Set in New York, 1933, when the economy was declining and life was tough, the movie tells a story of an actress named Ann Darrow who found herself jobless and ended up on a sea voyage with an ambitious and selfish movie director, Carl Denham, to an uncharted island where monstrous creatures actually existed. On the island, Ann was captured by native people and made her a sacrifice to the "King" of monsters which was no other than a 25 feet tall giant gorilla named "Kong." The beauty and the beast shared compassion and fate brought them back in New York. Ultimately, what would become of "King Kong"?
Everyone knows "King Kong." The original movie dated back in 1933 and the remake in 1976 told this wonderful adventure story to millions of audiences for generations. Peter Jackson was one of those kids who got inspired by the original movie and decided that one day he would become a movie director and direct a movie like "King Kong". Now, his dream has finally come true. With the tremendous success of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, Peter Jackson is one of the most anticipated director of a new millennium. He certainly did an excellent job in directing and producing the remake of "King Kong," along with his co-scriptwriters from "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens. With a wonderful computer graphic generating technology, Andy Serkis delivered a fine performance as "King Kong" in the same way that he used to perfectly portray "Gollum" in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Naomi Watts is gorgeous as a beautiful Ann Darrow. The other wonderful cast included an award-winning actor Adrien Brody and a veteran actor Jack Black.
All in all, the movie could live up with high expectation. Even though the first part of the movie was somewhat too long and boring, when the action was started, there would be no turning back and you would definitely enjoy both action and dramatic part of the movie till the end. The visual effect is eye-popping and excellent. "King Kong" is truly the eighth wonder of the world.
5 Stars out of 5, highly recommend to all.
