King Kong Escapes

 (1967)

King Kong Escapes Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A Colossal Battle Between Two King Kongs! It's King Kong to the rescue when a giant robot threatens to destroy Tokyo in the gripping King Kong Escapes! The action begins when the conniving Dr. Who builds a robot Kong in order to retrieve a highly radioactive element for his mysterious benefactor, Madame X. When the robot proves less than reliable, the devious duo scheme to kidnap the real Kong from his remote island home of Mondo. Interfering with their plans are the heroic trio of U.S. Cmdr. Carl Nelson, Lt. Jiro Nomura, and Kong's current crush, Lt. Susan Miller. It's up to them to outwit the greedy ape-nappers in this sci-fi adventure that takes Kong to unprecedented heights of excitement.

For more about King Kong Escapes and the King Kong Escapes Blu-ray release, see King Kong Escapes Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

King Kong Escapes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

As is the case with King Kong vs. Godzilla, print damage is the real monster of King Kong Escapes. Scratches, nicks, specks, top-edge tape marks and other distractions pop up on a regular basis, and with a bit more frequency than in Kong vs. Godzilla. Crush takes a slight toll too, although I'm happy to report there aren't many other issues of note. Grain isn't quite as refined and natural as it is in KvG, but any noise reduction that's been utilized appears to have been employed judiciously. Smearing and waxiness aren't a problem; the grain itself is just somewhat pulpier. That said, colors are more vibrant, skintones warmer, primaries stronger, blacks levels a bit deeper, and contrast more eye-popping. Detail is quite impressive too, with crisp edges, pleasing textures and an overall clarity that, at least for the time being, makes this the definitive presentation of the film. Now if only something could be done about the print damage without sacrificing the integrity of the image. That, of course, would require an investment, though; an investment Universal isn't likely to grant an obscure 1960s King Kong pseudo-sequel. Even so, I didn't expect to be so impressed. If it weren't for all the print damage, my score would be higher.


King Kong Escapes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

King Kong vs. Godzilla and King Kong Escapes offer comparable English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 tracks, neither of which is all that problematic or remarkable. Dialogue is generally clean and clear, minus the usual tininess, ringing and prioritization mishaps that tend to be an inherent part of the sound designs of low-budget 1960s cinema. Effects are relatively weighty too, although I would have liked to see a more invigorating 5.1 remix (with booming LFE support and assertive rear speaker activity) alongside the original audio mix. Still, both tracks get the job done without major incident.
