We know the story of Kong so let’s get straight to the nitty gritty…

Bursting with colour, luscious scenery and slick visuals, Skull Island’s a cinematic treat.

And so is Kong. This impressive CGI creation doesn’t tease us in the dark like other creature features (*cough* Godzilla).

The script is noticeably shallow though.

Too many characters are expendable snacks for Kong and his other monster friends. Tom Hiddleston’s also awkwardly cast as the heroic, muscly lead.

But Skull Island is still a blast. And viewers wanting to see Kong wrestle with a bunch of over-sized monsters won’t be disappointed.
