3.0 out of 5 stars A LITTLE LET DOWN, 27 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The King Kong Collection : King Kong (Black & White) [1933] / King Kong (Colourised) [1933] / King Kong Vs Godzilla [1963] / King Kong Escapes [1968] (4 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
Firstly if this was a decent version of the original King Kong I would be giving it 5 stars. It is a classic film and whilst I'm not a complete Kong fanatic still have to respect that.

I just feel a little let down by this box set in general, even though at this price I perhaps shouldn't be too critical. It is nice to have the colourised version even though it is not something I will watch many times.

My main reason for buying this was the inclusion of the two 1960's Toho films. I have always loved these films and they didn't let me down. Badly Dubbed in places, terrible acting and men running around in suits. Perfect. I actually thought the picture quality was pretty good as well.

This collection though just feels like its been hastily thrown together from what is available. I think if we are going to have a proper King Kong Collection all the films should be released in some sort of order with new extras that build into a set worthy of the original film.

I will add that the packaging adds to my criticism because whilst I did get all the films that were advertised the discs themselves were all labelled incorrectly.

To sum up if you have a passing interest in this type of film or are a Kong completist then at this price it's not a bad box set to get. On the other hand if you are looking for a definitive version of the original film then give this a miss and go for the import version.
