Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 09/08/2005
"Jackson worked fresh magic at his Weta studios in his native New Zealand, where he had Kong do battle with prehistoric predators on Skull Island..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/16/2005
"[T]he movie seals Jackson's reputation: He's the most gifted big-picture artist working today....What resonates is the story, which is a very human tale of compassion, greed, loss, bravery, creativity, foolishness, and love." -- Grade: A
New York Times - 12/14/2005
"[Jackson] succeeds through a combination of modesty and reckless glee, topping himself at every turn and reveling in his own showmanship."
USA Today - 12/13/2005
"Jackson is a visionary filmmaker who is not only a technical wizard but also a master storyteller."
Los Angeles Times - 12/12/2005
"[A] witty comment on the darkness at the heart of adventure stories, a bazillion-dollar spectacle that reserves the right to question the morality of spectacles, and, mostly, a tender love story about a melancholy girl and her tragically misunderstood monkey."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/30/2005
Included in Entertainment Weekly's Top Ten Films Of The Year -- "[I]t has a marvelous fairy-tale kinetic grandeur....KING KONG attains a primal-pop romantic glory..."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2006
"Once in the lost world, Jackson reproduces the breathless pacing of the 1933 film, tipping from one huge set-piece to the next..."
Uncut - 05/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's made with love, care, and tremendous intelligence….This is still a moving love story at heart..."
Widescreen Review - 06/01/2006
"[The] picture does a great job of creating the period of the storytelling....The fantastic mix is energetic and invigorating."
