Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: You'd say [Reilly] was the comic relief, except Kong: Skull Island can't seem to manage seriousness in the first place. Quit monkeying around.
Fresh: It's wildly entertaining and it has a sense of humor about itself - and it doesn't hurt when a great big monster movie features an A-list cast including John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston and John C. Reilly.
Fresh: A fun if muddled monster movie that gets its best jolts from the sheer size of its beasts.
Fresh: It is the platonic ideal of big, smart-dumb B-movie filmmaking - and, like Kong himself, it must be seen to be believed.
Terrible from start to finish. Just watch Peter Jackson's film. These were A list actors that apparently forgot how to act. The plot made no sense and there was no action to this whole movie. The only one who was good and there to provide comic relief was John C Reiley. But if you like mindless boring films that look beautiful and contain a ton of CGI then this is the film for you.
The film gets positive points on FX alone but the action sequences that make up only 1/5th of the film don't justify the price of the box office ticket. A sloppily written screenplay, mis-casting based on box office grosses alone and poor directing cobbled together into this mess. The producers should recognize these films could be epic but they are squandering that opportunity and evidently lack respect for the genre and those who love it.
A Fun Monster Movie
Kong: Skull Island is everything you expect it to be. It's a fun, action-packed, adventurous monster movie. Can't wait for Kong to take on Godzilla.
