In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to the mysterious Skull Island, where they encounter Kong, a giant ape who is immediately smitten with leading lady Ann Darrow.
A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake. To stop the monster (and its babies), an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
Carl Denham needs to finish his movie and has the perfect location; Skull Island. But he still needs to find a leading lady. This 'soon-to-be-unfortunate' soul is Ann Darrow. No one knows what they will encounter on this island and why it is so mysterious, but once they reach it, they will soon find out. Living on this hidden island is a giant gorilla and this beast now has Ann is its grasps. Carl and Ann's new love, Jack Driscoll must travel through the jungle looking for Kong and Ann, whilst avoiding all sorts of creatures and beasts. But Carl has another plan in mind.Written by
When Carl falls at the beginning of the brontosaurs chase we see that he is only just in front of the brontosaurs so when he fell he should have been crushed straight away but he isn't. Jack then runs to help him and we see that the brontosaurs only need another step or 2 (which would take 1 or 2 seconds) before they reach Carl and Jack. Carl gets up and argues with Jack for 5 seconds or so by which time they should have been crushed. They then run and there is a far off shot showing the brontosaurs back where they were at the start again. See more »
That's a funny one. Isn't that funnier?

At the end of the closing credits: "This film is dedicated with love and respect to the original adventurers of Skull Island: Merian C. Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack, Willis H. O'Brien, Max Steiner, Robert Armstrong and ... the incomparable Fay Wray. They continue to inspire all those who follow in their footsteps." See more »
My wife and I and a group of friends went to see this movie with great anticipation. As it progressed, so did our disappointment. The movie was an endless series of long, drawn out scenes that took way too long, the animal chases, the creepy crawly scenes, the bats, the log scene, the Ape standing and swinging the limp girl around for what seems like an eternity, OK, we get it, you got a passed out girl and your swinging her around!, the list goes on and on. They take forever and we all lost interest before the end of each scene. The comment we heard the most was, "Enough already. Can we get on with it?" Also on the annoying meter were the abundant sub plots which keep appearing and never going anywhere. Characters appear and then disappear. When you think they are going to have some impact on the plot or overall film, they don't, they just don't show up any more. You don't care about them in the first place so you notice it later when you find yourself saying, "Hey what happened to....." There were holes everywhere, how did they get the ape back to NY, for instance? Totally disappointed.
