A movie crew, travelling to a mysterious island to shoot their picture, encounter a furious gorilla, taking their leading actress and forming a special relationship with her, protecting her at all costs.
(At around twenty-four minutes) When Adrien Brody is first taken to the animal cells on the boat to find sleeping quarters, a cage bearing the sign Sumatran Rat Monkey can be seen as he turns the first corner. This is a nod to Dead Alive (1992).
That's a funny one. Isn't that funnier?
(at around 24 mins) When Driscoll steps in the camel manure below decks, the following shot just after he wipes off his shoe shows a clean floor with no piles or patches of manure.
At the end of the closing credits: "This film is dedicated with love and respect to the original adventurers of Skull Island: Merian C. Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack, Willis H. O'Brien, Max Steiner, Robert Armstrong and ... the incomparable Fay Wray. They continue to inspire all those who follow in their footsteps."
