Ripped Tomatoes Reviews Kong, Skull Island
Some people are immediately not going to give this a chance. They are going to see King Kong and assume B movie with B actors. Well guess what asshole, you are fucking wrong. This movie has not one but multiple A+ actors, and a story line that does anything but suck. Just look at that fucking cast, just look, seriously. Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson (Babe) and John C. Riley?! Holy fucking shit. Talk about a line up.
= 4 Pot Plants
This movie only gets 4 pot plants. This sounds strange since I just talked it up, and this is a King Kong movie so how in god’s name do I need to pay attention? Honestly, you don’t want to get too ripped and miss out on the smallest things that makes this movie so good. There are little details in the animation and the scenery that will be overlooked otherwise.
= 4 Stars
Kong, Skull Island comes in at 4 stars. We wanted a real fucking ending, not a set up to a sequel as the entire ending. We liked the ending, but having the entire thing be a set up for the next movie is just fucking lazy. We are never fans of a sequel set up ending, that is why this is such an important part of the review. The over encompassing awesome of the movie keeps this at 4 stars. We talk about the music in movies a lot, and this movie is no different. The soundtrack is absolute bliss for the classic rock fan. 4 stars is a fucking solid rating for King Kong.
We usually drone on about what the fuck is good and bad in the conclusion, but fuck that. Just go watch this. Do yourself a favor and watch this. We are excited to see what happens with the later movies in the series… even if we thought the ending was lazy.
