More of a historic novelty than an action film.

Though in the shadows of Kong it still brings back fond memories of how to make a special effect film back in the old days.

Great Willis O'Brien effects, a good story and fine cast. A wonderful fantasy, not as good as King Kong, but still fun to watch.
