Introduction

Analyse the Final Empire State Scene and Death of Kong in 'King Kong'. Compare the 1933 Version directed by Merian Cooper and the 2005 version directed by Peter Jackson and the Effect it would have on the Contemporary Audience. There have been several versions of the film 'King Kong' although I will be comparing the 1933 version directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack and the 2005 version directed by the famous director Peter Robert Jackson who directed The Lord of the Rings trilogy. He is the winner of three Academy Awards. The special effects and camera techniques used in the two versions of 'King Kong' are very different because of the lack of technology being available in 1933 compared to 2005. ...read more.

Middle

In the 1933 version the relationship between Ann Darrow and Kong is very different to the 2005 version. Merian C. Cooper tried to make Kong seem like a violent and destructive creature whereas Peter Jackson focused on the relationship between Ann and Kong. Ann Darrow is afraid of Kong in the 1993 version and in the 2005 version she clearly has a strong relationship with him. This is shown strongest in the final Empire State scene where she is afraid of Kong getting killed, Ann shows a lot of emotion for Kong when he dies. The audience to the 1933 version was amazed by Kong because the film was one of the first to feature stop motion even though the quality of the film and the special effects was very poor compared to films from the 20th century, Kong was a scary creature and made the audience fear him. ...read more.

Conclusion

The 2005 version was rated 12a which means that people aged 12 and upwards can watch it however people under the age of 12 can watch it with an adult, this is because the film contains violent scenes and might scare younger audience. The 1933 version was more of a horror film so it was rated 15. In conclusion the two films were very similar with the same narrative and characters; they both share the same story and scenes. The only main difference between the two films is that Peter Jackson focused on the relationship between Ann Darrow and King Kong, and the 1933 version Kong was set to be a monster and there is clearly a relationship between Ann Darrow and Jack Driscoll instead of Ann and Kong. ...read more.
