Disappointment (King Kong semi-spoilers)

December 19, 2005

If you have even the most rudimentary understanding of physics, human anatomy, or (most of all) of animal behaviour, you may find yourself annoyed at the island portion of King Kong. And the island portion is long. Admittedly, I’m worse than the average person at suspending disbelief, but this was just frustrating. The beginning of the movie is wonderful, though. And the end is padded and silly and way too long, but yeah, that was me crying in a bathroom stall post-credits. Less for Naomi Watts’s character and the Big Fake Ape than for the fact that humans treat other animals horribly. Hurts.
