Atom User Reviews for Kong: Skull Island
This movie was no good. There was no plot. This movie was a total let down.
definition of a blockbuster
I liked twist of saving Kong.
This film is terrible
Good film pretty epic with a star studded cast. Can't wait for the next Godzilla movie because of that ending though!
Really fun film with Apocalypse Now feel via the soundtrack and era. Being set in the 1970's expanded the story perfectly because the characters were dealing with technology of the time. Plain fun story, good acting, and well executed visually.
I’ve gone on about the creatures because there’s so little to say about the humans, who, in their turn, have little to say about the creatures, because the writers haven’t written enough lively dialogue.
This highly entertaining return of one of the cinema's most enduring giant beasts moves like crazy — the film feels more like 90 minutes than two hours — and achieves an ideal balance between wild action, throwaway humor, genre refreshment and, perhaps most impressively, a nonchalant awareness of its own modest importance in the bigger scheme of things.
If the film belongs to anyone, it’s creature designer Carlos Huante. Kong is expressive and impressive, both in hair and full-body movement, and his interaction – with water, humans, other animals – is consistently fluid.
