Thought that Peter Jackson's KingKong movie could have done without the entire first act? Though that the Godzilla movie set in the same universe should have shown their big beastie a whole lot more? Well Skull Island fixes those problems, and replaces them with a whole bunch of new ones!
I had a lot of fun though. So it passes into the realm of a positive review by the skin of its octopus-riddled teeth.
Final rating:★★★ - I personally recommend you give it a go.
