Kong: Skull Island (2017, USA)

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

Coming into this movie I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I absolutely love monster movies, I always have. Kong: Skull Island is a total throwback to the fun, action adventure movies we got throughout the 80’s and early 90’s. There’s so much to like here and it’s hard not to enjoy, so even though it’s had respectable reviews, it certainly hasn’t taken the world by storm. Don’t get me wrong it’s not going to win any awards, but it’s clear that wasn’t it’s aim. It’s main purpose is to give the audience a nostalgic, happy time and to entertain.

“All hail the King.”
