King Kong Review


A film crew goes to a tropical island for an exotic location shoot and discovers a colossal giant gorilla who takes a shine to their female blonde star. He is then captured and brought back to New York City for public exhibition.

King Kong is a story that takes you into an uncharted land where they find hostile natives and unusual creatures. One of these creatures is King Kong. The last of his kind and an amazing beast. 

I loved King Kong and I didn’t even mind that it is in black and white. The incredible scope and range of the movie make it hard to believe that so much feeling can be condensed into a film especially from the dawn of the film industry. Truly captivating and you see more than a living raging beast in King Kong because you can feel his emotions in this beauty and the beast classic. Indeed worth being called a classic in every sense and worth watching even if it is your first black and white.
