    4.0 out of 5 stars Review for 3 Disc Extended Edition November 14, 2006
    Format:DVD
    The biggest problem most people had with King Kong was its length, so there's no surprise that reaction by the general public to the release of an extended edition of another 3 hour-plus Peter Jackson film was almost the equivalent of a collective groan.

    The surprise is that everything added to the Extended Edition of King Kong should have never been cut. More dinosaurs and more creatures and more action on Skull Island only improves the film, and one wonders if these scenes were cut mostly for time and pacing, why wasn't a little bit of the 51 minutes of pre-Skull Island snipped or perhaps a few overly drawn scenes of Kong and Anna gazing into each other's eyes?

    The more noticable scenes are that of a rampaging Ceratops and a fun scene of an underwater monster attacking Adrien Brody and Co. while they are rafting down a river. A bit more character development with some seedy behavior by Carl Denham (Jack Black) and heroic deeds by Jack Driscoll and the shipmates add a bit of flavor to the male characters literally overshadowed by Kong in the film. The spider pit sequence is also a bit lengthened with some more lines by Jack Black. Overall, a worthy 13 minutes of added material, but the film still feels too long in the last act.

    The special features to this extended edition are the special features that were missing from the first release of the Kong movie, including a commentary from Peter Jackson and extensive behind the scenes features, describing the making of Kong from concept artwork to the screen a la the performance of Andy Serkis.

    I enjoyed the extended cut, but I don't know that this lengthy movie is better served with added material. It's not like the LOTR films where the additions enhance your viewing and understanding of Tolkien's world. But hey, I am not going to complain about more dinosaurs and the raft sequence I was disappointed was missing from the original cut.

    4.0 out of 5 stars tHE eXtra that make the difference.... August 3, 2006
    By DA MAN
    Format:DVD
    Hello People,

    well Peter Jackson's Opus, King Kong now comes in it's extended version only on DVD... This review basically gives you a guide as to what you might expect from the DVD release.. I have no breakdown of what scenes are make up the extra minutes, but from Perter Jackson's comments and Comic Con presentation, there have been indications of what might be make up the running time...

    The dVd details -

    Firstly this dvd presentation is brought to you in 3 discs. An additon of thirteen(13) minutes of footage has been added to the extended version of the film.

    Extra scenes include :

    * King Kong's capture at Skull Island and journey to New York.

    * A river scene; where our heros are stuck on a log/raft, and

    them being attacked by a large aligator. (Comic Con info)

    More to be added soon...

    5.0 out of 5 stars A movie that beats on it's chest and roars! January 16, 2006
    I was one of those people who thought King Kong was a mistake for director Peter Jackson. Fresh from his monumental success and Academy Awards with his work on The Lord of the Rings, I wasn't confident that he would make an equally, much less surpassively, good film. I was proven wrong.

    Running at a horrendously intimidating 187 minutes, I had my fears that there would be parts where cinematographic drags would consume my interest in the film, especially since there were several such moments in Fellowship of the Ring which Jackson also directed. However, I was pleased to find that dragging moments were limited and the whopping runtime was put to good use... so take care of your bladders prior to watching.

    I have heard many complaints regarding the first third of the film which takes place in depression-era New York city. It is in this third where the titular beast is nowhere to be seen, but we are introduced to all the other main characters. I have argued many times that a film is not without it's characters and so far in his blockbuster career, Peter Jackson has not disappointed in characterization. It keeps the audience in the hearts and minds of everything that happens onscreen and therefore maintains an engaging atmosphere. All in all, you care about all the fuss and you watch and wait, with interest, for the next scene to unfold. Therefore, in spite of the gargantuan runtime, I was riveted to the screen.

    Carl Denham (Jack Black... yes, Jack Black) is a struggling filmmaker whose career has been so far almost successful. When he learns his latest film is about to be scrapped, he escapes with his film and crew to continue production.

    very long movie and takes a long time to develop but once it does it keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'd give it an extra 1/2 star if I could but not quite 4 stars (B+)

    The BR is great since it includes both versions of the movie and the audio and video quality is EXCELLENT.

    HOWEVER, as for extras it only includes a commentary track by Jackson and writer Phillipa Boyens (spelling?) which was pretty cool (I heard it last night) but NONE of the documentary... Read More

    from what i know, its only the 1st batch of releases that come with the slipcover, once they get sold out...they are sold as it is.

    and if you find them in stores...well thats just luck.

    Jackson isn't double dipping here people.
    Overall the point is all the film companies are screwing everyone with these multiple releases.. the only way to get the best release is to refuse the purchase of any new DVD release for 6 months to a year after release until the "final" release is out..
