King Kong Reviews

King Kong stays pretty true to the innovative. Naomi Watts plays Fay Wray's Ann Darrow perfectly. Right down to her emotional connection with Kong, which is helped by the fact that Kong is pretty darn lovable when he is not ripping apart relics?

Adrian Brody plays a great Jack Driscoll as well. Brody is truly a gifted actor and plays a good hero.

Even Jack Black did a good job as the stubborn director Carl Denham. Habitually I am annoyed by Black's performances, even though they are mostly in comedies. Surprisingly, Black kept his character serious and the movie is better for it. I thought for sure he would be the one to ruin this movie for me but, again, I stand modified. The comedy seemed to be reserved for Kong, himself, and did a wonderful job.
