An especially awful Hollywood blockbuster...
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
April 17, 2017
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]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 16, 2017
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]
April 4, 2017
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)
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

"Kong: Skull Island" is a neutered adventure movie without any soul, or balls.
Full Review | Original Score: C-

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.

March 27, 2017
Kong: Skull Island is just good enough-the sharp allusions, the moments of wit and warmth supplied by Reilly's long-abandoned airman-to make one wish it were better.
March 25, 2017
Humans monkey with nature; giant ape goes bananas, wishing they would lemur him alone.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 22, 2017
A film with a fresh perspective and great action sequences that will be able to entertain anyone. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 21, 2017
primarily feels repetitious, rather than thrilling or awe-inspiring, with the same basic threats reworked over and over again to dwindling effect
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 21, 2017
Jettisons the timeless beauty-and-the-beast tragedy of the 1933 masterpiece for a borrowed Vietnam allegory...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 20, 2017
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.
March 19, 2017
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'
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
March 18, 2017
Just because you get to see a ton of the giant monster that supposedly stars in the movie doesn't necessarily make it great.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
March 18, 2017
The story, unencumbered by character building, is just one scene after another.
March 17, 2017
"Skull Island" an epic monster mash.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4.0
March 17, 2017
The film is at its best when it sweeps us into the terror of confronting giants.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.
