Rating: ★★★★
The first time I watched 'Kong: Skull Island', the prequel to 2014's Godzilla (★★★★), was when it came onto Netflix. I was sitting on my bed with my laptop on my lap. It wasn't the best way to watch this movie but I still had a great time.
Fast-forward a year or so, I rewatched this on a bigger screen, getting ready for 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters', and enjoyed this movie a lot.
It's not without its flaws but on the technical side of things, it's stunning. The breathtaking cinematography and rich colour-pallet make this movie appealing for the eyes. The score, sound design and 70s soundtrack is famtastic. And don't even get me started on how great the CGI is.
The acting was good. John C. Reiley was amazing in this and brings the most amount of emotion. The writing had its moments of glory. And the story was interesting
The fight scenes did not disappoint. There wasn't a point in any of the fights where I was starting to get bored.

Bonus Content:
I really enjoyed 'Skull Island'. By the way, what is with John C? Reliey and extremely emotional final scenes that at set to music with no words being spoken?
