Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 3696 ratings.
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!
