KONG: SKULL ISLAND.
Just as the name suggests, this movie is setup on an ISLAND, that’s where the action takes place with all the neat creatures.
Not only a hugely entertaining monster movie, but a well-directed, well-written and well-acted. The CGI was amazing.
Kong: Skull Island, is a fast- paced and absolutely jam-packed action movie that actually gets better and better as it moves along. Skull Island does do a fantastic job at bringing the character from the 1933 and 2005 films to a different time period and making a new, riveting story.
“ALL HAIL THE KING” !
Above all, the film’s ingenious parallels with the Vietnam War make for fascinating viewing. particular, Samuel L. Jackson’s character, a stubborn, war-mongering colonel taken from the Vietnam War he loved fighting in, is hugely interesting to watch.
Tom Hiddleston who plays John Conrad that is a merc for hire accompanies Bill Randa (John Goodman)to a place no human eyes has seen for over ten thousand years. An island hidden away in a thick stormy mist as a means of a deterrent for curious people. Among them are a military escort led by Colonel Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) and one photographer Mason
Tom Hiddlestone is just perfect.
The plot was good, the acting was outstanding. I really felt I was in the 70’s. The music in the movie was dead on perfect.
P.S.: Its soundtrack features many songs from the Vietnam era (Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid”!), and if you enjoy the music from that time, you’ll probably like the movie a whole lot more.
P.S. #2: Stay through the lengthy end credits. You won’t regret it. Serious.
