It's weird. It's like Full Metal Jacket with King Kong.

This movie is a mess in so many ways.
January 15, 2020
A lot of stuff happens on Skull Island, but none of it makes much sense, so there's no emotional movement.
August 6, 2019
Not only is the plot subpar, the characters feel like they're made to die and the ones that have some purpose are so dull that you wouldn't even care if they were gone.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 4, 2019
A silly dumbing down of the Kong mythos, complete with a moronic sense of a humor and a complete misuse of its talented cast
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Try to remember the name of any character a day after, and you probably won't. You're not supposed to. The film does not care for any of them. Neither do we.

Even Kong is underwritten in this film.

Your monster enemy's monster enemy is your monster friend in "Kong: Skull Island", as is the CGI which is genuinely thrilling. But overall it's bloated and overlong, with so many characters running around it feels like the last night of "Big Brother".

The film's evoking of its anti-war counterparts falls flat, and feels hollow, much like the island itself.
October 4, 2019
No one's taking any real risks with Kong: Skull Island except to promise the return of more monster mash-ups.

The pacing was choppy, and it was shoddy and all over the place...when Kong was on screen, it was really cool to watch, but in the end it didn't pay off.
April 9, 2018
This star-laden action drama is proof that more money and gizmos do not necessarily make for a bigger thrill ride... a picture that has plenty of crash and bang but little in the way of emotional wallop.

That's not to say there's nothing good here. There is - it just could've been so much better.

September 15, 2017
Perhaps we have become impatient as an audience and directors are no longer keen to hold back, but sadly I feel the film was poorer for its immediate unveiling of the myriad of monsters.

September 5, 2017
This is a generic, tonally awkward monster showcase which forgets about both charm and heart, in its humans and King Kong himself.

December 18, 2017
What starts out as a potentially fun and cliche-less way to do an action movie turns into another watered-down origin story of a franchise.
June 5, 2017
The humans, meanwhile, are largely left to stare in awe.
November 19, 2017
There's life in the old ape yet, but he sinks like the Titanic.
November 11, 2018
This new Kong can never be crowned King.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
August 21, 2018
"Kong: Skull Island" isn't the most horrible film you'll ever see, but it's lack of imagination and dullness is most definitely apparent.
