Product Description

From the Studio

A giant ape King Kong, which was shot and fell off the Empire State Building, appears to be alive, but is in coma for 10 years and desperately needs a blood transfusion in order to have an artificial heart implanted. Suddenly, in the rainforest, another gigantic ape is found - this time a female. She is brought to the USA, and the heart is successfully implanted. But then King Kong, having felt a female ape, breaks loose. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"King Kong Lives," the ads proclaimed loudly in December, 1986, "and he is NOT happy!" Filmgoers though, couldn't have been more thrilled, and stormed theaters en masse to see the great ape's return.
They weren't disappointed. Prior to the film's release, however, the naysayers were out in full force. After all, the 1976 KING KONG was an unassailable classic, a noble and poetic masterpiece, the most fantastic expression of Beauty & The Beast ever filmed. How could this new film expect to follow such a cherished, cultural and cinematic touchstone, and more importantly, how could it do anything but cheapen it's legacy?
All misgivings were quickly disspelled when the film finally hit the multiplexes. After a dramatic recounting of Kong's tumble from the World Trade Center at the end of the original film, (complete with cameos by stars Jeff Bridges and Jessica Lange, neither of whom appear to have aged a day), we fast-forward ten years later to discover Kong has indeed survived his plunge from New York's tallest skyscraper, and we find him comatose at a privately-funded research facility, awaiting a heart transplant...
I wouldn't dare give away more than that. Brimming with remarkable special-effects wizardry, KING KONG LIVES is a true entertainment spectacular and, in a rare feat, has become every bit as legendary as its illustrious predecessor. Even though Rick Baker chose not to don the monkeysuit for the sequel, it's virtually impossible to distinguish this ape from the '76 model, and that's as it should be. The near-documentary quality of the effects proved so convincing that many people reportedly ran screaming from the theater in shock and terror.

"King Kong Lives" is so boring that even pre-schoolers will probably get up and wander out of the room on this one to go play with a cardboard box or watch paint dry. It is one thing to make a sequel to a splatter flick where Michael/Jason/Freddy constantly comes back from the dead, but another thing to try and put the same trick with King Kong. Thousands of people die around the world each year because of heart attacks, but working on an artificial heart for a 50-foot ape who has been in a coma for ten years seemed like a good idea to heart specialist Amy Franklin (Linda Hamilton). Meanwhile, in the jungles of Borneo big game hunter Hank Mitchell (Brian Kerwin) finds a female Kong. This is good news because she can provide the blood Kong needs during the operation (let us all think about the world's biggest by-pass machine). Amy falls for Hank because they have so much in common, while the two apes do the same. Needing privacy, Kong and his love flee into the woods where the Army proceeds to hunt them down. The movie makes it seem like it only took the army a couple of days to hunt down two 50-foot apes running loose in the wild, but it must have been many, many months because when the Army catches up with them the female Kong is in labor.
This movie is jaw-droppingly bad. But given that Jessica Lange survived the original "King Kong" remake and Linda Hamilton had some success after this turkey, there is really no reason for any young actress to ever turn a role in one of these films, no matter how bad the script. King Kong's leading ladies do pretty well. The gap between the original "King Kong" and the remake is certainly a lot closer than "King Kong Lives" and the original sequel, "Son of Kong.

my sister and i watched this sequel to the 1976 version of KIng
Kong.and we actually both liked it.sure it's no masterpiece and i
didn't like it quite as much as King Kong,but i did find it
entertaining and fun.i felt it was on a smaller scope than KIng
Kong(1976) and less serious,on my opinion,but it wasn't half
bad.true,the dialogue won't win any awards,and the acting could have
been better,but there was plenty of action and excitement.the story is
bit of a stretch for sure,but if you don't take it too seriously,you
might enjoy it for what it is:an action packed,entertaining 90 minutes
or so.and it might make you forget about life for awhile.for me,King
Kong Lives is a 3.5/5

This sequel to the 1976 remake of King Kong is pure cheese, but very entertaining for monster fans! I found it more entertaining than King Kong (1976), and not as long and drawn out as the latter movie.
Highly recommended if you can get a copy of it.
