Who is the real monster? The man or the beast?
Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
Writers: Dan Gilroy, Max Borenstein and Derek Connolly
Length: approx. 118 minutes
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Kong: Skull Island is the second, after Godzilla that came out in 2014, of a series of new monster movies centred on giant super-species, both classic and new, and if the film about the Japanese lizard was a bit of a let down (or so we've heard), we can’t say the same about Kong. Wowing audiences and getting mostly positive reviews (because haters gonna hate), Skull Island is the gorilla
What follows is an amazeballs adventure for the whole family – Kong: Skull Island might be PG12 but it still has plenty of epic fights and explosions for the boys, eye candy bonanza for the ladies, and even a few pretty sweet deaths for who's into sick stuff (me!) like the one that reminded me of Cannibal Holocaust and a repeat of a classic Oldboy scene, acting wise everyone was on point and not a single complaint, special shoutout to Kong himself (you'd think a CGI great ape wouldn't be able to project emotions), not to mention the seriously groovy soundtrack, many laugh out loud moments, and also one or two tears... But that might be only me.
