It starts like a regular drama about filmmakers looking for the perfect girl and the ideal natural set to exploit, and soon turns into an unexpected experience that borrows from many genres; sometimes mysterious, sometimes scary, as the story unfolds. This is a light horror film, at its core, about giant fantastical creatures inhabiting a remote island and about one of them in particular.
Extremely atmospheric, thanks to gorgeous backdrops, elaborate photography and mastered lighting, the film features a plot that is a surreal idealized depiction of filmmaking; a slightly comedic "movie within a movie". The monsters are animated by stop-motion. It is far from perfect but the film has a captivating story to tell and can't do it without breaking some eggs.
Of all the weird things you’ll find in the movie, there’s namely a subplot involving King Kong capturing a lady, undressing her and fighting to get her back when it loses its grasp on her. There is, indeed, a second degree to this feature. Unusually paced, King Kong is an adventure film that takes you out of your everyday life and throws you in a dream-like wilderness.
