CAUTION SPOILERS AHEAD…
The movie, Kong is clearly different from the 1933, 1976 and 2005 King Kong. It is about an abnormally large gorilla that watches over the jungle where he lives, protecting the lives that inhabit Skull Island.
The difference in these movies besides different actors, is that in the new, 2017 version Kong is the size or bigger of a skyscraper which is about 500 times larger than a normal gorilla. In the previous(2005) King Kong, Kong was only about 15 times bigger than a normal gorilla so there is an extremely clear size difference. There are also some different creatures. For example, they had dinosaurs in King Kong, and skull crawlers in Kong.
One of the main differences is that in King Kong 2005, Kong dies. In the new Kong though, the even larger gorilla lives on to protect the island and its creatures, as well as the natives living there.
All around, the movie was full of explosions, fighting, and creepy creatures that can only be found in your nightmares.Let’s not forget Samuel L. Jackson, who of course, is important. The movie is perfect for thrill seekers and action lovers. This is one movie that will not disappoint when you are looking for a big gorilla kicking some butt. So go on down and watch the new Kong movie!
