Alfredo GarciaThe way this film makes a monster turn into a misunderstood monkey for the viewer with not even one single dialogue is just amazing. A true all time classic and a must-see for sure.
ClintmwellsSurprisingly brutal for 30's cinema. Great film.
St. GloedeI find the notion that this big special effects blockbuster and crowd pleaser is being called elitist quite absurd. This is probably one of the most "accessible" film from this era for younger generations as it's ludicrously fast paced, a bit too fast for my taste, and essentially shares the tradition that people like Roland Emmerich are now taking part of. Though the latter statement might offend the most hardcore fan ;)
Siskoid1933's King Kong is a revelation. I wasn't expecting to see claymation so well integrated into live action. I guess it's mostly done through rear projection, but still, the level of planning and innovation is just spectacular. The effects are frankly better than a lot of films made more than 50 years later, and I sometimes wonder how they were even achieved. The animation is expressive and detailed, and the film is surprisingly violent and even sexy from what I imagined of the era (perhaps it's the reinstatement of the "censored scenes". A true classic.
WarrisonI acknowledge that these were the pioneers of special effects and they are amazing for there age, however I felt the story was to narrow and the movie was 'bulked' up by an overly long island scene and too many Kong vs ??? Fight scenes.
Micaela FMIt gets pretty annoying by the
timmy_501That last line is one of the cheesiest things I've ever heard.
frankqbFrighteningly ahead of its time? Yes. Groundbreaking Special effects? Yes. Boring and uninvolving? Sadly, yes.
chunkylefungaGreat film, much better than the Peter Jackson remake.
DieguitoThousand times better than the new one.
George BaileyFantastic effects! Was totally blown away! 10/10
KatForsythI liked it more than Peter Jackson's show-off one with no heart and boring, overlong action sequences!
sushantv10liked it more than i expected.......
onedarkdogThis film like most ever made has its flaws, but its brilliant, i shed a tear at the end. It was absolutely groundbreaking for its time and it touched on a taboo subject. Some complain that the island scene was too long, but that was the main act of the film, it was what the punters went to see, it was the place that they could get away for an hour or so. We may have all seen jurassic park, but they hadn't. You cannot look at old films with todays critical eye, Its like taking a model t ford and saying that it doesn't handle very well and gets terrible milage, its just not the same thing. Appreciate it for what it is. (having finally seen this i can see what peter jackson was trying to achieve, but this is better than jacksons version!)
WoliverDa beauty killed the beast, biatch!
