“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
