Boy did I enjoy this film.
forget plot and logic. This is an all out creature feature...It is called Skull Island because that's where the action takes place with all the neat creatures.
There is a LOT of screen time devoted to Kong and the monsters. And LOTS of cool death scenes. Pretty gory, in my opinion, and surprised this got a pg-13. Some scenes would be very frightening for little ones.
Most surprisingly, it is the the acting of John Goodman and J.C. Riley that stands out - even overshadowing tom Hiddleston. I am not a big fan of Goodman or Riley, so this really surprised me.
For the plot - people go to Skull Island. They encounter Kong and various giant monsters. Mayhem and death ensues. Some return home. The end.
Doesn't sound like much but the monster scenes really made the movie, and Kong was fantastic. They really had him move - he was almost like a giant Hulk smashing those airplanes!
Oh, and PLEASE stay after the credits. What was shown put a BIG smile on my face... No spoilers.. you have to see it for yourself.
My wife and I had a blast. The first 20 minutes were regrettably lame, but the rest of the movie was a hoot.
8 out of 10 for fun factor.

Boy did I enjoy this film.
Some people go to the movies to be wowed by the superb acting, heart wrenching and well written story, and overall solid production... THIS has good effects? The acting in this film isn't bad, but it definitely won't win any awards for it.
The story has characters Bill Randa (John Goodman) and Houston Brooks (Corey Hawkins) piggybacking on an expedition to an uncharted island to test their "hollow earth" theory. Tom Hiddleston plays a tracker, Brie Larson plays a photographer, and John C. Reilly plays a surprisingly funny WW2 vet marooned on Skull Island.
The film takes place in 1973 and loves to remind you with CCR and old technology as if it was a hundred years ago. Kong: Skull Island pays homage to Apocalypse Now quite frequently even though it seems a bit excessive at times.
Kong looked good, almost all the creatures looked cool and all the fights between them looked really good, especially in IMAX 3D. Some of the green screen effects, like backgrounds behind characters, were distractingly bad. Ultimately, you get some great stuff out of all the effects if you're not looking too closely.
The characters are more hollow than the earth (according to the film's characters themselves), the story is mediocre, but the effects reign king in this film adaptation.
My suggestion: See it! it's a blockbuster meant to fill seats, not win awards. Take it for what it is.
Seen at an advanced IMAX 3D screening in Minneapolis.
So it is like Ghostbusters 2016 all over again. On the day of releaseof another unrequested, unwanted, unappealing reboot a whole bunch ofaccounts appear and write super duper positive reviews. Well, they areall fake. Although these fake reviewers are getting more'sophisticated.' Look at tvsweeney-39052 for example, the account wascreated several months ago and give Village Road Show and Columbiareleases all 10/10, but has thrown in a couple of bad reviews of otherstudios' releases in the interim.
This movie sucks. The unoriginality stinks to high heaven The tokenChinese cow to satisfy Chinese investors and Chinese ticket sales isbeyond useless and cannot act and Kong is not even Kong (they don'teven want to call him King because he is so off). This is one of thosestandard cliché films where the grown up audience knows after 5minutes, that the target group is hacks. Even in the middle of thefilm's major actions scene, the whole logic pauses, as two supposedlycool characters have to talk, run and get into danger and make theaudience yawn, because it is just so bad.
Unlike many fantasy films, this film is not interesting at all. If someyoung script writer thought that it would be "cool" for a remote islandto be "interesting", then the accountants at the studio would writethis script for him.
