Iconic, textbook monster flick. If you’ve ever enjoyed a blockbuster, you can thank this film
Far more enjoyable than I was expecting. Kong will forever remain King of the Empire State Building.
For a person who usually gets very bored watching movies from 60’s and before, this is an above average film even in modern time
The sheer gratuitous spectacle makes up for a slow beginning.
That’s a real nice Empire State Building you got there. Be a shame if a giant monkey were to climb on top of it.
A product of its era, Kong is sympathetic after being taken from his environment, although ironically, portrait of Africans is insulting.
An instant classic. Revisiting this is always a treasure, especially with not only how historic it is, but for its novelty in the B&W era.
Really great creature feature from the 30s…stop motion holds up really well
A classic tale, simple story with a complexly sympathetic monster. Tells the story the best it has even been told. Truly an iconic film.
Great film for the time but it hasn't aged well. Still worth a watch to see how impressive the effects were back then.
Adventurous filmmaker Carl Denham sets out to produce a motion picture unlike anything the world has seen before. Alongside his leading lady Ann Darrow and his first mate Jack Driscoll, they arrive on an island and discover a legendary creature said to be neither beast nor man. Denham captures the monster to be displayed on Broadway as King Kong, the eighth wonder of the world.
Beleaguered adventurer Carl Denham returns to the island where he found King Kong.
