  1. Stanislav Lukianov's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    but did exist in that film's reality original movie about King Kong? )))

  2. ‏ㅤ's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    I have often told friends to go see King Kong, the terrific, the wondrous. Nonsense! they cry, having seen him. Not so! Indeed not, I respond. Because you saw Kong only on a home television screen. My 50-foot ape was chopped down to your 12-inch-high dwarf. • Ray Bradbury, Yestermorrow

  3. Zach Closs's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    The screenplay is packed with contrivances and the dialogue is dripping with cheese, but Vogt-Roberts works some real magic from the director's chair. The Vietnam War setting pairs painterly imagery and a slick oldies soundtrack with some novel (if blunt) ruminations on militarism. Also, unlike Gareth Edwards' recent "Godzilla," you don't spend two-thirds of the film waiting for the beastly hoedowns. A real surprise!

  4. muh.'s rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    I wanted to see huge monsters fighting, I got huge monsters fighting. Consider me satisfied.

  5. spasmolytic's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    It's watchable mind numbing entertainment. That's what I wanted, and that's what I got. So I guess it serves it's purpose.

  6. Nick's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    It's actually pretty awe-inspiring how bad this alleged "movie" is. The non-existent characters and hackneyed plot would be forgiveable if the action were any good, but the rushed botchjob editing ruins it. A must-skip.

  7. Mr.Rager's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    While the plot continuously falls apart, the movie sustains a highly level of entertainment with his aesthetics. Character development is zero and for that you can blame the writers, who simply used their imagination only for action sequences. For me this is just 6.5/10. Overall i prefer a good story than a high visual level but sometimes that comes both... sadly not today.

    6.4/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-39A

  9. pluviosity's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    The director apparently had this uncontrollable urge to overdramatized every scene and drown it in every friggin Vietnam war movie soundtracks. I was bathed in cliches and my eyes tired of rolling up in my skull. Congratulation, Vogt-Roberts, you made Peter Jackson's version looked better.

  10. Stein Ove Lien's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

  11. hexhunk's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    A barely comprehensible mess with top-notch effects and an A-list cast who look like they all want to step out of frame to call their agents and demand being removed from the production. Who gave this man-child and his 4 (clearly) different editors the lines to such a tentpole? Would give less than a star if possible.

  12. Jørgen Lien's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

  13. Achromia's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    Better than expected, a well done sequel might be in order.

  14. Effendi Ben Smith-Malick's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    Everyone looked like they wanted to fire their agents and for some reason I watched the whole thing. It was kinda like porn in that way except I watched the whole thing. And there were far less monkeys.

  15. Barbara Giambartolomei's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    Good! the mythical gigantic gorilla always works. There is something archetypal to see the struggle between Kong and the dragon. I thought it was the latest reboot without a soul, but it actually captivates and convinces and I like the eco-friendly turn of the plot.

  16. Justwibi's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    even the director just had movie before. I think this kong completely entertaining in a beutiful way... but that's it......

  17. MisterColo93's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

  18. NUGA's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    It's as if Roberts knew what Kong was about and played with it, but he learnt from people who knew nothing about Kong. What really scared the movie was piss poor writing followed by a myriad of piss poor choices. However, through the right vision and a touch of meme filled ironic sense it can be surprisingly humorous. The special effects were stunning and so were some shots as if they were taken right out of a comic

  19. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    'Apocalypse Now' told to kids.

  20. Fré Verguchten's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

  21. runfromfire's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    I don't know. Maybe the script was good? I mean, they somehow convinced Ms. Marvel, Loki, Jules Winnfield, Walter Sobchak, Eli Thompson, Wreck-It Ralph AND Koba to sign on so there had to be something to it. What we got though was 20-25 minutes of pretty solid premise-building followed 90 minutes of complete horseshit. But hey, Samuel L. Jackson said "Hold onto your butts." so there's that.

  22. Janit's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

  23. Josh Lowe's rating of the film Kong: Skull Island

    Two hefty stars omitted for sucky dialogue and very vapid characters. Three stars for pretty visuals, Vietnam, and Brie Larson.
