REVIEWS

“The grand-daddy of all monster movies.”
Total Film

“More than a technical achievement, but a curiously touching fable.
There is something ageless and primeval about King Kong.”

– Roger Ebert

“Still the quintessential pulp saga, capable of popping eyeballs
70-odd years later without the help of computers."

– Michael Atkinson

"A blockbuster among early talkies that has since endured as an icon of movie-ness as well as a treasure trove for cinema studies majors who've dissected its inestimable bounty of sexual, racial, and surreal imagery."
– Jaime N. Christley, Slant Magazine
