Goremaster’s review published on Letterboxd:
It's amazing how this movie has retained its charm after all those years. The film is extremely revolutionary and daring for the time.
The most glaring difference from this film to the other versions, is that Ann is really terrified by the giant ape and doesn't feel pity for him in any moment, as it happens in the 1976 and 2005 versions, where the "romance" between Ann and the creature is wide open.
The pioneering special effects are still fun to watch. The incredible fight between Kong and a dinosaur, which is not part of the 1976 remake, is one of the highlights of the movie.
