"This was a random shelf selection at the Family video rental store. Never heard of it, nor the preceding film, nor the animated series. But after seeing this film, I will purchase them all for my family!
Kong: Return to the Jungle pours a lot of love and heart into an old, classic story, transforming it into a modern take with three-dimensional cartooning. Watching it is very much like playing a video game, especially the characters. And they are good characters: a guy who is Kong's "brother," his big pilot friend, a beautiful cavegirl and her Sabretooth, and the big cat's adorable cub, for whom Kong has a soft spot. Last but not least is the original Kong's love, now an elderly lady and geneticist.
But that's not all - the film also has some great songs about saving what we love and protecting freedom.
The only thing I was not able to suspend disbelief for was the so-called genetic "cyber-link," which somehow puts a guy "inside" Kong's mind using DNA. But that weak point is not enough to prevent enjoyment of the tremendous animation and direction."
