King Kong 1999 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Before John Hughes claimed the mantle of Hollywood’s antichrist, that title was firmly held by producer Dino De Laurentiis, whose middle name may have been “hubris.” He vowed that this remake of the 1933 horror classic would be a bigger hit than Jaws and that his Kong would be more sympathetic than the shark. But for all the money he spent on trying to make this monkey look real, the biggest special effect was making Jeff Bridges look like a monkey—and nearly destroying Jessica Lange’s acting career before it started. The film was noteworthy mostly for how cheesy the ape looks, though this was one of the first films to be shot at the then-new World Trade Center. Even Charles Grodin, as the villainous promoter, can’t get laughs in this idiotic film. —Marshall Fine
