Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★★★

Kong: Skull Island is a major step up from Godzilla, and while it isn't at all perfect, it's fun as hell. This was genuinely entertaining, from its stunning leading lineup to the giant CGI monsters — there are a few dull scenes in the first half, but the action picks up quickly. The fight sequences were beautifully executed, and thrilling most of the time; I'm entirely rooting for King Kong in the upcoming crossover.
