Goofs

The main camera used by the photographer is a Leica M3. In some scenes you see a black version but in most of the scenes you see a brown one. This later version was not a standard camera, black was the only colour available at that time. Also, in one scene (in the village with the native people), a shoot is flipped, you see Mrs Larson is cranking the camera from the left side. See more »

Extraordinary...
13 March 2017 | by voduchieu-76154See all my reviews

I have seen this movie yesterday. That is an extremely interesting movie. Firstly, the content is great, it teaches us to respect the nature and finally Kong is always the greatest king. Secondary, the effects are so amazing, each small detail is so real. Thirdly, the landscape is very beautiful, I know that this movie is captured in Vietnam, my beloved country, and I am so proud of that. Finally, this is a movie that we can't miss.
