King Kong Reviews

Sure, many scenes in "King Kong" were exciting (e.g., LOVED the T-Rex sequence) and, yes, I even teared up a little a couple of times. And I must say, Kong himself was beautifully realized--he observed and acted like a REAL gorilla (albeit a tiny bit incarnated)! But I gotta tell you...I was more relieved than exhilarated when this movie ended. (If I saw one more flyover of the native village, I was gonna scream!) Peter...baby...why apply so much time emerging all these extraneous secondary characters if you don't really have much closure with them by the end. For example, the ship's head and Jimmy...once we leave Skull Island...pfffftttt...we never them again. Why all the backstory scenes about them? As with the original version, Jackson should have concentrated simply on the four main characters through: Kong, Ann, Driscoll and Denham. Period.
