Behind the scenes documentary about the making of Peter Jackson's epic new version of 'King Kong' (2005). Jackson himself takes fans through the gruelling production process and the months of work that went into the making of his film, from the construction of epic sets, to the previsualisation process, casting, location shooting, concept art, and the groundbreaking special effects that bring King Kong to life.

I can't thank Peter Jackson enough for letting us look into his way of filmmaking.
But I'm not knocking the actual documentary, which runs for well over 3 and a half hours. For anyone who is interested in how they make a modern day blockbuster, then this is it. Even if you don't like King Kong, or have no intention of seeing the film, if you are interested in how to make a movie, then this is indispensible.
It covers every aspect - from lighting and camera techniques to catering, make up and conceptual art. It gives a chance to see what people on a film set do - and not just the actors and directors, but everuybody right down to the person who makes the tea.
And it is done in a fast paced, humorous way. Not once did I get bored watching these production diaries, and for fans of the film, its great to see the actors filming their scenes, and messing around behind the scenes. Jack Black and Andy Serkis especially are very funny to watch.
However, I felt short changed in the fact that there isn't much from the actul finished film. OK, they couldn't have put completed film shots in the production diaries as they were filmed during the making of the film, but this DVD has come out after the film is virtually finished. Couldn't the DVD of had some bonus film footage?
The best part of the DVD is the anatomy of a scene section, where Peter Jackson talks us through one of the main action scenes in the film - and we even get to see a portion of that scene, which is fantastic and so more of that would have been great.
While this DVD is fun, interesting and very informative (thanks to continual input from Peter Jackson) it didn't whet my appetite to see the film. But I do feel like I know what it was like to make the film behind the scenes.
These diaries have run alongside production of his latest feature 'King Kong' on website KongisKing.net - allowing anyone interested in any aspect of the filmaking process to see how it's done, with inspirational, educational and often downright funny episodic entries. Now this DVD will be the only place to see them.....
Wrong! This is basically special feature overkill, and it gets very dull very fast. Perhaps only the hardest of die-hard movie "behind-the-scenes" fanatics should buy this. For the rest of us, it's just way too much.
And, what's worse, we're betrayed by the lack of actual King Kong stuff! No CGI scenes, in fact hardly any ape at all.
