King Kong is an amazing tribute to the 1933 original. Peter Jackson proves again why he is one of the elite directors, producers, and writers in Hollywood. He gets so much from Jack Black, Adrien Brody, and Naomi Watts. Most importantly the original animators could only dream of having a Kong this lifelike. You easily forget it is actually Andy Serkis running around the soundstage. The CGI and special effects are flawless, even though some may disagree about a certain canyon run scene.
Kong 's last stand is reason enough to watch this movie.
