Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Sci-Fi - This is an effects-heavy action-adventure monster movie. Fans of previous films featuring the King Kong character will enjoy. All of the recognizable names in the ensemble, such as Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, and Brie Larson, are secondary to the monster mayhem, but their fans will have plenty to enjoy here. There is some language, an bloodshed is only moderate, but many intense fight sequences between people, King Kong, and many other giant creatures may be too brutal and scary for young kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average As a big-budget B-grade monster movie, Kong: Skull Island is a home run. It offers all the tropes and clichés one expects from this sort of endeavor, sparing no expense when it comes to special effects. As a King Kong movie, however, Skull Island is less successful.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The monsters are brilliantly designed and skillfully animated (except for a few shots where Kong looks a tad cartoony), and the army of visual and sound effects artists convince you that that these CGI titans live and breathe and weigh hundreds of tons.

NY Post Full Review
Average The monster battles have enough wow to keep the movie rolling along, but the connective tissue is so thin that it scarcely matters who lives and who gets stomped, eaten, blown up, ripped to shreds or impaled.
