Luke Hickman from TheReelPlace.com gives his review of the Tim Hiddleston, Brie Larson film “King: Skull Island”.
Never skimping on action, ‘Skull Island’ re-crowns the 8th Wonder of the World as King again. Made for anyone who thought Peter Jackson’s opus was too self-indulgent and creature feature fans.
Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for brief strong language.
My love for monster movies/creature features runs deep. It’s wondrous when they get them right: full of spectacular special effects and the watching something truly larger than life. And it brings me nothing but joy that Kong: Skull Island is everything fans could hope for and more. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts — of the criminally underseen indie The Kings of Summer — and screenwriters Dan Gilroy, Derek Connolly (Jurassic World), and Max Borenstein (Godzilla) have kickstarted the Warner Bros. monsterverse with one of the best since the original Jurassic Park.
