Kong's design was intentionally goofy in order to make him less frightening to children/look friendlier. The design just didn't translate too well to suit form (Disproportionate arms, lack of face articulation, etc.), even if I do appreciate what they were going for. The only other effects I would consider "bad" are some of the more overt splicing/blue screen shots, but I HIGHLY doubt those were intentional. The rest of the film's effects are either on-par with Toho's other stuff or above-average.
