    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Definitely a film that makes you think. Cinematography among the best I've ever seen, but at the same time I think that most of the scenes lingered too long.

    King Kong is so uncharacteristically bloody and violent in comparison to any other film I've seen from this era! So much death, carnage, and ripping apart the jaws of your enemies! The acting isn't bad and though the pacing stalls around the hour mark, the last forty minutes of the film more than make up for any issues the earlier part of the film had. Obviously the stop motion is genius and the special effects have had a lasting effect…
