| King Kong (2005) - A male-positive movie |
A huge shout out to King Kong!
Ultimately The girl fell for him for his qualities on his terms, she didn't try to change him. In fact the concept of her changing his overwhelming power and manliness would have been utterly silly.
And it was brutally honest.
In the end his unfearful and unconditional love for her, cost him his life.

I agree. Plus the men were nearly all portrayed in a good light. They could have easily tossed in a scene between the boat crew and the girl getting hassled but didn't.
The crew was professional and rather honorable and honest. Plus, they had the side plot of the boy and the black first mate almost son/father relationship. And even the narcissistic lead actor came back with a rescue party. And the good guy was liked because he had good qualities not on his looks.
As for the gorilla's death, I saw that as one last great battle before he died. They showed the cave of bones and him alone, kind of waiting to die.
