THE PLOT:

The evil Doctor Who, natorious scientist has been hired to dig up a radioactive ore by an unknown enemy government, so they can build a new kind of atomic bomb. To do that, Doctor build a robot copy of King Kong, dubbed MechaKong. The only thing is that the radioadion interferes with MechaKong's controls and he can't dig up the ore.

So, Doctor Who decides to kidnap the real Kong, he takes a trip to Skull Island and uses sleep gas on the mighty ape. To try to get him to obey, he also kidnaps a beatiful female crew member of a scientific submarine there to study Kong.

Can Kong rescue the girl and escape from MechaKong?

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I liked this one, I liked MechaKong, I liked Gorosaurus. I evil liked the way they made Kong's arms like a real apes. Few people using costumes do that. Also, unlike KING KONG VS. GODZILLA, he was the right size. Around sixty feet tall. This is a good movie. There was an error though in the fight with Gorosaurus, Kong did a roll and the mask almost came off.
I GIVE IT....9 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I also enjoyed King Kong Escapes. Even though a better title would have been KING KONG VS. MECHAKONG. I would have liked to seen more of MECHAKONG though. But other then that.
I GIVE IT...9 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+SIZE (We both liked the Kong was thr right size in this movie)
+MECHAKONG (We both liked the Mechakong design allot)
+STORY (We both enjoyed the story)
+GOROSAURUS (We even liked Gorosaurus)
+ARMS (It was nice to see a gorilla costume with the right porpotions to a real gorilla)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

-MISTAKE (Kong's mask almost came off)
-TITLE (Voltron thought it should have called King Kong Vs. Mechakong)
-MORE OF MECHAKONG (Voltron would liked to seen more of Mechakong)

AND FINALLY:

NOT FOR EVERYONE (If you're not big on giant monster trashing a city, then this isn't for you)
