The eighth wonder of the world.

It is 1933, and vaudeville actress Ann Darrow (Oscar nominee Naomi Watts) has found herself - like so many other New Yorkers during the Great Depression - without the means to earn a living. Unwilling to compromise and allow herself to sink into a career in burlesque, she considers her limited options while aimlessly wandering the streets of Manhattan. When her hunger drives her to unsuccessfully try to steal an apple from a fruit vendor's stall, she is rescued - literally - by filmmaker and multiple hyphenate Carl Denham (Jack Black).

It seems that the entrepreneur-raconteur-adventurer is no stranger to theft, having that day lifted the only existing print of his most recent and unfinished film from under his studio executives' noses when they threatened to pull his completion funds. Carl has until the end of the day to get his crew onboard the Singapore-bound tramp steamer, the S.S. Venture, in hopes of completing his travelogue/action film. With that, the showman is certain he will finally achieve the personal greatness he knows awaits him around the corner - and although the crew believe that corner to be Singapore, Denham actually hopes to find and capture on film the mysterious place of legend: Skull Island.

Unfortunately for Carl, his headlining actress has pulled out of his project, but his search for a size-four leading lady (the costumes have all been made) has, fatefully, led him to Ann. The struggling actress is reluctant to sign on with Denham, until she learns that the up-and-coming, socially relevant playwright Jack Driscoll (Oscar winner Adrien Brody) is penning the screenplay - the fees his friend Carl pays for potboiling adventure are a welcome supplement to Driscoll's nominal income from his stage plays.

With his newly discovered star and coerced screenwriter reluctantly onboard, Denham's 'moving picture ship' heads out of New York Harbor... and toward a destiny that none aboard could possibly foresee...

 Fantastic Package

Ok everyone has seen this so I will skip the movie review.

Having gotten this in from the US I can confirm that the picture transfer and soundtrack for this release are sensational and are demo worthy for anyone looking to show off their HDTV to friends.

Every hair on Kongs face can be seen and his roar and dino stampede will shake the walls of your house. The only drawback with the perfect picture is that some of the not so good CGI is more obvious but that is always going to be the way in HD.

While I was impressed myself with the DVD version is the only way King Kong should be seen, its definately time to throw away the DVD now and upgrade.

 Good Stuff, Epic films are back!

Love this film, but it is a long run time. It would be possible to skip 30 minutes in and still feel like you have watched a complete film. Not that I would suggest you really do this, Kong is so well animated it is possible to forget that he is really CGI. Good epic film that does the first Fay Ray film justice

This 2005 version has all the benefits of computer enhanced imagery, and is a remake of the famous '1933' 'fay wray' classic, of course there have been a few other attempts in-between.
I did see this one in the cinema when released and bought on 'dvd' as and when.
This 'blu-ray' version has both the theatrical and extended version on board, the latter being around fifteen fun filled minutes longer.
Many scene sequences were extended and did in my opinion add to the spectacle which is 'king kong'
The story we by now know so well, a film crew and actor's along with the ships compliment stumble upon an un-chartered island where they find trible inhabitance living behind a giant wall, beyond
Which are creatures from a by-gone age.....and of course....'kong'
Cruelly they eventually capture the giant to display back home for finantial gain.
It's a great spectacle with amazing c.g.i. Age old story line which tells of love and greed..........'beauty and the beast'....great blu-ray title. ( A must buy if you have this format available )

 Great movie but some truly vile bits

This movie looks and soounds great but the natives are trult revolting as are the giant insects - i genuinely can't stand to look at some parts of the film. As to subtitles - play has got pretty lazy in the descriptions department and prices aren't as competetive as they used to be and postage times are rubbish too. Get it cheaper elsewhere.
