The year is 1933.  Our story begins with a talented but as yet untrusted film director who is rapidly preparing to set sail with a hired crew.  Why is he going?  To shoot a film of course.  Where is he going?  He’s not telling.  Without a care for the irritations and suspicions that this secrecy arouses, he finds himself a down-on-her-luck actress willing to accompany him on his mad voyage to film the greatest beast he can find halfway around the world.  His attempts at encountering the creature are successful when halfway around the world they discover (SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER BEWARE THE SPOILER) the legendary monstrosity himself, King Kong.

Crippled by A Fundamental Lack of Understanding of the Material
No tension or threat of violence.
Embarrassing fight choreography.
Costuming is inappropriately clean for the setting.
Characters miscast, especially Billy and Bobby.
Unmotivated, static blocking, with little business for or by the players.
Emotional range of the actors never pass sitcom levels.
Pacing lacks the music written into the language.
Set, lighting, sound were all acceptable.
