They show Kong, completely ruining any buildup the film attempted.
A random volcano eruption
King Kong escapes, are you really surprised? And then he does what all giant monsters do in the city: rampage.
King Kong kidnaps Ann, and carries her up the Empire State Building. Planes shoot at him while he beats his chest. Then Ann falls, and hangs on for dear life. Then a couple blimps show up with a net to recapture Kong, only for him to break through and fall to his death. But it wasn't the fall that killed Kong, it was beauty that killed the beast. ...But not really. Kong lives! WHAT THE HECKIN' HECK?
