As visually great as you would expect one of these movies to be though the story is also what you would expect with an interesting 'connection' to the Vietnam War....

Kong Skull Island is a movie about a group scientists who are being protected by military personnel lead under the command of Preston Packard, and their tracker, James Conrad. The group is on a journey to an uncharted island in the Pacific but, unluckily for them this will not be an easy journey. After arriving onto the island, the group realizes they are not alone as they are “greeted” by Kong who manages to destroy a few of the group’s helicopters. The group is split up and now they must rendezvous with each other, all while staying alive, which will not be a simple task as Kong is not the only danger on the island. Kong Skull Island was a good movie and I enjoyed watching it. The movie had comedic moments, good fight scenes, some swearing here and there, and a lot of blood. I would rate this film 4/5.

Great re-envisioning of a classic movie. Although my standard is the Jack Black one so.... my view isn't coming from a classical perspective.
Can't wait to see Godzilla vs. BA KONG!

Good effects for kids and adults.
The very first version of Kong was the best.

Good visual effects, nothing special story wise but a decent movie if you like the action/adventure genre.

Good old fashioned adventure/monster movie. Beautiful scenery, great animation, a few laughs and lots of action. I would totally recommend this for a Saturday night popcorn flick.

A rather gory and simple movie, the only redeeming qualities being the "good", or moral, characters (James, Mason, and Hank) and the effects. Still fun to watch, though.

This is an action movie that capitalizes on visual special effects and pays almost no attention to giving a quality story. Is it my imagination or did the female photographers (upper body) anatomy get bigger as the movie progressed? It seemed to me that it did.

Hank Marlow: Hey, what happened with the war? Did we win?

James Conrad: Which one?

Hank Marlow: Uh-huh. That makes sense.

Hank Marlow: Kong's a pretty good king. Keeps to himself, mostly. This is his home, we're just guests. But you don't go into someone's house and start dropping bombs, unless you're picking a fight.
