"Still unbelievably good...made with painstaking detail and care."--San Francisco Examiner
"Grade A...splendid enshrinement of the original..."--Entertainment Weekly
"****...seeing a remastered Kong this good makes history..."--USA Today
Consensus: King Kong explores the soul of a monster -- making audiences scream and cry throughout the film -- in large part due to Kong's breakthrough special effects.
