Critic Reviews:

Even allowing for its slow start, wooden acting and wall-to-wall screaming, there is something ageless and primeval about "King Kong" that still somehow works.

It is a great piece of imagination, hatched in the brain of a showman for showmen, produced in grand style and good taste, and most capably acted and directed.

...everyone has always agreed that the film represents O’Brien’s finest achievement in the area of model animation. His models merge perfectly with a story of almost epic proportions, with the result that the special effects, while vitally important, don’t take over the film to the extent where the story becomes a mere appendage.
