Derivative and a little dumb but consistently fun: there's personality and panache to spare in this monster blockbuster. With reservations, Skull Island is a swinging success.

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts with a gleeful, look-at-me-ma garishness that speaks to his background in TV comedy, the movie feels wonderfully close to self-parody.

Watch the final trailer and you’ll experience a rarity – an honest taste of what’s on offer. ‘Kong: Skull Island’ is derivative, silly, and surprisingly fun. Think Oliver Stone’s ‘Platoon’, meets Andy Serkis-style motion-capture CGI, in Steven Spielberg’s ‘Jurassic Park’ , and you’re pretty much there.
