Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island ★★

Ugh, an allegory for America's foreign policy set to Creedence Clearwater Revival? No thanks.

Idealises life for actual Vietnam soldiers (hanging out, listening to records on a ship deck, all getting along famously), only to then get to Skull Island with a half-arsed criticism of Americans interfering in a peaceful, seemingly communist society, with bonus missing POW to boot.

Misguided, but, fuck, Hiddleston looks good with a tan, as does Brie Larson.
