Dimitri’s review published on Letterboxd:
My rating to this movie is the perfect average between the "monster" part (a full 8) and the "human" part (a generous 4).
The Monster part is everything related to Kong and his fellow inhabitants of the Island that are incredibly thought and realized. Their interactions (and fights!) are simply amazing.
On the other hand, there's the part that is full human, that includes the characters, their stories but also the actors, the director and the writers. The plot is, at best, thin and near all the characters (except Goodman's and, maybe Reilly's) are mostly useless and in some cases (Hiddleston) both useless and ridicolous. Hiddleston playing an ex RAF Captain now an hunter/tracker is as credible as a Nobel for Peace assigned to Trump. Another movie where he shows that he is not even mediocre as an actor.
Also the "Apocalypse now" feeling (a tribute? a copycat? an ironic view?) is really embarassing.
On a side note, a chapeau to the director of photography for some incredible moments
