A reimagining of the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure. A diverse team of explorers are brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific, as beautiful as it is treacherous, unaware that they're crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.

The current copy that I borrowed is damaged: can't no play and got stuck in my
DVD player. Would like to request another copy. Thank you

A rather gory and simple movie, the only redeeming qualities being the "good", or moral, characters and SFX. Still fun to watch, though. Tom Hiddleston, as always, is a great actor.

I really enjoyed this movie I thought the CGI was pretty good . They did a good job with the Monsters I thought.

This was a terrible movie. All of the characters must be insane to make the choices that they do. I realize Samuel L Jackson is supposed to insane but the other characters aren't supposed to be.

Kong smash! Lots of good actors here looking lost amidst all the CGI beasties and explosions. At least they try to treat the natives with a little more nuance than Peter Jackson did in his atrocious "King Kong" remake.

The grandeur of the King Kong story has become grandiose and flat in this noisy, big monster clobberin' time fightfest. Sammuel L Jackson's squawky-voiced, bulging-eyed delivery failed to convince me of his blood mania.
A small nod to Beauty was all the available sentimentality, although John C. Reilly's "Santa Claus" did twang half a heartstring.

Given the cast, I expected more from this flick. Lots of noise, roaring, fire and fury, but the story line was weak, while the special effects were terrific. Great Saturday afternoon fare for adolescents.

Gives you a clue about the second godzilla movie!
This isn't a complete spoiler by the way...

As visually great as you would expect one of these movies to be though the story is also what you would expect with an interesting 'connection' to the Vietnam War....

Kong Skull Island is a movie about a group scientists who are being protected by military personnel lead under the command of Preston Packard, and their tracker, James Conrad. The group is on a journey to an uncharted island in the Pacific but, unluckily for them this will not be an easy journey. After arriving onto the island, the group realizes they are not alone as they are “greeted” by Kong who manages to destroy a few of the group’s helicopters. The group is split up and now they must rendezvous with each other, all while staying alive, which will not be a simple task as Kong is not the only danger on the island. Kong Skull Island was a good movie and I enjoyed watching it. The movie had comedic moments, good fight scenes, some swearing here and there, and a lot of blood. I would rate this film 4/5.

Hank Marlow: Kong's a pretty good king. Keeps to himself, mostly. This is his home, we're just guests. But you don't go into someone's house and start dropping bombs, unless you're picking a fight.
