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]
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.
I've got no quarrel with a good, goofy monster movie - I'm the guy who liked 'The Great Wall.' But that film at least felt bound by a singular vision, by a director and his personality. 'Kong: Skull Island' is spare parts, held together with Scotch tape.
Not only the most exhilarating e-ticket ride since 'Mad Max Fury Road,' it's almost as exciting as the RKO original, thanks to expertly orchestrated cliff-hangers and the scariest CG beasties since 'Jurassic Park'
The great ape called Kong first hit the big screen in 1933. IMAX technology has been around since 1970. Now, in 2017, the two have joined forces, and the result almost makes a good movie. Well, half a good movie.
