King Kong (2005)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
12.14.05

King Kong (2005) From Carl Denham dodging his angry producers in New York City to the discovery of Skull Island and the sacrifice and rescue of Ann Darrow from Kong, this three hour movie has not a slow spot in it. Everything from the 1933 movie is expanded upon, with more character development of Ann and Jack Driscoll, more dinosaurs on the island. There's a herd of brontosaurs, Kong battles three Tyrannosaurs, and rather than one Pteranodon attacking him at his cliffside abode, there's a swarm of these horrible looking bat creatures. Kong is portrayed as much more ferocious-and a reason is supplied. Strewn among his home are the skeletons of all the other giant gorillas that have been killed by the island. He is the last one of his kind and it's a daily battle for survival, as attested by all the scars over his body. In Ann Darrow he finds a positive connection to another creature, though it's ultimately his downfall. The end fight atop the Empire State building is amazing, both visually and dramatically.As far as casting, Naomi Watts gives another superb performance. Even Jack Black, not exactly my favorite actor, is perfect as Carl Denham. I had my doubts about Adrian Brody as a 're-imagined' Jack Driscoll, yet it works having him be the Denham's script writer turned hero. Peter Jackson's KING KONG not only surpasses the original, it's one of the best films I've ever seen.
