THE PLOT:

Godzilla escapes his prison of ice and goes on a new rampage. Meanwhile, searching for a plant that can put people to sleep. They find the legendary island of King Kong.

When Godzilla attacks Tokyo the head of the Pharisaical Company decides to capture Kong in order to make him fight Godzilla.

Now the battle of the century is about to begin! To my left weighing in at several hundred tons Godzilla and to my right, also weighing several hundred tons. The King of Kong island. KING KONG. LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Okay, this has got to be my least favorite Godzilla movie of all time. I read in an article several years back that they were going to have Frankenstein take Godzilla on, and with the storyline they came up with to make the Frankenstein monster grow to gigantic size, it would have worked. King Kong was only fifty to sixty feet tall. Which makes him too small to fight Godzilla. Kong should have been staring Godzilla in the knees. Plus, what's with the electrisity, Kong never had Electrisity powers before? The effects were an improvement from the last two and I give it....2 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree, this is the second worst Godzilla movie ever. The worst had to been GODZILLA RAIDS AGAIN or GIGANTIS THE FIRE MONSTER. Yup, that was worst, the only Godzilla movie I would give the NOOSE to, but not this one. The effects have been improved and the fight scenes as well. So for that I give KING KONG VS. GODZILLA....1 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ IMPROVED EFFECTS (The technology improved for Godzilla, not Kong)
+ IMPROVED FIGHT SCENES (We'll tell you how it's improved when you read out coming review of GODZILLA RAIDS AGAIN..coming soon)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- TOO SHORT (Kong is only fifty feet tall, sixty at the most. Godzilla is over 150 tall.)
- PUPPET (King Kong still looked like a poorly made handpuppet)
- ELECTRIC POWERS (Last time I looked it was Electrisity that helped Godzilla and should hurt the giant ape.)
- STORY (The story was kind of lame)

AND FINALLY.....

- NOT FOR EVERYONE (If you aren't big on giant monsters, this isn't for you.)
