U can split the flic in 2 parts. The first half of it is really good. Especially the performance of the actors is really way to go! As soon as they arrive at Skull Island, the plot kind of blacks out. From then on, only CGI action. Too bad. I cannot really recommend to watch it today. The CGI is not really up to date for latest standards (2017).
I consider it to be Peter Jackson's crowning achievement. He took a classic and really made it his own. His Skull Island is one that will truly petrify you. The cinematography throughout the film is just spectacular. (First and only viewing - 9/9/2014)
Peter Jackson retell the story of this giant ape trapped on a mysterious island and being brought back to the main land by a film crew. It's fast, well written, no dead time, great CGI & special effects. The cast is really great and the film a great success... in my opinion better than the 1933 original but if i say that some people might skin me alive, so keep it for yourself.
