Kong: Skull Island is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and stars multiple great actors, including Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson. I was very excited for Kong: Skull Island ever since I saw the first trailer, which was awesome, and it hurts me to say that I was very disappointed with the way this movie turned out.

I thought the whole movie was very cliché and cheesy; so bad in fact there were numerous parts where I literally turned to my friend and said, “Are you kidding me?” I found the movie very predictable and I wasn’t surprised with a lot of the so called “plot twists.” I also thought that the characters were very underdeveloped and I didn’t care all the much for anyone in the movie. Only one character got an actual backstory and the rest were just kind of…there, and didn’t bring a whole lot of anything.

With all these negative, there are still a few positives. I thought that every scene King Kong was in was very fun and exciting, especially when he is fighting other various monsters on the island. I thought the acting and directing was pretty good, but with the poor writing, these thing got overlooked.

Overall, Kong: Skull Island was a fun and exciting movie to go see; it just lacked a few major elements in what makes a movie great. With the lack of good character development and a lot of very cheesy and borderline stupid moments, I give Kong: Skull Island a C-.
