AUDIENCE SCORE
User Ratings: 1,445
Rating: 5/10 -- Weird and random without being particularly memorable, and it's very difficult to feel even a little bit sad that Toho never bothered trying to get Kong back after this picture. Full Review

Dec 22, 2013
Rating: 2.5/4 -- Colorful, cartoonish fun, with an improved Toho Kong who eventually battles a 'robot Kong' created by evil Dr. Who (Hideyo Amamoto), variously described as 'an Oriental skeleton,' 'an international Judas' and 'a devil who lies like a gutter rat.' Ouch. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

It's King Kong to the rescue...when a giant robot threatens to destroy Tokyo in the gripping King Kong Escapes! The action begins when the conniving Dr. Who builds a robot Kong in order to retrieve a highly radioactive element for his mysterious benefactor, Madame X. When the robot proves less than reliable, the devious duo scheme to kidnap the real Kong from his remote island home of Mondo. But interfering with their plans are the heroic trio of U.S. Cmdr. Carl Nelson, Lt. Jiro Nomura, and Kong's current crush, Lt. Susan Watson. It's up to them to outwit the greedy ape-nappers in this sci-fi adventure that takes Kong to unprecedented heights of excitement.

King Kong Escapes Movie Lover: from Hiawatha, IA US -- February, 3, 2007

King Kong Escapes is a joint effort from Japan's Toho studios (creators of Godzilla) and Rankin-Bass (of Rudolph The Red-Noses Reindeer and Frosty The Snowman fame). In fact, the movie is based on the Rankin-Bass King Kong cartoon series from 1966.
The movie is total eye candy that could have only come out of the colorful 1960's. It views like a live action cartoon, a spy movie (with a James Bond-like supervillan subplot), and it features Robot Kong, one of the most clever giant monster creations to emerge from the Toho stables at the time. Not to be missed!
