King Kong vs. Godzilla

 (1962)

King Kong vs. Godzilla Blu-ray offers solid video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

An exploration team discovers a lost tribe of savages and their god, a giant ape on a tropical island. They bring the monster to Japan just in time to fight Godzilla, who has appeared out of an iceberg.

For more about King Kong vs. Godzilla and the King Kong vs. Godzilla Blu-ray release, see King Kong vs. Godzilla Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

King Kong vs. Godzilla Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Print damage is the real monster of King Kong vs. Godzilla. Scratches, nicks, specks, top-edge tape marks, thin vertical lines and other distractions pop up on a semi-regular basis, particularly when the cameras cut away to sequences centered around either creature. Crush takes a slight toll too, although I'm pleased to report there aren't many other issues of note, other than perhaps the unevenness that sometimes affects the grain. And yes, you read that correctly: grain. Rather than make a feeble attempt to eliminate print damage and other inconsistencies with heavy-handed noise reduction (as is often Universal's practice when approaching a catalog title), the studio presents a rather faithful video presentation. It isn't a top-dollar remaster along the lines of a higher profile Warner release, mind you, but it preserves the filmmakers' intentions and strongly resembles film, and each one goes a long way. Optical softness is present throughout, but smearing and waxiness aren't a part of the image. Crisp edges, reasonably well-resolved textures and an overall boost in clarity are the norm, and the movie has never looked better. Skintones and colors are also decently saturated given the overcast, blue-leaning palette, even if a dusty veil of gray haunts Kong and Godzilla's climactic tussle. I have to admit I didn't expect to be impressed with this one. If it weren't for all the print damage, my score would be higher.


King Kong vs. Godzilla 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.
