This version of King Kong is loaded with 70's camp, but that's a big part of its appeal. It's not as campy as something like Cannonball Run (which came out in 1981), but you can tell that the story and its actors were having fun while poking at greedy companies and sensationalist promoters.

Much like the 2005 version made by Peter Jackson, this movie creates a relationship between the beauty and the beast, and you find yourself sympathizing with the plight of an animal taken from its natural habitat for corporate gain.

Don't expect high drama. Don't expect contemporary special effects and enjoy it for what it was at its release. (The same thing can be said for the 2005 version) I think it's a great installment and stands well on its own.
