Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Our response to the ape's doom, once touched by authentic tragedy, is now marked by relief that this wretchedly excessive movie is finally over.
Fresh: Good things do come in big packages. The trick for any filmmaker is to find the small movie within the big one, which is exactly what Peter Jackson does in King Kong.
Fresh: Kong is a showy, state-of-the-art popcorn movie, faithful to the spirit of the 1933 original but generously adrenalized with the best effects money can buy.
Fresh: One hundred eighty-seven minutes of mesmerization, astonishment, thrills, chills, spills, kills and ills, Peter Jackson's big monkey picture show is certainly the best popular entertainment of the year.
Wish These Extra Scenes Were In The Original Version!
Great movie and usually stuff that's cut out is for a good reason not these scenes they're awesome! More dinos and creatures and more kong!
A true King Kong Fan
Loved what Peter Jackson did with this remake of this film! Just like Mr. Jackson, I too was taken by the the 33' version and I had my first crush on Fay Wray! I hope that iTunes puts the the original King Kong on here!! I highly recommend this movie, if you like action, adventure, one sexy leading lady oh and a giant ape!!
