Nothing but a campy '70s disaster movie

“"There is a girl out there who might be running for her life from some gigantic turned-on ape."

Almost three decades before Peter Jackson re-imagined 1933's King Kong for a new generation of filmgoers, Italian B-movie producer Dino De Laurentiis had the same idea. Naturally, though, due to the filmmaking technology of the period, 1976's King Kong looks subpar compared to Peter Jackson's technological marvel, and it's also unable to achieve the level of adventure and spectacle which characterised the classic that started it all. In addition, several drastic changes were made for this King Kong which may irk fans - characters names are absent, the ship voyage happens without any build-up, the eventual New York sequences are tragically short, and the finale does not occur atop the E” read more

"19.2. 2010 It's the second time I watched this remake and it felt better than I remembered. The thing I remembered the best was gorgeous Jessica Lange in her first film role. It is a very suitable role for her, because her character, Dwan, is also an aspiring actress. There are many differences here and there when compared to original "King Kong": an expedition of the petrol company "Petrox" is going towards an isolated island, which is surrounded by fog. One of the passengers, Jack Prescott,"

"John Guillermin, the director of this Kong, is indeed a bad director. He makes King Kong look so incredibly amateurish it's painful to watch. The perfect example of that would be the fact that Kong is obviously a man in a costume in every single shot of this film when we see him entirely. They did it well in stop-motion back in the 30s, so it really beats me as to why they had to do it so bad this time around. Also, what's with the sexual overtones here? Kong is constantly trying to fuck Jessica"
