Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) is an actress who finds herself out of a job in Depression-era New York. Her luck changes when she meets Carl Denham (Jack Black), an entrepreneur, adventurer and filmmaker, who is struggling to make a name for himself. Adrien Brody plays Jack Driscoll, a New York playwright, who becomes an unlikely hero in a romantic adventure story that is set to test his physical courage and heart. Denham and his film crew, sail to the remote Skull Island to film his latest epic. The natives kidnap Ann and plan to use her as a sacrifice to the island's giant gorrila named King Kong.

Critics' reviews
  • "Peter Jackson's remake is as much a tribute to the old, seat-of-the-pants spirit of early motion pictures as it is an exercise in technological bravura."
  • It was so entertaining that I got an overdose of entertainment! But who cares? It is the latest picture from Peter Jackson, the director who received Oscars for ending "the Return of the King" six times. A remake of the classic 1933 film with sad eyes from the monkey and even sadder eyes from Adrien Brody. It is "King Too Long Kong".
