King Kong Reviews

It's a remake that was a good idea, because it's bigger newer and better than the old one.

The special effects are marvelous, the good-humored script is comic-bookish without being excessively campy, and there are two excellent performances

It's madness to try to remake a myth, but even so, John Guillermin's jokey, low-camp film seems awfully inadequate.

The then unknown Jessica Lange plays the Fay Wray role with a valiant attempt at empathy, while Charles Grodin brings comic glee to the exploitative oilman. It's colourful, noisy and fun.

A remake that lacks the magic of the original, but is as camp and entertaining as any other disaster movie of its time.

Bad script and acting ruin a classic story.

Faithful in substantial degree not only to the letter but also the spirit of the 1933 classic for RKO, this $22 million-plus version neatly balances superb special effects with solid dramatic credibility.

Not as bad as reputed, this Kong has some good moments + great Barry score.

The results of this technological bonanza are pretty mixed.

Fairly entertaining remake

Dino de Laurentis se atrevi a hacer lo que muy pocos tienen las agallas de intentar: realizar el remake de un clsico por antonomasia: King Kong.

Forgetting the desecration, though, this is almost watchable, with Jessica Lange in her first starring role as the girl in the hairy paw, and pleasant support from Jeff Bridges and Charles Grodin.

easy to mock, but hard to truly dislike

Common wisdom contends that Dino De Laurentiis' big-budget remake of Merian C. Cooper's classic 1933 film, King Kong, is a bad movie. And, viewed from a certain perspective, perhaps it is, but it's also a lot of fun.
