King Kong

 (2005)

King Kong Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Flamboyant, foolhardy documentary filmmaker, Carl Denham, sails off to remote Skull Island to film his latest epic with leading lady, Ann Darrow. Native warriors kidnap Ann to use as a sacrifice as they summon "Kong" with the local witch doctor. But instead of devouring Ann, Kong saves her. Kong is eventually taken back to New York where he searches high and low for Ann, eventually winding up at the top of the Empire State Building, facing off against a fleet of World War I fighter planes.

For more about King Kong and the King Kong Blu-ray release, see King Kong Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Brody, Thomas Kretschmann, Colin Hanks, Andy Serkis

King Kong Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

King Kong finally makes its way to Blu-ray featuring a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in the film's original aspect ratio of 2.35:1. Fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as the transfer is phenomenal. The film features a rich color palette that is both vibrant and slick during the film's New York scenes, while retaining a nice earthy tone during scenes taking place on Skull Island. The entire film displays a wonderful sense of depth that often will often leave viewers slackjawed in amazement. The film is a true sight to behold on Blu-ray and easily ranks among the best transfers the format has seen.

Contrast is exceptionally rendered with deep and accurate black levels and whites that never bloom. Detail is also extraordinary; the film just overflows with skin, fabric and landscape textures that add tremendous weight to this exemplary transfer. I was equally impressed with the lifelike nature of the image. The whole film just feels alive. King Kong has been an eagerly anticipated title on Blu- ray. It's gratifying to see Universal bestow such a phenomenal transfer on the film. King Kong is a reference quality transfer that will be used as demo material for years to come. Highly recommended!


King Kong Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Given that King Kong was an Academy Award winning film in the sound department, anything less than a stellar soundtrack would be a disappointment with this Blu-ray release. Fear not, however, as King Kong is a purely reference grade sound experience. Presented in lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround, the film is an aural delight that will astound listeners with an abundance of directional, ambient and subwoofer effects. It's a remarkable achievement that highlights the work of the many talented professionals who helped to create it.

King Kong is a "brute-force" soundtrack. Every action scene bristles with gut- punching bass and directional activity that combines to create a hard-hitting and window- shattering experience. Every punch, roar, broken tree and piece of ripped flesh in the film is as crystal clear and obvious as each spoken line. This soundtrack manages to balance the two elements into a truly flawless experience that is sure to wake the neighbors and set off a civil defense warning. Prepare to be amazed in just how perfect this film sounds. King Kong is as good as it gets in the audio department and is highly recommended.
