Corrected entry: When Jack first arrived at the port in Surabaya, he took a taxi. The driver was sitting on the left, hence it was left-hand steering car. Indonesia drives on the left side of the road (right-hand steering) and has since the automobile was introduced there.
Corrected entry: In the New York section of the film, with Kong rampaging through the streets, Jessica Lange and Jeff Bridges try to escape using the elevated train, only for Kong to track them down and attack it. The scene alternates between shots inside the carriage (a studio set) and outside it (where it's obviously a guy in a monkey suit and a model train). In order to escape the carriage, Jeff smashes a window, however, the window he smashes (in the studio set) is nothing like the ones on the model train. One is square shaped and the other is circular.
Corrected entry: A full sized, fully working Kong was made for the film but was considered so bad to look at they never even used it.
Corrected entry: Whatever else he is Kong is a gorilla, a large ape. Apes are instinctively terrified of water (Tim Burton got it spot on in Planet of the Apes) and have to be patiently taught to overcome their fear in order to swim or walk through water. There is no way in the world Kong would walk through the East River as they show here, regardless of his size.
Corrected entry: Gorillas are excellent climbers, and Kong demonstrates this by shinning up the World Trade Centre with little trouble. The "Kong-proof" wall on Skull Island is barely taller than he is and he would be over it creating mayhem in the village before they'd even got that ridiculous door shut. (This applies to the classic 1930s film as well as this one.)
Corrected entry: When Dwan is crying on the roof of the World Trade Center soon after Kong's fall, you can see a building behind her that is several stories taller than the one she's standing on. However, that shouldn't be the case since the Twin Towers were of equal height and the tallest buildings in the world at the time.
