KONG: SKULL ISLAND MOVIE REVIEW
Kong: Skull Island is directed by Jordan Vogt Roberts and stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, and John C. Reily. The plot of the movie is a team of scientists explore an uncharted island in the Pacific, venturing into the domain of the mighty Kong, and must fight to escape a primal Eden. There are some good sequences in this movie when King Kong is fighting other monsters that is entertaining. That is all that is enjoyable about this film. The characters in this movie are some of the most uninteresting characters I have seen in a while. So when these people are put in a dangerous situation I didn't care. We meet Tom Hiddleston's character in a bar he takes a few guys out with a pool stick and the whole scene is poorly edited. He does have a scene where he tells Brie Larson's character something that happened in his past. I suspect that scene was just in there because they realized that they need to develop at least one of these characters. Brie Larson's character is a photographer that's all there is to her she spends a lot of the movie taking pictures. John C. Reily has been on the island for a while and you do learn a lot about him. Despite the fact this movie, for the most part, was shot on real locations a lot of it looks like it was shot on green screen. Almost all attempts at humor fall flat. John C. Reily and Samuel L. Jackson get a few laughs, but it's basically because the actors are so likable and funny This movie was very disappointing I didn't like a lot of the characters, Kong has one awesome scene and that is all. 2 out of 5 stars for Kong: Skull Island. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see this movie or not.
