“King Kong is a magnificent entertainment. It is like the flowering of all the possibilities in 3 the original classic film. Computers are used not merely to create special effects, but also to create style and beauty, to find a look for the film that fits its story. And the characters are not cardboard heroes or villains seen in stark outline, but quirky individuals with personalities.”www.RogerEbert.com
