Thank you for a good Block Buster movie! King Kong is a classic that never seems to retire from Hollywood. I think only movie buffs, though, have seen most of the older generation iterations. I wonder how many have seen the Jack Black Kong? (Or, how many remember it?)
It is refreshing to have a few non-American characters, and I like the angle they approach this interpretation. Military backing, and an island that has been hidden by the storms. This movie also follows a few characters, not just sticking to a heroine for the majority of the movie.
I do appreciate that the lone female is not an actress but instead a photographer. I don’t appreciate that she doesn’t have her hair pulled back.
Yes, let the military guys blow stuff up.
I do enjoy the two intros that King Kong gets.
Thank you for intelligent characters! The motivations and actions are clear and realistic. I would not have chosen all of those actions, but I understand the thought behind them.
Could be my favorite interpretation of King Kong yet.
That being said, some of the creatures are a bit ridiculous. And they made 1 stupid choice. It is a Hollywood movie.
Still have the kid character that the experienced outdoors-man views as his buddy.
And what a tracker! thank you for giving us characters with depth, again. (And Tom Hiddleston in this role.)
Samuel Jackson got the bad role again…
Good movie – all of the actors did wonderful, particularly Mr. Hiddleston. Definitely a movie I will be watching over and over agian!
