Kong: Skull Island ★★★½

Kong is an improvement on Godzilla. It’s action is more fast paced, it’s visuals are stunning, and the entire ensemble cast is impeccable. It actually uses Kong as a pivotal plot point, rather than a side note like Godzilla. It also uses a smart backdrop of the Vietnam war era to further a different backdrop. It could’ve used a more dynamic score and perhaps some bigger character archs, but it’s very successful as a popcorn movie.
