Peter Jackson is one of few directors who can make you care about a CGI-generated character, and an ape to boot as well!
If you want to know how highly I regard King Kong, for me it is like taking the Indiana Jones trilogy, add in Jurassic Park, along with some romance and multiply that by a gazillion!
King Kong has the best dinosaur action scene EVER! Yep! EVER!
So go and watch it!!
