely the ability to sprint short distances at over 20 mph, no contest!
    In my opinion the biplane flying sequences at the end of the movie are spoiled too. When the pilots and planes attack King Kong on top of The Empire State Building, the speed of the planes' flight has been speeded up too much in computer generated graphics for effect,sadly losing valuable realism to the closing scenes.
    Although the movie is a little long at around three hours it is overall a very good movie with great character buildup and depth, could well become regarded as a classic one day.

    I hope I have helped.

Epic remake of the adventure classic from acclaimed director Peter Jackson. In Depression-era New York, unscrupulous filmmaker Carl Denham (Jack Black) is desperate to find a leading lady for his new picture. After a chance encounter, naive actress Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) takes the role, and travels with Denham and sensitive scriptwriter Jack Driscoll (Adrien Brody) to the mysterious Skull Island, deep in the Indian Ocean. There the filmmakers discover a secret, savage civilisation that time forgot, and that worships a terrifying, gigantic ape called Kong (a motion-capture performance from Andy Serkis). When Ann is captured to be sacrificed to Kong, the ape becomes obsessed with her. Denham uses this obsession to help capture Kong and transport him back to New York, where he hopes he can make a fortune from exhibiting the creature. But after Kong escapes, the ape unleashes his awesome power against the city in an attempt to find Ann, the woman he truly loves, leading to a tragic conclusion atop the Empire State Building.
