When his heart begins to fail, scientists engineer an artificial heart, and a giant female ape is captured to serve as a source for a blood transfusion. When Kong awakens following his heart transplant, he senses the nearby presence of the female ape and the two escape to wreak havoc together.

Crappy Reviews No Surprise, But…
The decidedly crappy reviews heaped on this film were pretty well deserved, though it must be said that there have been much worse insults to filmgoers’ intelligence than “King Kong Lives.” Linda Hamilton stars as Amy Franklin, head of a scientific team that develops an artificial heart to miraculously keep Kong with us after his famous fall from the New York City skyline. With the help of blood transfused from a newly-discovered Lady Kong, the big guy is soon up and around and eating people again. But this time his true interest lay in his new girlfriend, whom he not-so-subtly rescues from captivity. The hairy couple hope to live happily ever after, but the brutish army and rifle-bearing yokels have other ideas.
It’s difficult to pinpoint the biggest fault of “King Kong Lives.” Overall, it’s pretty ridiculous, from the story to the special effects to the supposedly emotional moments. It’s overlong, the dialog could have been written by junior high kids, and the characters, particularly the “bad guys,” are so one-dimensional it’s not even funny. But if you can accept all of that, you can get at least some entertainment value out of this sequel, though don’t expect a so-bad-it’s-funny picture.
This should have deep sixed Linda Hamilton’s acting career BUT…
… it wasn’t all her fault. The script is just bad and at points, nonsensical. WHY would you want to bring King Kong back when he wreaked havoc on New York City in the last film? The last film is 1976’s King Kong ,which I am sure Jessica Lange would love to forget is in her filmography, so she was probably one of the few people happy about this one being worse than the King Kong film that she was in.
The basis of the film is that King Kong has been in a coma and needs a heart transplant. In order to do that transplant, blood is needed. Lots of it. So enter “Lady Kong”, the female equivalent of King Kong. She is used as a donor in the operation, but then Kong “smells” her scent, escapes with Lady Kong, and complications ensue.
Worst line of the film – “We are primates too” uttered by Ms. Hamilton herself. Supposed to initiate a romantic moment, it just put me into convulsions of laughter. Siskel and Ebert deemed it the worst film of 1986, and having to watch junk like this possibly contributed to shortening both of their lives. But I digress.
As for Linda Hamilton? She unimaginably did just fine after this stink bomb, starring in the at least temporarily very popular “Beauty and the Beast” TV series for a couple of years, and then having a leading role in the second Terminator film which turned out to be a monster money maker in 1991, in spite of her still terrible acting. I don’t know folks, I think voodoo had to be involved in her continued success.
Avoid this one unless you are in the mood for some Rifftrax worthy film watching.
