Kieran Smith’s review published on Letterboxd:
A film that has to be seen on a silver screen. If you don’t want tongue in cheek, visually pleasing, joyous spectacle in your films, this ain’t for you. Kong Skull Island makes the argument that style alone a film can make, and makes a strong argument at that.
If you want to see a giant ape kick the shit out of a squad of helicopters to Black Sabbath, here you go. The cherry on top, the direction is far more stylish than a monster flick deserves. Example: smash cut from a man falling into an open mouth, to a sandwich being munched. You may only see this once, but that one viewing will be fun.
