Kong incarnated in Skull Island thriller
IF A few scenes in the latest King Kong instalment look familiar, don’t be surprised.
Shot in idyllic locations across tropical Queensland and Hawaii, the visual appeal of Kong: Skull Island is outstanding.
Iconic landmarks are not the only drawcard for this action/adventure movie, there is also the winning combination of a stellar cast and vicious predators.
There is a solid mix of humour, action, characters and of course the gigantic ape which never fails to steal the spotlight.
This movie monster has made many appearances over the years, however this instalment easily pulls off a fresh and visually appealing narrative full of twists, turns and adventure.
Set on an uncharted Pacific island, mythical tales and science come together to surprise everyone.
When palm trees are upended, bodies fly everywhere and the ocean becomes an out-of-control jacuzzi, it is safe to say viewers would feel they got exactly what they paid for.
It is 1973 and a group of explorers and scientists is escorted by the military to a remote Pacific Island that has acquired a reputation as a place where strange things happen.
There, they discover they have entered a domain of monsters, including the mythic Kong.
Action and spectacular effects punctuate this roller-coaster of a feature creature, in which lush tropical locations; an appealing cast and humongous predators are the main ingredients.
