Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★½

Half-baked. A waste of a fantastic cast (who largely stand around doing next to nothing; some get less than that). Abhorrent monster design. Irritating needle drops and constant unearned Apocalypse Now references. Perfectly competently made, down to the endless, pre-vized to death action sequences. But that doesn't stop it from being 2 hours of insultingly boring storytelling.
