Quotes

Native guides: Kong kong kong kong kong kong! Kong kong kong kong kong kong!
Ray Fay: They keep saying "Kong kong kong kong kong kong".
Luce Habit: Yes, that's true.
Ray Fay: Well, do you think this has some underlying meaning or symbolism or social significance?
Luce Habit: Perhaps it's a secret code.
Ray Fay: Maybe it's another language.
Luce Habit: Aha, you are clever. But since I speak all native languages and they speak Unga Bunga, a language popular in many old movies and the only language spoken on Lazanga where they do the Konga, I can safely say that "Kong kong ...

Yes, It Really Is That Bad

Queen Kong (1976)

BOMB (out of 4)

A tough female director is in the tough jungle with her tough female crew when the latest actor quits. She's able to find a man (Robin Askwith) who takes the lead role but once in the jungle the crew runs into a giant female ape. Sure enough, the ape falls for the man.

QUEEN KONG is a British production that was meant to try and make fun of the Dino De Laurentiis film KING KONG. This wasn't just your typical rip-off but the film also tried to be something like Monty Python and to say it failed would be an understatement. If you read around for reviews you'll see that there are many people out there who hate it like me. However, I think some of the reviews were quite unfair. As awful as the movie is I'd argue that it was at least semi well-made and it at least wasn't on the same level as something from Jerry Warren.

With that said, it was quite torturous to sit through this film because of how unfunny it is. I mean, there wasn't a single time throughout the film where I even cracked a smile. The worst thing about the movie is the fact that it's so darn annoying and that's especially true for the lead actor who is given some of the worst one-liners that you're ever going to hear. I'm not sure what type of drugs were being passed around by the screenwriters but whatever lines they wrote that they thought was funny just didn't come across on the screen.

Even with the comedy being so awful one would wish that they could at least have some fun with the monsters but that's not the case either. They all look incredibly cheap and awful but to be fair they're really no better or worse than the majority of the Godzilla movies that were made earlier in the decade. QUEEN KONG has an awful reputation and it really deserves it. The entire idea just really blows up in the viewers face and they're left with a really challenging movie to get through.
