Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★★

It may be as hollow as Skull Island itself, but it's proper b-movie comicbook pulp on a blockbuster scale, that I quite enjoyed.

They get straight into the action, there's no waiting around to see Kong and it barely lets up until the end. Some of the humour misfires, there isn't much character development and it's a tad too long. However, there are some great creature effects, gruesome deaths, and the post credits scene managed to sufficiently whet my appetite for Godzilla 2.
