Kong: Skull Island revives the monster flick with humor, a decent story, and modern effects without sacrificing any fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Perhaps we have become impatient as an audience and directors are no longer keen to hold back, but sadly I feel the film was poorer for its immediate unveiling of the myriad of monsters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

A truly remarkable number of actors seem to be doing, if not their career-worst work, then at least work that they're well-capable of bettering.

This is a generic, tonally awkward monster showcase which forgets about both charm and heart, in its humans and King Kong himself.

It's fun, even if the movie ultimately exhausts itself.

Kong: Skull Island isn't a B-movie - but with its intentionally bad writing and jarring lack of cohesion, it lamely pretends to be one.

Filled with action and good visuals, this film is hilarious. [Full review in Spanish]

"Kong: Skull Island" isn't going to change your life. Nor can it hold a candle to the 1933 original. But there are some good thrills to be had here - and some good fun, too.

The humans, meanwhile, are largely left to stare in awe.

Kong: Skull Island gets what so many monster movies before it get wrong: There is humanity in the creatures, even if they can seem gigantic and monstrous at first.
May 5, 2017
What's fatal to this movie is that it lacks visionary gusto.

"Kong: Numbskull Island" is more like it.

An especially awful Hollywood blockbuster...

A game of cat and mouse, in which the rodents are replaced by helicopters falling in pairs at the hands of an enraged Kong. [Full review in Spanish]

Perfectly treads the line between big budget VFX cinema & b-grade exploitation.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 5, 2017
What could have been a suspense film, ends up being a B cinema production, with lowly plotted characters, stupid motivations and a Kong who still urges a girlfriend to reveal his nobility. [Full review in Spanish]

The film has colorful special effects that, in fact, stop being colorful when one realizes that they are nothing more than that: special effects without a story. A disaster. [Full review in Spanish]

Skull Island, for a lot of reasons, shouldn't work-until, suddenly, it does. (Splice Today)

"Kong: Skull Island" is a neutered adventure movie without any soul, or balls.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
March 28, 2017
At the end of it all, the picture's only real saving grace is John C. Reilly as a castaway WWII airman who lands a few one-liners the way that only Reilly can, while off-setting the general shittiness of the rest of the human interaction.
