"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..."

The result is a movie whose images and implications are likely to stay in your head for a long time."New York Times "[I]ntriguing....EASTERN PROMISES unpeels like an onion of corruption, with double crosses and deceptions, and ordinary do-gooders in way over their heads.

The violence in EASTERN PROMISES is at times breathtakingly brutal..."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "The excellent Mortensen is utterly mesmeric....A darkly unforgettable crime thriller..."Ultimate DVD "Expertly realized and gummetal slick, EASTERN PROMISES whirs along with perfect efficiency..."Los Angeles Times Ranked #4 in Rolling Stone's "10 Best Movies Of 2007" -- "[A] brutally mesmeric tale of the Russian mob in London."Rolling Stone "David Cronenberg's harsh but powerful film conjures up a violent world of bottomless evil, yet holds out, through Anna and Ms. Watts's lovely performance, the possibility of doing good."Wall Street Journal25.18116

"[The film] captures liberal-left despair with astonishingly good humor..."New York Times "[E]xuberant and often poignant....Schwartzman and Law are pitch-perfect in their roles..."Los Angeles Times "[W]hat emerges is part screwball comedy, absurdist farce, social satire and earnest self-exploration....Director Robert Zemeckis' feature debut truly encapsulates that time."USA Today "[With] imaginatively conceived and executed special effects....By far the most original comedy of the year."
