REVIEW from MTV News:
Kong: Skull Island starts in 1944, the last years of Japan’s Empire of the Rising Sun. Behold! There’s the sun now, boiling in the center of the screen before the opening credits begin. Then director Jordan Vogt-Roberts blocks out the light with a surprise: a screaming body falling from the sky. It’s an American soldier crash-landing on an uncharted island in the Pacific. Kaboom! Now he’s joined by a pilot from Japan. The enemies grab their guns and the fight continues until the sun disappears again — this time behind a 100-foot ape. Guys, it’s time to make friends.
