      Rich A Classic retelling I watch this one over and over Kong fans must watch! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/22/24 Full Review Audience Member While the animation may be cheap, the song writing team responsible for The Jungle Book, Mary Poppins, and The Aristocats contribute wonderful songs on par with the rest of their repertoire. Jodi Benson does her best to carry this direct to Video Film, but in the end their isn't much that can be done. With a larger budget and more care, this could have been a decent film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A Mighty disappointing remake do not see it. See King Kong (1933) Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member It doesn't really work well as a remake, and even then, kids might not even enjoy it much. Most of the film takes place on the ship, and very little time is spent on the island. Kong almost feels like a minor character. The songs get annoying, and the animation is cheap. It doesn't really add anything to the original, besides an alternative happy ending. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is not quite as dreadful as King Kong lives but it still can't live up to the awesomeness of the original 1933 Kong,the 2005 remake of Kong,King Kong VS Godzilla & King Kong Escapes also it still manages to be worse then the 1977 Kong which is hard to do. I obviously expected a kids movie so I didn't think it would be a masterpiece of any kind but with Dudley Moore voice Kong it could be enjoyable. Sadly it wasn't. This movie is a deliberate comedy that parodies the original. I feel as though they had no respect for the original movie and just wanted to make a dumb goofy animation for very little kids. An unfunny comedy from beginning to end that doesn't compliment the original at all. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
