Product Description

Experience King Kong as never before in this exclusive 2-Disc Special Edition! See the larger-than-life film, plus, watch three-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson take you behind the scenes of this epic adventure. Thrilling, in-depth featurettes reveal the genius behind the creation of this timeless story.

Additional Features

At least one part of the extras on the two-disc King Kong DVD is as gargantuan as the movie: the voluminous post-production diaries, which document in loving detail the process of putting together Peter Jackson's epic after principal photography. More or less serving as the final chapter to the previously released King Kong - Peter Jackson's Production Diaries, the post-production diaries includes everything you'd want to know about the post-production process, from sound mixing to editing to computer effects to cutting the trailer to.... It's three hours of pure Kong pleasure for hard-core fans; for everyone else, it might be a bit of a long haul. Fortunately, you can skip around depending on your interest, if you just want to know about the scoring of the movie, or get a feel for what it's like to be an extra on the steamship Venture (it involves a lot of waiting). Everyone, however, should make a stop whenever they see Andy Serkis -- in addition to being one of the most personable presences in these diaries, originally created for fansite Kong Is King, the sequences devoted to the computer re-creation of Kong himself are the most fascinating, with one technician stating it was harder to create Kong than Gollum (you'll have to have back-to-back screenings of this and the Lord of the Rings extras to decide for yourself). Through it all, Jackson is an amiable host, and you get the feeling despite the ton of work, it's actually fun to work for this guy. The rest of the extras, though, will leave you definitely wondering: is that all there is? Skip past the commercial for the Volkswagen Touareg, and make a stop at "Kong's New York" only if you need a remedial history of the city circa 1933. A bit of fun is had, though, with "Skull Island: A Natural History," which gives a great backstory to the creatures of the legendary island, and is filmed as a true-story documentary of the kind you might see on The History Channel -- hardcore Jackson fans will recognize the sly approach used in the director's hidden gem Forgotten Silver. Still, you can't help but wonder if there's yet another extras-laden DVD down the road, which even Jackson himself hints at. For now, though, this DVD gives you enough to chew on until that (hopefully) appears. --Mark Englehart

    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.

    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.
