The eighth wonder of the world.
In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to mysterious Skull Island, where they encounter Kong, a giant ape who is immediately smitten with leading lady Ann Darrow.

The skull island scenes are fantastic... Skin crawling insect scenes. It's a tedious journey to get there though!

The action is fantastic; as is the CGI. While Naomi Watts is strong in the role of Ann Darrow. I just don't like the same ending as the original. Or the beauty killed the beast line. Carl Denham (Jack Black) should have died just for saying that. He took Kong off the island to begin with.

Gorgeous views of "Skull Island" and it's inhabitants as well as a lot of action make this Jackson flick worth watching. But I think the cast of Jack Black as Denham was not a very good choice!

It's no Lord of the Rings, but enjoyable.
