Kong: Skull Island is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and it stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, and Brie Larson in a monster film about some scientists and soldiers going over to Skull Island to explore and research about it, and while they got over there, King Kong comes out of nowhere and attacks the helicopters where half of the people there survived, but have got to find a way to send help to get out of the island. I wasn't really looking forward to it in a very skeptical way because I thought it was going to be like the other King Kong films, and the Peter Jackson version is the first and only version that I've seen that's about King Kong, and thought it was a great film at that time, which made me wonder about why was this made. From the Godzilla film in 2014 I understand why that needed to be made as there was never a Godzilla film in America, and the 1998 version was disrespectful to Godzilla that I pretty much think that the film doesn't exist, so I was pretty excited to see that more than this one was. Even with the high positive reviews that this movie was, I still wasn't sold on it because I watched reviews from Chris Stuckmann and Jeremy Jahns which they didn't really enjoy it that much, even though Brad Jones and James Rolfe had a blast with this film. The thing is however, my mom and I were suppose to go see Logan instead of this, but I looked at the wrong schedule by accident and we both had to find another film so it wasn't a waste of time driving to the theater. So as an unintentional film to watch, this was surprisingly a lot of fun to watch. The acting is solid enough that I wasn't bored of the film when it was showing the characters, probably because it has more characters that are three-dimensional like Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly, and some from John Goodman which are in the film for most of it instead of Godzilla when Bryan Cranston is one of the best parts of that film, and he's only in it for 15 minutes. That doesn't mean that the rest of the acting is bad as they are also great and hold up the film, but it's more or less their acting that keeps me interested, unlike the other actors that I was talking about that they're charismatic and are interesting characters to watch as Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Corey Hawkins, and other characters are two-dimensional and they don't really have much to offer, other then showing a bit of their comedic side, where are funny, and never make it seem like it's a comedy. The effects look good, and the designs of the monsters like King Kong and the other creatures in the island, were different and creative looking that never felt like Peter Jackson's version. When King Kong does show up, it's really amazing, and is very terrifying to mess with as around 15 helicopters go against the ape, and King Kong just annihilated them one by one. The action scenes are exciting to watch, and the soundtrack by Henry Jackman really gave us a feel that it takes place during the Vietnam War era as there were a lot of songs that definitely sounded like that type of thing that was played during the war. The story is actually different from Peter Jackson's version, and that it was pretty simple to handle as it's basically a destination type of film. It shows King Kong more than Godzilla, which I actually appreciate, and the post-credit scene is really cool that'll be worth it during the long credits. Kong: Skull Island is better than I thought was going to be, and I can't wait to see what they got next in their very own MonsterVerse.
