Thrilling family fun.

... a frustrating cartoon of a movie...

An old-fashioned adventure film that ranks with the best of the genre.
King Kong has never looked so ... drowsy. Sleepy, boring tale of kind-hearted gorilla gets old real quick, but with Charlize Theron though, Disney proves men can have dirty thoughts while their children are entertained. Hooray Charlize!
A family film about the heroics of a gorilla trying to stay alive in the face of human greed and violence.
-Frederic and Mary Ann BrussatFull Review
So slavishly formulaic, so deprived of an any inspiration of any kind, that it very well could have been written by a monkey.

King Kong light. Insipid Joe Young. Just because this film is rated PG doesn't mean it has to be written on the level of an orangutan.

Never get into a movie where you play opposite an animal, right? They should have listened.

likely to please fans of the 1949 film as well as delight younger viewers who've never heard of the simian hero before.

Middlin' monkey business with Charlize Theron.

The filmmakers forgot about the adults who pay to bring the target audience to the multiplex.
