King Kong (2005)


Fresh off the heels of the Lord of the Ring’s Trilogy Peter Jackson remakes a movie classic of the famous giant gorilla. Similar to his LotR films ‘King Kong’ is equal in feature length of about 3 hours. Kong falls short of expectations. The movie has it’s moments, but fails to delivery consistant quality story-telling. Probably due to the a horrible cast and lack of character development. The only thing going for this movie is the special effects of Kong and the fight scenes with the dinosaurs. Naomi Watts plays, Ann Darrow, a down and out actress who is convinced by the director, played by Jack Black, to travel to an exotic location to shoot a film where they land on Skull Island and find Kong. Even with big star actors and actress there are scenes where it was just simply corny. Maybe if this movie was released about 5 years earlier it would have done much better.

Rating: ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
