A kid friendly animated remake of King Kong
12 July 1999 | by qeditorSee all my reviews

This film has everything that kids could want...a fun musical score and enough action to hold their interest. In these days of even G rated films containing questionable scenes/language, its a relief to see something that is safe and fun.
