Kong: Skull Island is giving kaiju fans what they want: a whole movie of giant prehistoric monsters vs military hardware.
The original King Kong wasn’t without its action; after an hour and a half of chasing washed-up actors and showbiz promoters across an island he spent the final act swatting a few planes from a building.
When the movie was first announced we couldn’t help but roll our eyes. Another King Kong remake? Fortunately, this time they set it in the 70s (and not for the first time), and instead of Jack Black and Adrien Brody we get Samuel L. Jackson and crazy John Goodman. Hell yeah.
