King Kong Lives

Overview

Pandering über-producer Dino De Laurentiis followed his unnecessary 1976 remake of King Kong with this even more pointless sequel ten years later. Though the colossal ape Kong took a half-gainer off the World Trade Center for Jessica Lange at the previous film's climax, we are told at the sequel's outset that Kong survived and is being kept alive through artificial means by a secret scientific team headed by Linda Hamilton in her pre-action-heroine days dedicated to designing a synthetic replacement heart.

Overview

Pandering über-producer Dino De Laurentiis followed his unnecessary 1976 remake of King Kong with this even more pointless sequel ten years later. Though the colossal ape Kong took a half-gainer off the World Trade Center for Jessica Lange at the previous film's climax, we are told at the sequel's outset that Kong survived and is being kept alive through artificial means by a secret scientific team headed by Linda Hamilton in her pre-action-heroine days dedicated to designing a synthetic replacement heart. When the hilariously huge device is deemed ready for implant, the scientists seek out the only known donor for the requisite blood transfusion: a female Kong, recently captured in Borneo by adventurer Brian Kerwin. Kong's luck turns out to be twofold: not only is the implant a success, the big lug now has a potential mate who's more his type. After Kong rescues his fellow captive, the amorous behemoths eventually thunder off to the mountains to make a great big baby. Director John Guillermin who helmed the previous film plays the unbelievably silly premise absolutely straight, including a hilarious heart-transplant scene featuring surgical tools the size of freeway signs, leading viewers to believe that the joke's on them for sitting through this inane exercise.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
King Kong Lives is exactly the kind of 80's trash that could only come out of Dino de Laurentiis circa 1986. It clunks around with stale characters trying to make sense out of a movie that's got little else on its mind besides showing as much of the dreadful monkey suits as possible (in fact, it does score points for that!). The needless sequel of the laughable 1976 remake still could be considered a romance tale, though this time it ends not with tragedy but with a finale that features a little person in a zip-up Baby Kong outfit that's straight out of Land of the Lost. Linda Hamilton would be wise to forget this flop, as should acclaimed sci-fi movie scribe Ronald Shusett, whose name comes up once too many in the credits of this turd. On the plus side, the violence is hilariously gruesome, as when Kong kills a few hunters by literally breaking them in two or biting off their bloody limbs. Obvious cheese appeal is written all over King Kong Lives, which would be better news if it wasn't so daunting to have to sit through.
