Kong: Skull Island Review

In a cinematic landscape where iconic characters and beloved stories are boiled down to properties that can be milked for every ounce of franchise potential, it’s no surprise to see King Kong resurrected. The giant ape has been a big screen icon since his big screen bow in 1933 and now he’s back and definitely bigger than ever - if not exactly better – in Kong: Skull Island. Though the film manages to capture the scale and presence of an impressively rendered Kong, it fails to bring anything new to the table and leaves its heavyweight cast with very little to do.
