This Japanese sci-fi adventure is a clash of the cinematic titans, as King Kong and Godzilla square off for a monster showdown. At the same time as a pharmaceutical company manager undertakes an expedition in search of the mystical berries that confer gigantic size on the legendary Kong, a team of American pilots have discovered the frozen tomb of the fearsome Godzilla. When they thaw him out, the stage is set for a titanic battle between the two oversize creatures.

Th transfer is very good and the ratio is letterbox 1x2.35, not 1x1.78 as it states on the box and at 87 mins good fun.
My 3 year old daughter loved it so much, we're watching it again tonight! Thank her for the review title.
This is the simple story of Godzilla being released accidentally from his iceberg prison at the same time that King Kong has been uncovered on a remote island where a pharmaceutical rep has discovered some very magic berries with some very magical properties that encourage super growth. A plot is then developed that the two can be used to destroy each other,rather than risk having either destroy humanity and so the battle begins.
Some of the classic, corny dialogue is just perfect, hilarious and can only work in a classic setting like this with some brilliant one-liners which are hard to remove from your brain afterwards and the plot and story most definitely become secondary to this and the very poor but classic creature-feature effects. This is the Americanised version of the Japanese original with some wild dubbing throughout and all the more terrible/better for it.
The sound is good, the picture is good and it's a rare occurrence where you are putting a DVD in and just playing it - no trailers, no extras, nothing, which didn't bother me in the slightest as this was all about seeing the big guys in their early incarnations battling it out and anyone who's seen the recent remake of Godzilla will spot one or two scenes which have very clearly been an inspiration.
Those who watch monster movies in terms of plot may want to look elsewhere as true monster fans know that the reasons we watch this is because of the monster battles (what else?). The first meeting between Godzilla and King Kong is brief but I'm happy with the outcome!!
The second battle which lasts much longer is the best scene of the entire movie with both monsters at it, and for me its better than watching wrestling!! There are many questions that will get to you, such as Kong's Origin, Godzilla disliking electricity (thats weird considering Godzilla is meant to fuse with electricity), Kong being attracted to electricity (even weirder), but these can all be forgiven for, as the film was made back in 1963.
Overall, an excellent Godzilla movie with King Kong.
there is a mistaken believe that there are 2 separate endings to this movie, with Kong winning in the American dubbed version and Godzilla winning in the original Japanese version, but this is wrong, Kong wins in both, which is a strange decision by Toho if you ask me. Kong and Zilla square off twice, although the first round is very short and goes to Godzilla, with Kong retreating in shame. the second fight is longer and better with Godzilla once again having the upper hand, until a convenient lightning storm hits Kong and makes him stronger, apparently electricity makes Kong stronger!!! who would have guessed?
from then, its pretty much even between the 2, until they wrestle each other into the ocean, with Kong emerging, and swimming back home to his island. classic movie which hasn,t lost its charm even in this age of cinematic blockbusters
