So! New format on the reviews! I figured it would be better overall if I just start making solid and clear recommendations about a movie in my reviews, so here we are!
As for the movie itself, man. "Kong: Skull Island", got me cautiously-optimistic at first. It looked promising considering the fantastic cast it had going for it. Then again! A film's cast is never really the biggest tell of whether the movie will be good or not as a lot of other one's in the past which have had an equally impressive line-up turned out to be shit. But, I am here to inform you, that "Kong: Skull Island" is far from being that. In fact. It happens to be quite a fantastic movie! And I do dare saying that it is the perfect monster movie! It's got a decent story going for it. Nothing really too impressive, but is serviceable enough, some pretty fleshed-out characters, I would say, almost each one, happens to deliver stellar performances. It's directed well in that you're quite aware of what happens during the big monster fights which are this movie's bread and butter. Good direction is really crucial for action movies because you have to know what the hell is going on, where each character is in the given environment and when you add all that up, what might go down.
Speaking of the action, this movie's big fights happen to be nothing short of spectacular. They are the definition of quality, popcorn-action I'm telling you. I can't remember the last time I was that giddy and hyped up in the cinema while watching something ever since "Pacific Rim", maybe, but this film is probably even better because it happens to be more well-rounded and is just a better movie in a lot of aspects. The film really does have more than enough going for it. Interesting characters, with good performances from the star-studded cast, story that happens to be decent enough to set-up the big monster-universe they're planning out, and of course, some edge-of-your-seat-bouncing-up-and-down-with-an-ear-to-ear-grin action. Man did this movie get my hype as fuck. Hahaha!
