Kong: Skull Island ★★★

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

Totally fine, but nothing amazing. Apparently there was a ton of on location shooting, but I couldn't tell because of the endless color correction and CGI skylines; a lot of this set design looks so phony. 

Goodman is fine as the madman scientist, but he was a more convincing one in 10 Cloverfield Lane.  

Jackson, who you'd think would be perfect for this material, seems either a little bored, or he's playing too serious for what everyone else is doing.

Great monster effects though. 

Kong continues to be one of the most sympathetic characters in cinema. 

No thanks on that sequel setup, though.
