King Kung Fu ★ 1987 (G)

A karate master raises a gorilla, and sends it from Asia to the U.S. There, two out-of-work reporters decide to release it from captivity and then recapture it so they can get the story and some needed recognition. The background they don't have on the gorilla is that its master taught it kung fu. 90m/C VHS, DVD . John Balee, Tom Leahy, Maxine Gray, Bill Schwartz; D: Bill Hayes.
