Pete Battista’s review published on Letterboxd:
This may surprise some of you... but this is the first time I ever seen this film. I have seen both remakes... but never seen the original before today! Something I am glad I finally rectified. Thanks to a good, generous friend that got me a copy after finding out I never seen it before. I must say... I am surprised just how much I enjoyed this one. I definitely prefer it compared to either of the remakes. For such an old film it holds up beautifully. The look of Kong was a lot better then I was expecting considering the age of the film. I must say... I enjoyed every moment of it... one I definitely recommend!
