Worth a watch. I could've done with shorter creepy crawler scenes and the movie is wayyyy too long but pretty good. Naomi Watts is excellent in it :)
The original is still the best, but this one is a good movie, that would've been better if they took off some 30 minutes from the Skull Island endless action sequences.
And no Carl, it wasn't beauty that killed the beast, it was you, you arrogant f*cker!
The film is a love letter to the original Kong and really made me want to see the original in its entirety more than anything. The movie is really three little films. I liked the mysterious boat ride a heck of a lot, and the last part, Kong's inevitable death, is touching even as an animatic. The middle part, however, is just one monster race/fight after another, and the extended edition simply adds an extra half hour of monster races and fights. Dull.
