Some people go to the movies to be wowed by the superb acting, heart wrenching and well written story, and overall solid production THIS has good effects? The acting in this film isn't bad, but it definitely won't win any awards for it. The story has characters Bill Randa John Goodman and Houston Brooks Corey Hawkins piggybacking on an expedition to an uncharted island to test their "hollow earth" theory.
Reilly plays a surprisingly funny WW2 vet marooned on Skull Island.
The film takes place in and loves to remind you with CCR and old technology as if it was a hundred years ago. Skull Island pays homage to Apocalypse Now quite frequently even though it seems a bit excessive at times. Kong looked good, almost all the creatures looked cool and all the fights between them looked really good, especially in IMAX 3D. Some of the green screen effects, like backgrounds behind characters, were distractingly bad.
Ultimately, you get some great stuff out of all the effects if you're not looking too closely. The characters are more hollow than the earth according to the film's characters themselves , the story is mediocre, but the effects reign king in this film adaptation. My suggestion: See it! Take it for what it is.

Victor Nieves Tian Jing External Reviews. Choy John Sumner The major plot points remain the same, but the visual effects watch Kong battle three T-Rexes at the same time!

You can watch it on YouTube but to get the full experience you have to be on the tram tour. This is a new segment of the tram tour in Universal LA and until we were asked to put our 3D glasses on I forgot about this part being in 3D. The film is only a few minutes long and rather fast and frenetic.
It starts off with some dinosaurs and you feel you are being attacked before King Kong shows up. Then another tram part of the filmed segment is under attack before a giant spider shows up which always freaks out the little kids and it is up to Kong to save the tram.
I know my kids enjoyed this, it is good to see the whole effect as Kong jumps from one part of the screen to the other side but it is all a blur as it is just too frenzied. PST on Sunday, Feb.
