What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that King Kong has many violent scenes that could be scary for younger viewers, as well as plenty of action. Specifically, humans are attacked on the island by giant bugs, bats, and dinosaurs in sustained, pounding action scenes. Kong shifts from scary (chest-pounding and roaring) to sympathetic; he's attacked brutally by men in tanks and planes, shooting guns. Characters drink and smoke cigarettes; Ann wears a slip through most of her adventures on the island. Most troubling is the depiction of the black island natives, who appear as nightmarish, surreal images, chanting and shaking when they sacrifice Ann to Kong. The showbiz version of this scene (re-created in New York) uses blackface performers. Occasional mild profanity: "crap," "hell," "Christ," "goddamn."
