This is the third film version of "King Kong". This latest version gives the tone of the current stage of the evolution of visual effects and sound, especially compared to the classic original tape from 1933, or even in relation to the failed 1976 version.The film, an extensive feature film with over 3 hours long, shows its opulence from the first scene, with environments totally rebuilt to accurately portray New York in the 30s. Not coincidentally, the director chosen to lead this "King Kong" is someone with extensive experience in mega-films (so-called "blockbusters"): Peter Jackson. He brought to the screen, among others, the trilogy "The Lord of the Rings", with modest budgets and no structures.The film tells the story of a crew that part of the ship to an unknown island to shoot a movie "naturalistic", even without support from executives, who fear it to be a box office flop.Profit more important than talent Almost as a rule, large productions bring us the most advanced in the effects, but do not depend almost entirely on the talents of actors. Good interpretations only "steal" time of the action scenes, and that the studio backer, the eternal pursuit of profit, can not accept. After all, the box office would be seriously affected.In this step, waste is mercilessly good actors, especially Adrien Brody (star of "The Pianist"). It is sad to see him reduced to a role monotonous, almost without words and full of incredible scenes leak.It takes both to make a feature more "subjective" the gorilla of 7 meters, with looks almost superhuman, but hardly sees scenes with clear creative director, his staff or even the actors. Scenes of wonder and surprise faces are repeated until exhaustion in a climate that assumes an audience simply forgotten the leitmotif of the film, ie, the discovery of a huge creature completely in an environment totally unknown. Now, you need more surprise than that? The director disagrees and for every new creature that appears there are the guys forced to unspeakable horror.Scenes forçadasTambém is difficult to explain the film's main relationship between the gorilla and her beloved blonde (played by Naomi Watts in "The Ring"). The gorilla shows up wild with everyone around him.
Even a tribe that still survives in this harsh environment, the beast has as to which should offer regular sacrifices for her to remain at peace.His strength is not only capable of killing people as if they were flies, but also to kill three Tyrannosaurus Rex! Another scene that draws an extremely unpalatable forced duel of titans: King Kong vs. Jurassic Park. There would be no surprise if this scene was conceived prior to the game King Kong, since the profit of the gaming industry has handily outperforms the profits of the film industry.Following this line of improbable, is not easy to swallow and accept the desperate cry of "beautiful" whenever the "beast" is threatened.Of course, on the other hand, imbecility human is not justified. Kong is captured after a string of killings and persecutions, and taken to New York to appear as "King Kong - The 8th Wonder of the World."With all the "high society" gathered to see the beast tamed, a question immediately arises: Who is the wildest in the end? The beast (animal) or beasts (the bourgeois)?Himself responsible for the capture of King Kong, the film's naturalistic (played by Jack Black in "High Fidelity") shamelessly says, "Let's give people a wonder of nature for the price of a ticket." Any resemblance to the entertainment industry capitalist is not coincidental.The cinematic quality of the film is due, solely, the two scenes between Beauty and the Beast. The first she, comedies and vaudeville dancer (operettas of humor), dance for him, and the second in which he, as in NY, returns with an impromptu dance on the ice in Central Park.In short, a weak film, full of special effects and situations designed to please the general public, without making him think of anything, just empty entertainment pure and simple.
