king Kong verses Godzilla is a hilarious clash between two monster icons,the Japanese with their;Godzilla(aka;gojira)and for Americans; king Kong.even if its an actor in a monkey suit,originally i heard that in the Japanese version Godzilla wins the battle.not so after i've seen every Godzilla movie i notice the big g always returns. and he did in the next sequel;Godzilla verses the thing(mothra) since universal had released the American version,they used the music from their monster films,like the wolfman,the creature,etc;early on Kong battles a giant octopus(they filmed a real octopus and also used a rubber stand in )Godzilla of course after surviving being buried in ice cubes from the previous,Godzilla raids again(aka;gigantis, the fire monster)an entertaining monster movie from the sixties.a classic from the abundant toho studios and the home of classic monsters,universal.7 out of 10.
