Kong: Skull Island ★★★

First the good...

Cool creatures, great action, solid VFX. Kong is an amazing sight to see. 

Several awe-inspiring slow-motion action shots. 

Then the bad...

The military squad aren’t very convincing — seems more like a disjointed group from ‘Tropic Thunder’.

John C. Reilly and his improv got annoying to me. 

Cheesy 70’s music.
