Movie Reviews

Boston Globe - 8/10 by Jay CarrMighty Joe Young is not meek and harmless; it's a full-blooded action picture, all right, but with a certain warmth and humor instead of a scorched-earth approach. You feel good at the end, instead of merely relieved.
Miami Herald - 8/10 by Howard CohenMighty Joe Young is wholesome, well-crafted family fare like Hollywood used to make.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger EbertMighty Joe Young is not meek and harmless; it's a full-blooded action picture, all right, but with a certain warmth and humor instead of a scorched-earth approach. You feel good at the end, instead of merely relieved.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Peter StackMighty Joe Young is a mighty fun movie. The trick? They didn't try to out-monster those bloated King Kong and Godzilla franchises. But it's still a hoot of an adventure about an overgrown ape having trouble adjusting to life in California.
ReelViews - 8/10 by James BerardinelliJoe is a masterpiece of special effects wizardry, looking more real than any giant primate ever to walk across the silver screen. By combining animatronics, computer-generated images, and a man in a costume, Mighty Joe Young creates a compelling illusion.
Los Angeles Times - 7/10 by Jack MathewsMighty Joe Young may be the season's most appealing family bet. Certainly, it has an appealing cast.
Variety - 7/10 by Lael LoewensteinMighty Joe Young is wholesome, well-crafted family fare like Hollywood used to make.
The A.V. Club - 7/10 by Keith PhippsIt's all a little silly, and silly in a way that's less fun than the original—due in part to an obvious subplot involving a poacher played by a hammy Peter Firth—but its kid-friendly B-movie charm and the peerless Mr. Young make it worthwhile, undemanding entertainment.
New Orleans Times-Picayune - 6/10 by David BaronNeat as Joe looks, you do wish that someone had bothered to give him a personality.
TV Guide Magazine - 5/10 by Maitland McDonaghJoe himself is an amazing creation, less personable, to be sure, than the original lovelorn King Kong, but a far more fully realized character than any of the flesh and blood humans by whom he's surrounded.
