Though in no way can this compete in any way with the dynamic chills and melodramatic thrills of it's illustrious predecessor, this just-over-an-hour-long quickie works well enough, if simply classed within it's own terms: ie a non-fat, efficient comic-strip diversion of a movie.

Some fantasy fans deride this film, [KONG junior is a white albino, and a 'mere' 12 feet tall]which is often played for laughs, and many of the original KONG cast members [excluding WRAY] are present and correct, and unlike most sequels, this actually feels like a legitimate continuation of the original saga-----with the overall atmosphere and technique wholly consistent with 'KING KONG'.

The lesser budget shows, however,and NOBLE JOHNSON'S witchdoctor appearence is brief and unimpressive compared to the splendid spectacle of the original. Armstrong's role is expanded, however, with good use put to hard-boiled, cynical wisecracks, especially in the first half, which is esentially build-up.

The film really shifts into gear around mid-point, and from here on, excellent dimensional special effects come to the fore, with mini-KONG battling a bear and a sea-serpent-like beast. There isn't a great deal of WILLIS O'BRIEN'S trademark characteristics on show here, and reportedly he wasn't too enamored with the overall concept, and rarely discussed this movie at all in later years [tragically, around this time, his wife experienced severe mental problems, and shot dead WILLIS' two young sons, before failing to shoot herself]; and the bulk of the actual animation [which works fine]was apparantly undertaken by BUZ GIBSON and others.

There features an early example of a climatic volcano eruption, which is skilfully handled.T here is a very tragic ending.

The honest-to-goodness real-life sequel to King Kong features several returning cast members (Robert Armstrong is back as Carl Denham along with John Marston and Victor Wong as captain and cook of The Venture though neither Fay Wray nor Kong are back) along with director Robert B Schoesdack and producer Merian C Cooper. The story starts with Denham escaping back to the south seas to escape the hundreds of lawsuits brought by the victims of Kong at the end of the last film. While out there he runs into the man who sold him the map to Skull Island and a return becomes inevitable to find the treasure claimed to be there.

They find "Junior Kong", a 12-foot version of Kong and have a small adventure before definitively closing the door on other sequels.

It's a lightweight romp with the basic idea that he spectacular events of one film become the legal nightmare of the next actually being rather interesting. It's only 69 minutes long so it can't outstay its welcome and, possibly contrary to prevailing opinion, I actually rather like it, dancing monkeys and musical number notwithstanding/

This WB blu-ray plays fine on UK players and the picture and sound are pretty good. Despatch was quick and the price less than the equivalent UK DVD. Buy with confidence.

The Son of Kong is directed by Ernest B. Schoedsack and written by Ruth Rose. It stars Robert Armstrong, Helen Mack, Frank Reicher, John Marston, Victor Wong and Edward Brady. Music is by Max Steiner and cinematography by Edward Linden.

The makers wisely realised that to try and emulate King Kong would be folly, especially as this sequel was hurried out within the same year. Instead a more fun approach was taken, and as a result it’s not half bad entertainment as it happens.

After the devastation caused to New York by King Kong, lawsuits are abound for Carl Denham (Armstrong). So when he gets the chance to go out on the ocean again with Captain Englehorn (Reicher), he grabs the chance. There’s no plans to go near Skull Island again, but a sequence of events will see them pitch up there, to be met by a myriad of creatures and The Son of Kong.

Little Kong is actually friendly, well to the humans he is because he is grateful to their help when he was stuck in quicksand. However, to other beasts of the island he is not so forgiving. For the first 33 minutes it’s all about setting up the action carnage later in the play, characters are introduced, their reasons for being out at sea and etc. Then we get to the island and off we go. Kong scraps with dinosaurs, a bear, lizards and mother nature! The castaways are in the mix as well of course, and naturally they are thrust into a perilous life and death situation.

And that’s it, barely 70 minutes have passed by and it’s nigh on impossible not to be smiling come the close. 7/10

IT was less than a year from KING KONG when most of the cast got back together for this movie but this time it was a flop.The movie had the great WILLIS O BRIEN doing the monsters etc and these are very well done but its the slow story line and KONG itself that lets the movie down in fact they put on the posters that this was a SERIO-COMJC PHANTASY. Now about the disc it has a nice clear picture and good sound on the extra side we get the trailer of the movie.So to sum up a nice disc but just dont think you will get a movie as good as KING KONG as you wont but take it for what it is even in the movie ROBERT ARMSTRONG turns and says about baby KONG he is not a patch of his old man i think that summed it up very well
