Let’s be honest.
If Peter Jackson did a shot-for-shot remake of that movie, it would be torn apart by critics as shallow.
Jackson and crew fleshed out Ann, fleshed out Denham and most importantly fleshed out Kong a character not just a big ape.
Naomi Watts was amazing. I am starting to believe that she doesn’t know how to bad in a movie.
Jack Black was okay as Carl Denham. It was hard to get past the fact that it was Jack Black but he sold Denham’s despicable nature.
The F/X on Kong were nothing short of amazing. There needs to be an award for motion capture work just so Andy Serkis can get the proper recognition.
It didn’t feel like a three hour movie but it could have been cut short.
