Review
The eighth wonder of the world!

Thirteen additional minutes of epic adventure, exotic creatures and awesome special effects make the King Kong: Deluxe Extended Edition the definitive version of Peter Jackson's must-see, must-have action adventure epic. Exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpses of Jackson and his crew give fans an unprecedented window into the sweeping cinematic vision that makes the King Kong: Deluxe Extended Edition a spectacular film experience that movie lovers will not want to miss!

It is 1933, and vaudeville actress Ann Darrow (Oscar nominee Naomi Watts) has found herself - like so many other New Yorkers during the Great Depression - without the means to earn a living. Unwilling to compromise and allow herself to sink into a career in burlesque, she considers her limited options while aimlessly wandering the streets of Manhattan. When her hunger drives her to unsuccessfully try to steal an apple from a fruit vendor's stall, she is rescued - literally - by filmmaker and multiple hyphenate Carl Denham (Jack Black).

It seems that the entrepreneur-raconteur-adventurer is no stranger to theft, having that day lifted the only existing print of his most recent and unfinished film from under his studio executives' noses when they threatened to pull his completion funds. Carl has until the end of the day to get his crew onboard the Singapore-bound tramp steamer, the S.S. Venture, in hopes of completing his travelogue/action film. With that, the showman is certain he will finally achieve the personal greatness he knows awaits him around the corner - and although the crew believe that corner to be Singapore, Denham actually hopes to find and capture on film the mysterious place of legend: Skull Island.

Unfortunately for Carl, his headlining actress has pulled out of his project, but his search for a size-four leading lady (the costumes have all been made) has, fatefully, led him to Ann. The struggling actress is reluctant to sign on with Denham, until she learns that the up-and-coming, socially relevant playwright Jack Driscoll (Oscar winner Adrien Brody) is penning the screenplay - the fees his friend Carl pays for potboiling adventure are a welcome supplement to Driscoll's nominal income from his stage plays.

With his newly discovered star and coerced screenwriter reluctantly onboard, Denham's 'moving picture ship' heads out of New York Harbor... and toward a destiny that none aboard could possibly foresee...

Good deal though

I'd agree but I'm still curiously drawn to the extended version.

Agreed it took a while to get going, but once it did it was a brilliant film. Me and the missus watched it again on Sunday. She poops her self at the bit with the giant spiders.

For those curious as to what this edition adds: http://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=3550

People who think the opening section before they get to island is to long will be glad to know that this exteneded edition does not add anything more to these scenes.

Well that's good news because that whole section is so needlessly drawn out. I think in the original, Kong appears at the 20 minute mark. In the Jackson version it's about 1hr and 10mins.

I have this on HD-DVD and the difference in picture quality between the two is huge.
This is one of the movies you would want to watch on a TV in 1080p resolution! :thumbsup:

I bought this last time it was £5, it was the best fiver I ever spent. There's oly about 15 minutes of extra footage but there's also deleted scenes, hours of documentaries and an audio commentary which the 2-disc version lacked.

Been after buying this film when I bumped into this... perfect timing! Thanks :)
#10
:thumbsup: Great deal heat added , Since the movie cost only $207 million to make how could I refuse to buy it for a fiver :whistling:
#11
If you look out you might still be able to pick up this HMV exclusive (in store only). I got one a few months back for the incredible price of £5.00. I already had the movie but I wanted the WETA Workshop statuette. It's worth asking in your local HMV just in case they have any left 'in the back'.
