Worth seeing at the theater!!!
12 March 2017 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

I had a lot of reservations going to see this. I assumed it was riding on the tail of other Kong movies and was going to be a waste of time. I was dead wrong. Kong: Skull Island is what a Kong movie should be. It was entertaining in many different ways but the best part about this movie is the non-stop creative use of death and violence. I know that seems strange to hear but go see it and you'll see. You'll love how creative some of the scenes are!!!! Thank you KONG!!!

10/10 stars, easy decision!!
