After King Kong has laid half of New York to ruins (see King Kong), showman Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) finds himself on the run from a few hundred lawsuits, and before you know it, he finds himself on the high seas again, travelling the world on Captain Englehorn's (Frank Reicher) freighter - but somehow the two manage to earn not even a buck in the freight business, so when they meet Helstrom (John Marston), a desperate man on the run from the law, who tells them about a treasure on Kong Island, they are more than happy to return there - but Helstrom is so rotten, he tries to have them marooned on the island via a mutiny, but then is thrown off the ship by the very men he hoped to lead himself, along iwht stowaway Helene (Helen Mack), the very woman whose father (Clarence Wilson) he has murdered and the Chinese cook (Victor Wong).

On the island, our shipwrecked heroes (and villain) meet the son of Kong, who fights quite a few savage beasts, but whom Helene and Denham are able to befriend ... and then a volcano breaks out, and while Helstrom makes a cowardly escape and is killed by a dinosaur for it, the others heroically stick together, and when Denham almost dies saving the others, Kong gives his life to save Denham ...


King Kong is an undisputed classic, there is no doubt about that, but this hastily produced sequel is anything but: Admittedly, it starts out rather amusing with Denham trying to dodge all responsibility for what happened in the first movie, but then the whole set-up drags on and on, and we are already half-way through the movie before we even see Kong. Now this of course worked for the original King Kong because the wait for the monkey was part of teh build-up of audience expectations and suspense, but here it's more of a timewaster, as the story as such is rather obvious from square one. And when we see Kong for the first time, what a disappointment, he is not the force of nature his father was, but a good-natured pal to the lead couple who even speaks to them via gestures every now and again and who is allowed to die a hero's death in the end. Sure, his scenes are still well-made, but as much was to be expected, right?

In all though, I might have to point out this is not the worst film ever made, it's a somewhat entertaining (if totally pointless) B-picture, but nothing more, and certainly no worthy successor to King Kong.
