A rushed and unnecessary sequel. The more comedic tone is jarring and doesn't fit the material.

The scene where a bored-looking band of monkeys perform as a pretend band while a bored-looking audiences gazes boredly on is so meta, as if Schoedsack knew he was making a boring movie for people to watch in boredom until finally FINALLY a big gorilla comes out but by then I'm so BORED it's too late and im bored of writing about it too

I'd like to score this higher just for being insanely daring & doing something different (the screenwriter admitted she didn't think the first one could be topped, so she made a comedy), but only kids are likely to find this funny & they won't be able to sit through the first 40 monster-free minutes. & is it me or do the creature efx look worse? & am I really supposed to be that invested in Denham running away from all the lawsuits, destruction & death created by his hubris the last time around?

Son of Kong is bad, but it's certainly the best sequel to King Kong they could have rushed out. It's nowhere near the tonal masterpiece that was the original, but the familiar face of Denham was nice to see. This, combined with the nostalgic stop-motion help the case for this film, even if the effects are a little dated and not as good as the original. It's not a masterpiece, but it could be worth your time if you liked the original.

The follow up to the now iconic "King Kong"(1933) was rushed into theaters that very same year to capitalize on the film's success, and sadly for fans of the original it feels that way. The sequel was unable to properly repeat the master quality and craftsmanship of the visual effects seen in the original, although understandably under the circumstances. The movie attempts to offset the loss of spectacle with humor, and as a fun adventure comedy the film is solid B-movie entertainment.
