Product Description

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.

I was a little disappointed with this disc as there are no extras- just the film, and it's the Americanised dubbed version.However, what you get is an often hilarious romp with the large, badly costumed Kong and the always lovable Godzilla, doing a spot of toe-to-toe wrestling, trashing half of Tokyo as they go.

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.

Just beefing out my classic-monster movie collection and had to get this. Two creature titans of cinema battling it out among themselves and still managing some healthy city-destruction with a so-bad-it's-good backdrop of Blue Peter style 'special effects' and set-pieces? Yes please. Throw in some insane dubbing and the hilarious magic of Godzilla doing his cheap-toy arm freak out each time he's angry or about to kick off while a sometimes terrifyingly bad King Kong suit stumbles around throwing rocks clumsily and you have a real winner here which really did have me in stitches more often than it should have done.

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.

Based on the title, you can tell I am a dedicated Godzilla Fan. I have watched this movie countless times and even today I still get a kick out of it. It was this movie that I started to take a liking to King Kong (I am one who didnt really enjoy the 1933 oringal King Kong movie) and I must say the scenes with Kong is so hilarious.

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.

This classic movie now comes to blu-ray is it worth an upgrade if you have the dvd well yes and no.If you have a projector and need a nice in focus picture due to your larger picture the answer is yes but if you are watching on tv i would say no.Now about the disc itself the sound is very good as is the picture the col is nice and rich the trouble with this disc is the movie is shown in the wrong format what you get here is a movie that was shot in full scope but on the disc we get a widescreen format which makes it just a little better than pan and scan.The second thing is there is no extras on this disc at all not even a trailer which is a great shame as i have it on 16mm and its a classic.As i have said many times we are not getting the best of blu-ray with these movie only discs but we seem to be getting more and more of them from the so called big companys like UNIVERSAL etc yet a small company like ARROW are showing the big boys how it should be done.One last thing UNIVERSAL have also brought out the follow up on blu-ray KING KONG ESCAPES which also is a movie only disc with good col and sound but also in the wrong format and no extras come on UNIVERSAL you can do better than this

King Kong and Godzilla are quite possibly the 2 most famous and iconic monsters ever in the history of Kaiju movies, so well done to Toho for coming up with this idea. despite the fact I have watched this many times, I still rooted for Godzilla, even though I knew that Kong wins, although that is subjective, because we hear Godzillas roar at the end, even if we don,t see him.

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
