A submarine for the UN commandeered by Rhodes Reason is searching for large oil supply in the Southern Pacific, but when they, due to the damages of a seaquake, have to land on a deseted island instead, they discover the fabled giant gorilla King Kong instead, who battles a dinosaur (Gorosaurus, as it would later come to be known among fans) & a sea serpent, & takes an almost instant liking in the sub's nurse Linda Miller. Meanwhile at the North Pole, evil scientist Doctor Who (no connection to the popular tv-character whatsoever, here played by Eisei Amamoto) has created a giant a giant robot-replica of the ape, Mechani Kong, who he wants to sell to Madame Piranha (Mie Hama), ruler of a yet unknown country, which could however, with sufficient quantity of Element X, rule the world - & this is where Mechani Kong fits in, for the roboape is supposed to dig for the element. Unfortunately though, the robot is unable to withstand the radioactivity of Element X (!). King Kong, onb the other hand, has no such problem (!!), so Doctor Who abducts him to the North Pole to have him dig under hypnosis. However, this plan doesn't work out quite that well either, since Kong shows a surprisingly strong will, which leads Doctor Who to abduct Linda Miller (Kong's love interest) along with Rhodes Reason & Akira Takarada (the sub's second in command), too. Of course, not everything goes according to Doctor Who's plans now neither, & somehow the giant ape, his robot replica, our heroic trio from the submarine, Madame Piranha & Doctor Who & his goons all end up in Tokyo, where, after massive havoc, King Kong & Mechani Kong duke it out atop the Tokyo Tower. Guess who wins !

 

To compare this movie to 1933's King Kong would be dead wrong, this is more of a fun-trash moviethat has no deeper meaning but appeals to the child in us, that just loves plasticmonsters wrestle & wreak havoc to cities. & quite in accordance to that, this King Kong's relationship with his Kong-girl Linda Miller has little in common with the one Kong had wioth Fay Wray, Miller always seems rather game to his shenanigans, talks to him like you would talk to a stubborn child or a puppy (best quote: "Go after that Ship !"), & generally would show inapropriate reactions to all the goings-on anyways - she actually looks more like a jhappy-go-lucky girl at an amusement park, always contemplating the next exciting ride (even if it is being carried up the Tokyo Tower by a robot ape).

Madame Piranha actress Mie Hama by the way was the Kong girl of Kingu Kongu tai Gojira of 1962 as well as the Bond girl of You only Live Twice (1966).
