Best. Kong. Ever.
Full Review | Original Score: A
December 28, 2017
This is one movie that absolutely demands to be seen on the big screen, preferably with the full glasses effect, yet is solid enough entertainment to stand on its own in 2D as well.

... Kong: The Skull Island is not as emotional, or epic, as its predecessors. [Full review in Spanish]
December 18, 2017
What the film lacks in plot, tension, dialogue and fully realized characters, it makes up for with some fantastic visuals.
December 18, 2017
What starts out as a potentially fun and cliche-less way to do an action movie turns into another watered-down origin story of a franchise.
December 4, 2017
It's relentless in its catastrophic, seismic destruction (even containing moderately interesting and likable human characters), and anyone who isn't taken aback by it should check their pulse
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

That's not to say there's nothing good here. There is - it just could've been so much better.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
November 25, 2017
It may not match the original classic but the fast-paced story holds its own.

... the most interesting thing about the Jordan Vogt-Roberts film is not in the fable but in the entertainment produced by each action sequence... [Full review in Spanish]
October 28, 2017
And while Kong isn't all over the film he appears enough to remind you who's King. The action is intense and the special effects are well done.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Kong: Skull Island is a film that underwhelms in nearly every department.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 15, 2017
KING KONG: SKULL ISLAND is an entertaining B-movie with first-rate special effects and expertly staged action
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 14, 2017
But the MVP is John C. Reilly as Marlow, who was stranded on Skull Island after crash-landing there in World War II. Reilly 100% understands the movie he's in and every bit of Kong that works that doesn't involve monsters works because of Reilly.
September 20, 2017
The fights between Kong and his foes are epic and exciting - enough to make this creature feature just that little bit more special.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 18, 2017
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
September 15, 2017
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
September 11, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
September 5, 2017
This is a generic, tonally awkward monster showcase which forgets about both charm and heart, in its humans and King Kong himself.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 22, 2017
It's fun, even if the movie ultimately exhausts itself.
August 10, 2017
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.
