Kong: Skull Island (2017) – Movie Review
Movie Review –
Over the years there had been many attempts to bring the story of King Kong to the theaters and each time had been an epic failure, so after the trailers of Kong: Skull Island (2017); we had to go see it. The trailer for Kong had already shown a huge progress between this movie and every other King Kong related film and the cast for Kong: Skull Island (2017) was certainly an eye catcher.
Last night on the first viewing we were in our seats ready to enjoy the movie, it wasn’t a big crowd. In reality probably 20 people in the theater. The lights went out and the film began and right off the start we were saying “this looks to be really good”. The graphics, for the most part, are extremely good, there were only two or three spots that you could really see the film set and green screen hiccups. The script was well put together for the most part until about ⅔ of the way through as the film starts to lose steam. By mid-way through it many items were starting to stand out for example: If someone had just come out of the water completely soaked and two seconds later in the film, their hair and makeup had been redone and they’re dry. Items like that sort of started to show themselves more and more towards the ending as if the film was completely rushed to finish up.
Now, in short, this film is very entertaining and it is marketed towards the right audience and age group, I’m certain that area will miss a lot of the items I pointed out. We did have a wonderful time watching the film, and it is the best King Kong made film to date. The graphics are as good, if not better than Michael Bay’s “Ninja Turtles”. Would we see it again? Yes.
Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 3 stars
