Kong: Skull Island | Ratings & Reviews

"A surfeit of cool ideas propels this grand adventure forward, even if they don't ever all quite gel into something with a larger point. But movies about giant monsters don't live or die on "larger points" and Kong: Skull Island remains a consistently entertaining hoot throughout."

Flicks, Dominic CorryFlicks

"The surprise is that Skull Island isn't just ten times as good as Jurassic World; it's a rousing and smartly crafted primordial-beastie spectacular."


"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."

Total FilmTotal Film

"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."

Time OutTime Out

"This fantastically muddled and exasperatingly dull quasi-update of the King Kong story looks like a zestless mashup of Jurassic Park, Apocalypse Now and a few exotic visual borrowings from Miss Saigon."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"This is, in short, a neutered Kong – yet taken as a straightforward adventure movie, it's enjoyable enough."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"It's terrible to recommend a film entirely on its computer-generated grounds, but this is what Kong: Skull Island does best."


"All the requisite elements are served up here in ideal proportion, and the time just flies by, which can rarely be said for films of this nature."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"...that's the thing about Kong - it's never not fun..."


"This is an uneven adventure that's saved by the spectacle of its towering title character and the various beasts with whom he shares his island home."
