Rating: B- -- 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. Full Review

Jul 24, 2005
Rating: 3/4 -- Between a lengthy chase and a devastating fire, the final half-hour delivers the goods, and Willis O'Brien (assisted by Ray Harryhausen) earned the Best Special Effects Oscar for his efforts. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- 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.

Rating: 3.5/5 -- An entertaining "friendlier" version of King Kong.
