Description

The producers of Godzilla reimagine the origins of one the most powerful monster myths of all in Kong: Skull Island, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures.

A compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts ( The Kings of Summer ), the film tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.

Synopsis
A secret government organization mounts an expedition to Skull Island, an uncharted territory in the Pacific. Led by an explorer (John Goodman) and a lieutenant colonel (Samuel L. Jackson), the group recruit a disillusioned soldier (Tom Hiddleston) and a photojournalist (Brie Larson) to investigate the island's peculiar seismic activity. But once there, they discover that Skull Island is home to a gigantic ape called King Kong, and find themselves caught up in an ongoing war between the beast and the area's indigenous predators. Jordan Vogt-Roberts directed this reboot of the classic monster franchise.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"It’s a KING KONG movie -- a state-of-the-art monster mash, complete with giant bugs and prehistoric menaces and dwindling human numbers." -- Grade: B
A.A. Dowd (7 Mar 2017, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his the biggest Kong has ever been on screen....Fur and sinew moving naturally, he feels tangible -- as though he really is swatting helicopters out of the sky or taking a moment to admire the Southern Lights."
Empire Staff (2 Mar 2017, )
New York Times
"The filmmakers fold a lot of moody detail into the introductions, including real locations and the fog of war..."
Manohla Dargis (9 Mar 2017, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "The monsters are brilliantly designed and skillfully animated, and the army of visual and sound effects artists convince you that that these CGI titans live and breathe and weigh hundreds of tons."
Matt Zoller Seitz (10 Mar 2017, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] creature feature that's damn near irresistible....It's a rip-roaring rumble in the jungle."
Peter Travers (7 Mar 2017, )
Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "Jordan Vogt-Roberts keeps proceedings energetic and fantastically absurd....The action is slickly staged and thrillingly kinetic, with a pleasing tactility to the effects work, while the exotic location shoot pays dividends."
Total Film Staff (3 Mar 2017, )
Variety
"The surprise is that SKULL ISLAND isn’t just 10 times as good as JURASSIC WORLD; it’s a rousing and smartly crafted primordial-beastie spectacular."
Owen Gleiberman (2 Mar 2017, )
Washington Post
"[A] big, noisy B-movie infused with moments of wit and sprightly visual sophistication, anchored by what surely must be the most enormous version of King Kong since the giant ape made his screen debut in 1933."
(9 Mar 2017, )

Kong is King

Reviewed by on

Awesome movie action scenes are amazing , Kong is so realistic you sometimes forget its a CGI creature.It has nice blend of action ,drama and humor. Watch till after the credits roll as there is a scene relating to the King kong vs Godzilla movie coming out in 2019.

Kong: Yawn Island

Reviewed by on

Forgettable and mostly one dimensional characters, predictable story, overall quite a letdown. The only saving grace for this movie is the action.

Peter Jackson's King Kong still remains the superior Kong movie.
