5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome., 20 Feb 2006
This review is from: King Kong: 2 Disc Special Edition - Limited Edition Sculpturally Embossed Packaging (Exclusive to Amazon.co.uk) [DVD] (DVD)
Wow. Now that was one hell of a movie.
This edition looks cool; hats off to Amazon for it.
Let me be honest; I have never liked King Kong. I am not fond of monkeys, and the whole idea that a human girl could fall in love with a giant ape, is rather dubious; for me. One of my friends literally dragged me off to see this, and I gave in (grudgingly).
And I sat there, stunned, as the film began to flow like liquid silk. It was the most goddamn amazing thing I have seen in a while. It grabs hold of you, and adamantly refuses to let you go.
It has all the makings of a perfect masterpiece - romance, horror, action.. (those giant leeches made me want to hurl, but apart from this minor glitch, it was utterly mesmerising). Add to this an impeccable cast, a beautifully mysterious location, a haunting musical-score, and that was it; it took my breath away. An emotional roller-coaster; this film is very, very dark. And at times, downright disturbing. But then, that's why I like it so much. Peter Jackson is a genius.
The only criticism I can make of this film, is that it was, admittedly, a bit too long. Patience is one of my virtues, and the time did not bother me particularly. But during the quiet bits, I could feel the growing restlessness of the crowd around me.
This movie contains a lot of moral messages; I think everyone should see it. I could write loads about this film, but, I am not going to.
See it, you would be crazy if you willingly threw away this opportunity.
