Which King Kong movies are classics, and which should have never left the island? Here's every King Kong movie ranked worst to best!
With a 0 percent Tomatometer score, King Kong Lives is the worst King Kong movie, and it's also in the running for "Worst Movie Ever." Released ten years after Dino De Laurentiis' King Kong in 1976, King Kong Lives is the sequel nobody wanted to the remake nobody asked for, with none of the stars from the first film and a fraction of the budget. Turns out King Kong survived his nearly 2,000-foot fall from atop the World Trade Center, but he needs an artificial heart to survive. If that isn't bizarre enough, the film also features Kong courting a female Kong.
We can understand that De Laurentiis wanted to make a sequel, albeit ten years after anyone cared, but was this really the best they could do? King Kong Lives came out 53 years after the original King Kong, and yet its special effects are less convincing. While King Kong's stop-motion animation was groundbreaking, King Kong Lives opted for the more primitive filmmaking technique of putting a man in a gorilla suit. It's little wonder King Kong Lives was a Raspberry Award nominee for "Worst Special Effects."King Kong Lives bombed with $4.7 million worldwide, effectively killing off the character for 20 years.
