Review: Kong: Skull Island

Kong is back, and he is still KING!
I can already tell what you're thinking, 'Do we really need another Kong movie?'
I get that. King Kong has been over played so many times, and no one can believe that a big monkey could fall in love with a women or vice versa. I wouldn't uncount this movie just yet.

If you saw Godzilla back in 2014, then you might be in the right mind set to see Kong: Skull Island. As action packed as Godzilla was, Kong: Skull Island is filled with so much more that you might not be wanting to leave any time during the movie in fair of missing something or FOMK, Fear of Missing Kong.

I'm sure by now you've already heard the cast line up for this movie but let me make sure I high light the big names, as they alone are enough to get you to the box office for Kong: Skull Island. The major names include Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly, and John Goodman.

John C Reilly was the comic relief you need in this movie. With all the action stuff going on in the movie, it's best to have someone as funny as John C Reilly to lighten the audience up, so we can catch our breathe for the next action battle Kong must face.

The IMAX is something I wouldn't worry about. As it is a nice feature to have while watching this movie, there is so much action in the movie that it won't matter if it's in IMAX, 3D, or just with your regular eyes.

Stay till the end of the credits to see a special scene.

  6. With the influence of Legendary Entertainment (China) this movie sequel morphed into something similar to a Godzilla movie, and didn't stand true to the story of Kong, thus fell way short of what the previous Kong movies had to offer. Totally disappointed - 1 Star.

  15. I guess I should give this one a chance. When I first saw the previews I was like Oh no another one but it seems to have done well so far in the box office.

    I've been a huge fan of King Kong movies since I was a kid, and this one is definitely my favorite. Kong himself makes it a great movie, but I really enjoyed Samuel L. Jackson's character going against Kong as well. It was very well-done

    King Kong has been one of my favorite movies since I was a kid.

    The 1933 and 1976 versions are just beyond compare. I was worried that Skull Island would not live up to it's predecessors but my worries were soon alleviated. The action and adventure were incredible and the visuals were amazing. I love, love loved this movie!
