The only reason why this isn't a 1 is because of the voice cast, both Dudley Moore and Jodi Benson do play Kong and Anne very well. However, the animation quality is very uneven, the colours are nice and Anne looks lovely but some of the other character designs are wonky and the backgrounds especially after the Skull Island sequence, sequentially the film's best bit, are shoddy. The story meanders at this point too, with subplots that unravel faster than a ball of wool and a romance that feels contrived in alternative to poignant, and when it came to the characters Carl's part is very corny and the cabin boy was completely unnecessary. While most of the dialogue is embarrassing being quite hackneyed, the musical numbers are where the film really falls down. Not only are they not needed but they are very dull and insipid, with Carl's number faring worst mostly because the lyrics were so gut-wrenchingly awful. After seeing this, I have changed my mind which is the worst King Kong movie(initially the 1976 movie), this takes the cake. 2/10 Bethany Cox
