Kong: Skull Island 15

BUY TICKETS 8pm Saturday 22 April

DIRECTOR Jordan Vogt-Roberts
CAST Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman

This thrilling action movie continues the legend of the great King Kong as a group of adventurers and soldiers venture to his island.

A group of soldiers and adventurers, including former SAS captain Conrad (Tom Hiddleston), photojournalist Weaver (Brie Larson) and US army officer Packard (Samuel L Jackson), venture to an uncharted Pacific island, unaware that it is the domain of the mythic Kong … This compelling action movie, only distantly related to Peter Jackson’s 2005 remake, re-imagines the origin story of the great ape for a new audience, with an excellent cast and spectacular visuals.
(2017 USA / China 118 mins)

 In contrast to its ultra-serious first trailer, Skull Island is fun – pure matinee pulp masquerading as modern blockbuster. At a time when producers have more franchise clout than ever, Kong is a rare director-driven effects movie. Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer) keeps proceedings energetic and fantastically absurd – the first time the island is glimpsed, it explodes on screen, obscured behind a Richard Nixon bobblehead. The action is slickly staged and thrillingly kinetic, with a pleasing tactility to the effects work, while the exotic location shoot pays dividends.  Jordan Farley, Total Film
