Kong: Skull Island ★★★

There is no review for this diary entry. Add a review?

Never had the potential that 2014 Godzilla hinted at before squandering it, but also never seemed to aim for it either. There are cons here (even for a big dumb monster movie, the story could use a little reworking), but I think this at least aims for the right approach, in being a $200 million B-movie, instead of going the dark/serious route Godzilla went.

Incredibly dumb, but equally cool to look at, so it's at least a fun ride. I hope the subsequent Godzilla/Kong films take this approach.
