King Kong may be a great movie event in a "Jaws/Titanic" sense of blockbuster impact and cultural talking point, but it is not a great movie.
King Kong, a labor of love that's visually stunning and moving in its best moments, is also bloated, shallow, clunky, full of illogical scenes and at least an hour too long.

  HD DVD Review: King Kong (2005) | High-Def Digest
Kong always looks like a digital creation, and after countless, monotonous scenes of normally excellent actors running in front of blue screen, pretending they are being chased by monsters, I was completely taken out of the world Jackson hoped to immerse me in.
Note that 'King Kong' also bears a note of distinction for being the disc title Microsoft is packaging with its new HD DVD add-on drive for the Xbox 360.
In any case, 'King Kong' delivers on the bottom line, but it is far from the reference disc for all of HD DVD's toys that most have been expecting.

  King Kong - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
King Kong is the name of the fictional giant ape, from Skull Island, who has appeared in several works, most of which bear his name, including the groundbreaking 1933 film, the film remakes of 1976 and 2005, and numerous sequels and paraphernalia.
Kong, however, shares with other oversized movie creatures a problem of scaling; when a normal-sized animal is increased to gigantic proportions, its strength increases by the square of the scaling factor, but its mass by the cube.
Kong: King of Skull Island, an illustrated novel labeled as an authorized sequel to King Kong (1933), was published in 2004 by DH Press, a subsidiary of Dark Horse Comics.

 :: rogerebert.com :: Reviews :: King Kong (xhtml)
There are astonishments to behold in Peter Jackson's new "King Kong," but one sequence, relatively subdued, holds the key to the movie's success.
The scene is crucial because it removes the element of creepiness in the gorilla/girl relationship in the two earlier "Kongs" (1933 and 1976), creating a wordless bond that allows her to trust him.
As Kong ascends the skyscraper, Ann screams not because of the gorilla but because of the attacks on the gorilla by a society that assumes he must be destroyed.

 Peter Jackson's King Kong review for the XBOX360
Peter Jackson's King Kong also removes the burden of things like 'free-roaming terrain' and 'non-linearity' by patting you on the tush and sending you down one linear path.
Kong doesn't have many moves, really just a three-punch combo, a jump, a charge and the ability to go animal in a chest-pounding rage.
Kong levels are pretty short, mostly making you swing through linear levels while pounding on anything that moves, all while either gingerly carrying or carelessly chasing after Ann.

While such weighty Oscar contenders as Munich and Memoirs of a Geisha dutifully bow on multiplex screens, King Kong could be the right timeless tale to lift moviegoers out of their ongoing doldrums.
The wayward 1976 Kong remake with its contemporary settings, leaden eco-sensitivity and deadly disco-era dialogue (Jessica Lange jiggles defiantly and accuses the wondrous creature of being a "chauvinist pig ape") deflated his impact all the more.
