  • 5 stars Good movie! Make sure to stay for extra scene after credits!
  • 5 stars It was a great movie...Enjoyed it from start to finish!!
  • 4 stars Better than I thought it would be. I had fun watching it.
  • 5 stars Loved it
  • Ok actioner but completely bereft of the tragic pathos so necessary to Kong's story. Certainly not a patch on the '33, '76, and 2005 classics. 2.5 stars out of 4
  • 4 stars Good action movie with great special effects - don't overthink this one - just sit back, eat your popcorn, and enjoy
  • 3 stars Ok action movie in places. Maybe the helicopters should have stayed further away from Kong. Loved the makeup on the islanders. Pay attention to the back-ground of the credit list (which is long) there are some tidbits at the very end. Afternoon at the movies, gotta love them.
  • 1 stars boring....slow....painfully long fight scenes. Pass this one up.
  • 5 stars This was a nice up to date revamping of the Kong story, whereas Peter Jackson's was a redone on the original Kong story line! So why would you want another original story line version that wouldn't make any sense as Peter Jackson's was well done! This story line was very interesting & Kong was a lot larger - Acting & CGI monsters were also very believable! Over all a very well done film!
  • 2 stars Kong meets Platoon. Fade in '60s choppers and hippie rock 'n roll. Eventually big ape meets beauty, completing the symbolic beauty and the beast analogy. Monsters get hungry for humans too. Humans fight monsters - Kong fights monsters too. Fade in more '60s rock 'n roll. Greedy entrepreneurs get eaten by digital part-lizard monsters. Kong kills pixelated monsters by the score and eats one which has long giant octopus tentacles. Kong has no large testicles (none whatsoever) but he likes tiny little white-women photographers shooting Kodachrome film anyway - no reason given. More '60s nostalgia music. Early in the movie, soldiers stupidly fly into Kong's swinging ten-ton fists and are decimated. Bad training? No, the producers are rewriting the history of the war in Vietnam. Says the general, "We didn't lose the war, we abandoned it!" Perfectly explains how they could inexplicably misjudge Kong, at ten stories tall, 20 tons of steel and granite, they oddly blindly fly directly into his gigantic thrashing arms. Go figure! Kong in the end is victorious and beats his mighty barrel chest to show the tiny puny little white Englishman he's still King and also show the tiny little white American woman that she is still "his" - testicular braggadocio by any other description. Yea, this could all just be a metaphor for Drumpf and Kellyanne "bimbo" Conway. The alpha male reigning supreme, white ape supremacy maybe, or so it would seem. End. Roll credits.??
