Boy did I enjoy this film.
forget plot and logic. This is an all out creature feature...It is called Skull Island because that's where the action takes place with all the neat creatures.
There is a LOT of screen time devoted to Kong and the monsters. And LOTS of cool death scenes. Pretty gory, in my opinion, and surprised this got a pg-13. Some scenes would be very frightening for little ones.
Most surprisingly, it is the the acting of John Goodman and J.C. Riley that stands out - even overshadowing tom Hiddleston. I am not a big fan of Goodman or Riley, so this really surprised me.
For the plot - people go to Skull Island. They encounter Kong and various giant monsters. Mayhem and death ensues. Some return home. The end.
Doesn't sound like much but the monster scenes really made the movie, and Kong was fantastic. They really had him move - he was almost like a giant Hulk smashing those airplanes!
Oh, and PLEASE stay after the credits. What was shown put a BIG smile on my face... No spoilers.. you have to see it for yourself.
My wife and I had a blast. The first 20 minutes were regrettably lame, but the rest of the movie was a hoot.
8 out of 10 for fun factor.

Boy did I enjoy this film.
So it is like Ghostbusters 2016 all over again. On the day of releaseof another unrequested, unwanted, unappealing reboot a whole bunch ofaccounts appear and write super duper positive reviews. Well, they areall fake. Although these fake reviewers are getting more'sophisticated.' Look at tvsweeney-39052 for example, the account wascreated several months ago and give Village Road Show and Columbiareleases all 10/10, but has thrown in a couple of bad reviews of otherstudios' releases in the interim.
This movie sucks. The unoriginality stinks to high heaven The tokenChinese cow to satisfy Chinese investors and Chinese ticket sales isbeyond useless and cannot act and Kong is not even Kong (they don'teven want to call him King because he is so off). This is one of thosestandard cliché films where the grown up audience knows after 5minutes, that the target group is hacks. Even in the middle of thefilm's major actions scene, the whole logic pauses, as two supposedlycool characters have to talk, run and get into danger and make theaudience yawn, because it is just so bad.
Unlike many fantasy films, this film is not interesting at all. If someyoung script writer thought that it would be "cool" for a remote islandto be "interesting", then the accountants at the studio would writethis script for him.
I had a free AMC preview of the movie on March 1st, 2017. My husband is not a fan of some of the actors in this film BUT he loves KONG! So, during the movie I felt he was enjoying it. I'm not going to give away anything because I hate when people do that; all I will say is the skull crawlers gave me a nightmare and the entire movie from start to finish was really really good.
The plot was good, the acting was outstanding. I really felt I was in the 70's. The music in the movie was dead on perfect.
Hope you go out and support this movie because I am sick of remakes and this is NOT one of them, This movie stands alone by itself! A MUST SEE...
Stay to the very end...
