Kong falls from the twin towers and he appears to be alive. However, his heart is failing, so it's replaced with an artificial one. All is well until he senses that there's a female Kong somewhere out there and escapes wreaking havoc.
A film crew goes to a tropical island for an exotic location shoot and discovers a colossal ape who takes a shine to their female blonde star. He is then captured and brought back to New York City for public exhibition.
King Kong is brought in by an evil ruler to dig for precious gems in a mine when the robot MechaKong is unable to do the task. This leads to the machine and the real Kong engaging in a tremendous battle that threatens to level Japan.
In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to the mysterious Skull Island, where they encounter Kong, a giant ape who is immediately smitten with leading lady Ann Darrow.
A giant ape King Kong, which was shot and fell off the World Trade Center tower, appears to be alive, but is in coma for 10 years and desperately needs a blood transfusion in order to have an artificial heart implanted. Suddenly, in the rainforest, another gigantic ape is found - this time a female. She is brought to the USA, and the heart is successfully implanted. But then King Kong, having sensed the female ape, breaks loose. Written by

Peter Michael Goetz's cheque for post release royalties came to 3 cents. He has it stapled to the film poster in his house, having never cashed it. See more »
Kong's chest looks pretty great for somebody who was shot to oblivion with machine guns and had open heart surgery. Not even a scar. See more »
Dr. Andrew Ingersoll:
That cost this institute seven million dollars!
Dr. Benson Hughes:
She knows how much it costs. She's been a part of it since we first got Kong's heart resuscitated.
There's nothing wrong with the heart. The damn thing runs like a Swiss watch. It's his blood.

Kong! Yes! How many "King Kong" movies can there be in a single movie's...I can't think of a word for this! "King Kong Lives" is an exciting movie in the "King Kong" franchise that had the whole world remember the big ape on top of the Empire State Building for over 70 years! I have yet to see the 1933 version, the 2005 version, and even the 1976 version, but this movie is so great, it shows the tension built from watching these big ape movies! I wish I was a big ape, because this movie has a female version of King Kong! How great is that? It sure felt great for King Kong, too! Watch the 1933 version, the 1976 version, this 1986 version, and best of all, watch the 2005 version of the "King Kong" movies and you'll be thrilled!
