"Gollum is back in all his scrofulous glory, and several set pieces fill the screen with a wealth of detail that would have left Tolkien reeling in astonishment."Wall Street Journal "At its best, it recaptures the RINGS movies breadth, detail, and staggering sense of beauty. Jackson retains the sense of an entire world created on a vast scope for a film."A.V. Club "Freemans the all-too-human face of Jacksons gargantuan vision, his performance indicating that the emotional stakes will keep pace with the ramped-up challenges ahead..."Total Film Its a far more humorous fantasy than RINGS, seeing absurdity in grandeur and vice versa.Sight and Sound0.3604718

"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..." Rolling Stone "[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 Entertainment Weekly "[Jackson] succeeds through a combination of modesty and reckless glee, topping himself at every turn and reveling in his own showmanship." New York Times "Jackson is a visionary filmmaker who is not only a technical wizard but also a master storyteller."USA Today "[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."Los Angeles Times 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..." Entertainment Weekly "Once in the lost world, Jackson reproduces the breathless pacing of the 1933 film, tipping from one huge set-piece to the next..." Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's made with love, care, and tremendous intelligence.This is still a moving love story at heart..." Uncut "[The] picture does a great job of creating the period of the storytelling....The fantastic mix is energetic and invigorating." Widescreen Review0.1802359
