Mason was shown loading Kodak Plus-X film into her camera, which is, or was, a mid speed black and white film, OK for daytime shooting, but not for low light shots as she is seen taking later, at least not without camera shake and blurring or unless you use flash equipment. Also, as it is black and white, it isn't what you would use to capture the colors of the Southern Lights and a timed exposure would just be a bunch of gray blur. Many photographers carry more than one type of film and there may have been an off camera switch of film types. See more »

with no more place to discuss a film like this, I guess I'll just post a review with 1 star to let people know this film does almost nothing. It just goes from point A to point B with lots of wiz-bang cartoon (CGI) creatures fighting, some people doing stuff, and none of it we really care about. If I was 10, the cartoon (CGI) parts might impress me, but as an adult, I just didn't care about any of it, have no interest in ever wasting time watching it again, and CERTAINLY DON'T RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE. Seemed like just a money grab that was missing MOST of the King Kong stuff from previous versions. Disaappointed. Money Wasted.
