Brief Synopsis

In this remake of the 1933 classic about the giant ape, this time an oil company expedition disturbs the peace of Kong and brings him back to New York to exploit him. Although a woman in the group tames Kong somewhat, he finally breaks loose and terrorizes the city, and as the military attempt to stop him, he falls to his death from the top of the World Trade Center.
