    This is a terrible movie! I’m just glad I didn’t have to pay for it & saw it on a plane! Terrible script, characters as generic as possible for this genre! Really bad, don’t watch it! I gave it 2 stars for the budget expenditure, they obviously wasted a lot of moola!

    Verging on drivel. Lazy lacklustre pool of ideas. Nothing new nothing really to it. Better off meeting the graphic artists for a drink than watching it

    Kong Skull Island. I've always enjoyed Kong and Godzilla films but this one definitely lacked something for me. A few impressive CGi action moments but I definitely felt it had been churned out without much effort. I felt nothing for any of the characters at all - they were mostly rather bland stupid people. Some of them were terribly cliched characters too (which bugged me). Much as I like Tom Hiddleston, in this move he seemed to have no screen presence whatsoever. Essentially Kong Skull Island is a small handful of action scenes that largely require the viewer to swallow the idea that most humans are really stupid (even when danger and certain death are right in front of them, i.e. the rather long-winded helicopters versus Kong scene near the start. That scene actually annoyed me. It took up lots of screen time but was totally stupid because the helicopter soldiers behaved like blind, brainless imbeciles. One after the other all the copters flew directly at Kongs body despite the fact the monster was swatting them all down one after the other like dumb flies!! I like my monster movies to be a little more intelligent than this one was. I didn't watch it twice (which I always do if I enjoy an i-tunes movie).
  • Unbelievably average!

    Bad dialogue, poor acting and direction and wasted talent in Jackson, Reilly and Hiddleston. Set pieces with Kong are good but eveeything else is cliched and badly executed!
  • Big Disappointment

    There are few films in which i want to stop watching before the end, this is one of them. The storyline was horrendous, the acting not much better, the only reason for the 2 stars was the quality of the CGI. Avoid is my recommendation, really not worth watching unless it's free on BBC or ITV

    Godzilla roar is at the end of the movie proving that kong will go up against Godzilla. The film was amazing worth the money

    It was ok - it felt like it was trying to be the old Doug McClure films of the 70's - like the land before time - certainly the acting had that about it but without the charm. Visually stunning, and enjoyed it to a point but don't expect too much
