Customer Review

on 5 November 2009
A submarine packed with UN advisors is sailing near the fabled Island of Mondo, where King Kong is meant to live. However, their too busy to take a trip there. Meanwhile, Dr Who, not a very nice man, has built a robot replica Kong, called Mechakong to dig at the North Pole for radioactive ore. However, his robot slave conks out. Meanwhile, just by Mondo Island, our heroes submarine has conked out too, and they end up satisfying their curiosity, and visiting the island. Despite warnings from a bearded crone, they press onwards, until Lieutenant Susan Watson(Linda Miller) gets into a close encounter with a man in a rubber suit, sorry I mean a Gorosaurus. Her screeching awakens Kong who battles Goro to the death, then just a few minutes later grapples with a sea serpent, allowing our intrepid heroes to escape. In between fights, Kong loves to stroke Susan. However, when Dr Who, who is in league with the mysterious Madame Pirahna, hears of Kong's existance, he has his own sinister plans for the giant ape
The Japanese loved to pit their giant monsters in celebrity death matches against eachother, and this is no exception, with our two Kongs squaring up at the climax of the film. Mecha-Kong is very impressive, the real Kong a little less so, looking a bit moth eaten. This doesnt matter one jot, as the film is a great piece of escapist fun, with a pantomine villian, who plays chess whilst his prisoners freeze to death, and the usual array of model vechiles, and model sets for the monsters to destroy. The plot is straight out of James Bond, just with added giant ape. The acting is adequate, Mie Hama probably coming off best as Madame Pirahna. Nice music score too.
Great fun, give me this over Jackson's folly any day. 4 out of 5
