  • Critic Reviews
    "...KING KONG is more than a technical achievement. It is also a curiously touching fable....There is something ageless and primeval about KING KONG that still somehow works..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "...The grand-daddy of all monster movies..."
    Total Film

    "[T]he first Kong has something today's CGI masters are hard-pressed to give their monsters: a soul."

    "[I]t's still the quintessential pulp saga, capable of popping eyeballs 70-odd years later without the help of computers."
    Movieline's Hollywood Life

    "[The] black-and-white granddaddy of beast-on-the-loose movies....The movie looks improved over earlier video and TV copies, and still packs a wallop..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 4 -- "What makes KONG unique is its mix of hokum, horror, and peculiar poetry..."

    "...KING KONG is the screen's ultimate Beauty-and-the-Beast fable, and it endures through the power of innocence that has all but vanished from the screen..."
    Los Angeles Times

    Ranked #3 in Rolling Stone's "Top 25 DVDs Of 2005' -- "[T]he joy is seeing the 1933 original, complete with Max Steiner's classic score and once-censored scenes..."
