I’m pretty sure some of these subplots could have been streamlined or eliminated. I’m looking at you, 30+ minute uninterrupted fight scene between King Kong and the dinosaurs.
With great numbers of actors comes great responsibility to give them all something to do, hence the problems in the Plot section.
I love that they chose to have this set in the 1930s like the original.
Why, yes, that is all I’m choosing to write about in this section. Thanks for asking!
Kind of a strange score here. There was both an insert in the DVD case about the Volkswagen Touareg being the “official vehicle of King Kong”, as well as a commercial for it in the main DVD menu.
It was length killed the rewatchability of King Kong…and I didn’t even watch the Directors Cut or Extended Edition or anything. This was one of the first movies I saw by myself in the theater, though, so I knew what I was getting into this time.
