Cinema Fiasco: King Kong Lives
Starring: Brian Kerwin, Linda Hamilton, Peter Elliott, John Ashton, Peter Michael Goetz
In this thrilling sequel to the 1976 remake, it turns out King Kong didn’t die after falling off the World Trade Centre but rather ended up on life support in a university science department. Following an artificial heart transplant – and a blood transfusion from the newly discovered Lady Kong – the big ape is up and about in no time – and, with a new lady in his life, falling in love! Probably the stupidest Kong movie but definitely the funniest, with hilarious scenes of gorilla-suited stuntmen tossing Tonka trucks around miniature sets, Kong munching on alligators and a posse of rednecks, and romantic interludes between Kerwin and Hamilton that are even sillier than the ones between Kong and his mate. The heart transplant scene is especially compelling.
