Posted in Movie Reviews on April 11, 2006 by coryangennet

Title: King Kong

Staring Actor(s)/Actress(es): Jack Black, Adrien Brody, Naomi Watts, Thomas Kretschmann, Colin Hanks, Andy Serkis

Genre: Action/Drama

Status: Out on DVD/Video

Plot Summary: Carl Denham (Black) is a movie producer and is taking a daring adventure, to an uncharted island. Hoping to film in a location never seen by civilized people, he finds much more adventure than he expected. He thinks he’s going to make it big but he discovers that it’s just a big, big problem.

Review: I had been waiting for a long time to see this but it, sadly, disappointed me. The story was great and the visuals were amazing. However, there were a few plot holes that I didn’t like. I wasn’t a big fan of how, after capturing Kong they don’t show you how they get him back to New York, which bothers me. Another bad one was, after Kong falls off of the Empire State Building, he makes no hole in the street or has any significant damage to his body. If anything fell from that high it would probably splatter pretty badly. I liked the movie a lot but I don’t think it was completely worth the 3 hours and 8 minutes of the day that it took up.
