  1. Aardsy's rating of the film Mighty Joe Young

    When in doubt, throw lions around.

  2. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Mighty Joe Young

    You can imagine a young Harryhausen, in awe at King Kong & saying "I'm going to do that but make it more fun!" From the very start, w/ a little girl & a baby ape, you can sense this was made for children in an attempt to inspire & delight a generation. The romance is forgettable but its a sheer delight with a creature that's easy to sympathize with (as usual in Harry's films). Light & simple fun is easily found here.

  3. TheotherJones's rating of the film Mighty Joe Young

    A solid 3.5. Not as good as Kong, but better than Son of Kong and the effects work here is really impressive.

  4. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Mighty Joe Young

    When I was a kid this was better than King Kong, then as years passed somehow Fay Wray got much more interesting than Terry Moore.

  5. Mark Ayala's rating of the film Mighty Joe Young

    Someone needs to change the image. It's from King Kong. Might Joe Young never fights a dinosaur.
