Plot

In the 1970s, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted but beautiful isolated island that goes by the name of Skull Island, in the Indian Ocean. They soon discover that the island is home to a wonder of colossal proportions — the gigantic and prehistoric ape known as King Kong, who possesses great strength and semi-human intelligence. As the team ventures deeper into the primate’s territory, it becomes clear that they have more to fear than Kong, as there may be more terrifying, blood-thirsty predators lurking inhabiting the island.

Movie Reviews

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

All the requisite elements are served up here in ideal proportion, and the time just flies by, which can rarely be said for films of this nature.

Todd McCarthy: The Hollywood Reporter

Modern technology brings a classic movie monster to life with satisfying results, but you can’t say the same thing about the uneven tone.

Eric Kohn: IndieWire

The dialogue is clunky, the A-list actors are slumming and, yeah, you’ve seen it all before, but the thunderously exciting creature effects make this ‘Kong’ reboot a rip-roaring rumble in the jungle.

Peter Travers: Rolling Stone
