A thrilling adventure with an all-star cast! I enjoyed this modern take on the classic King Kong story, with fantastic visual effects and new twists. Makes you think about the way we respond to that which we fear, but ultimately is unknown.

Movie was good. I liked it. Final scene intriguing. King Kong must've had a clean-up crew,; ironically we were wondering, massive ape but no 'waste' lying anywhere on the island...;)

Looking forward to next chapter.

Delivers the goods (Kong's roar) in first 10 mins. Rest of movie pretty ok. Good popcorn movie.

It was a good fantasy movie, filled with beautiful scenery and a good storyline. The actors were great, and it had its comedic moments as well.

Why does Kong walk upright like a man? Why didn't SLJ just come out and say he was tired of these mf'ing apes on his mf'ing island? Did I miss anything cool during the parts I slept through? So many unanswered questions.

That's 2 hours of my life ill never get back. The only way to watch this is free from the library and I'm still not sure id recommend that. I kept feeling sorry for poor Tom Hiddleston who up to this point has done some pretty good movies. Robert Taylor's talent was completely wasted as well. There's a couple of good comic moments by John C. Reilly, but its not enough to improve the quality of this flick. Samuel L. Jacksons character was unimaginative. Bad, evil man. Must kill big monkey. Its just bad, with a bad script and moments that are just ridiculous. One review stated that leaving your brain at the door was a good idea when watching this movie. I agree. You'd think at some point the actors would take a moment while filming this movie and say " This movie is going to suck". Example. A man is getting pulled in all directions by prehistoric birds. They manage to rip off his arm at the shoulder joint, while pulling on his briefcase. Personally I think he would of let go of the briefcase before having his arm ripped off. Silly, illogical moments like that pepper the entire movie. They would of been better to commit to making this a full out comedy.

Kong fan I am but saving Jessica Lang this was not. This version switched romance with special effects. They left the obvious opening for a sequel to the end, I hate that

Probably the worst mainstream movie I've seen in some time. Appalling writing. Obsessive slow motion helicopter shots. Not even fun bad. Just bad.

A good action packed romp through the island. Good guys, bad guys, and lots of action.

As a Kong film this one is not half as good as the one by Peter Jackson. Plot is a stretch. Watch it only if you are a Kong fan.
