The New York TimesGlenn Collins
The film does offer some witty opening scenes depicting Carl Denham hounded by creditors following Kong's Gotham rampage. But the remainder of the film is sometimes laughably bad, and much of the dialogue is dated in a way that is not charming at all. [20 Sept 1987, p.36]
