Crappy Reviews No Surprise, But...

The decidedly crappy reviews heaped on this film were pretty well deserved, though it must be said that there have been much worse insults to filmgoers' intelligence than "King Kong Lives." Linda Hamilton stars as Amy Franklin, head of a scientific team that develops an artificial heart to miraculously keep Kong with us after his famous fall from the New York City skyline. With the help of blood transfused from a newly-discovered Lady Kong, the big guy is soon up and around and eating people again. But this time his true interest lay in his new girlfriend, whom he not-so-subtly rescues from captivity. The hairy couple hope to live happily ever after, but the brutish army and rifle-bearing yokels have other ideas.

It's difficult to pinpoint the biggest fault of "King Kong Lives." Overall, it's pretty ridiculous, from the story to the special effects to the supposedly emotional moments. It's overlong, the dialog could have been written by junior high kids, and the characters, particularly the "bad guys," are so one-dimensional it's not even funny. But if you can accept all of that, you can get at least some entertainment value out of this sequel, though don't expect a so-bad-it's-funny picture.

King Kong Lives!

This is one of the great movies of the 80s in MY collection that I think about all the time.

Some minor spoilers

King Kong Lives starts right where the 1977 version left off.KKL is very good movie and is really a super sequel.Its made very well and the acting and effects is very good but the movie is just plain sad.I guess all lovers of Apes will cry if they see this movie.I don`t want to spoil it it for you but there is lots of action and the film is never boring.I really like the scene where King Kong walks through the swamp and is all you see is fog then and black sky.That is so neat.I wouldn`t recommend this movie to people who dislike animals getting hurt.If you like King Kong but don`t like to see the great ape get hurt then I recommend that you see King Kong vs. Godzilla and King Kong Escapes.In them movies he is unstoppable.The music it terriffic! Its by John Scott.Its a great score.Overall King Kong Lives is great movie!
