Kong Skull Island is just another bad remake
I am a fan of monster movies. Even though the formula can be simple if done right they can be an entertaining film. I have seen my share of King Kong films so I was looking forward to seeing Kong Skull Island. It was not what I thought it was going to be. I was able to see this movie early and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Kong Skull Island here:
When a scientific expedition to an uncharted island awakens titanic forces of nature, a mission of discovery becomes an explosive war between monster and man. Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman and John C. Reilly star in a thrilling and original new adventure that reveals the untold story of how Kong became King.
I was pretty disappointed in Kong Skull Island. The film has a very strong cast and the visual effects are quite amazing. I had some issues with this film though. What bugged me pretty much the whole way through was just how dumb these characters were. If someone says stay out of an area or don’t do this, maybe you should listen to them. As this movie gets towards the end it got really predictable which hurts it a lot. This film does have a good sound track that fits the era like a glove. There were a few interesting surprises yet not enough to make this a good reboot. If you want to learn more about Kong Skull Island click on this website.
Kong Skull Island gets 4/10. This really was not that great of a movie. I wanted to like it, but I just couldn’t. There is a lot of needless death and too many scenes that drag this film down. Some viewers may like it but it is not a film you need to run out and see this weekend.
