Great Fun With An Evil Doctor Who!, November 10, 2014
Just finished watching "King Kong Escapes" released by Universal.
Nothing pays a writer more homage like when other writers steal from him; and in "King Kong Escapes" the stealing, why is as colossal as the great ape himself. How Universal avoided a LAWSUIT from when this movie was first released is beyond me...however SPOILERS AHEAD:
Doctor Who - that's right fanboys, a cape wearing Japanese Doctor Who modeling himself after Jon Pertwee's Third Doctor is busy constructing a 60-foot tall King Kong Robot to mine tons of Element X which will make country sponsoring his "research" the world's lone superpower. Unfortunately for Doctor Who, his giant robot can't function in the presence of Element X, so he needs to finds the living King Kong
Madame X, not from the tear jerker movie of the same name, isn't amused by the mechanical failure of Doctor Who's evil robot. Fortunately for Doctor Who, Commander Nelson and his submarine crew - seems in the movie Admirial Nelson of the SeaView from Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea - got a demontion - have to seek port in the harbor of the island where King Kong lives.
Hoping to see the living giant ape for themselves, Nelson, and his second in command, Lt. Commander Jiro Nomura,and lovely blonde haired nurse Lt. Susan Miller - yep Doctor Who fans, the heroine's name is Susan - head out to the island in a hover car much like the SeaView's flying submarine.
Naturally, King Kong rescues Susan from a giant dinosaur; and when Nelson, Jiro, and Susan make their report to the U.N. Science Council, Doctor Who sets into motion plans to kidnap King Kong and Susan so that he can mine Element X and get paid millions of dollars.
Of specail note in this movie is the romance between Jiro and Susan - a first for its time in science-fiction/fantasy movies, if I'm not mistaken.
"King Kong Escapes" is a perfect Saturday Matinee Movie. It never takes itself too seriously and it's great fun.
It's a shame that a sequel was never filmed. It would have been fun to see Nelson, Jiro, and Susan on another adventure; but perhaps the threat of two lawsuits had put an end to any sequel, if one had ever been envisioned.
Highly Recommended!
Five Stars because its great fun, if you don't take it seriously!

Wonderful and Cheesy, October 2, 2014
This is a wonderful cheesy movie. The special effects are horrible. The strings are visible. But you know what? I loved every minute of it. If you like old monster movies, then this is a MUST HAVE for your collection.

MAJOR GRAINYNESS THROUGHT OUT WHOLE MOVIE-DONT BUY JUST- STICK TO OLDER DVD VERSION, August 26, 2014
great movie terrible process used to transfer it to Blu-ray--

grainy through out the bulk of the film I tried 2 copy's of this film and returned them both back to amazon -

and just kept my older dvd version that came out a few years ago oddly enough the older dvd looked better then this and my ps3 doesn't have a DNR to try to get rid of any grain but with all the grain on the movie I doubt it would matter

if you want this film buy the dvd version its looks better then this poorly made Blu-ray :(
