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]
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.
The result lands somewhere between camp and slick action... For the most part, it feels like a joyride as the director pulls donuts in the parking lot before making it onto the highway of storytelling.
Skull Island is packed with stunning, innovative effects work. But that effects work is also a form of consistently excellent acting, one that contrasts with the generally lackluster human characters Kong is surrounded by.
