with Godzilla was that there just wasn't enough Godzilla but fortunately Skull Island rectifies that exact problem and makes Kong as big a character in the film as any of the humans. He is frequently appearing on screen at regular intervals and plays a genuine role in the story.
On another note, while Kong: Skull Island is top-quality, it still isn't entirely perfect. For one, while the film is brimming with ideas and interesting characters throughout, it does cause the film to be viewed as a little crowded at times. The lack of a main character amidst the huge ensemble cast means it's definitely not as streamlined as I would have liked. Another is the parallels with Vietnam, and although this is unique and great to see in a movie it can be a little overbearing at times. Now, this does die down, later on, it was a predictable a first.
Worth Buying: 3 of 5 stars
