I’ll admit, the only reason I went to see this film was because Tom Hiddleston is in it however I was pleasantly surprised.

Kong is introduced in the first 5 minutes of the film and at 100 feet tall is the largest of any of the previous King Kongses and looks very realistic. That is if gorillas came in that size!

With an all-star cast including Brie Larson, John C Reilly,  Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman and Tom Hiddleston, mentioned above, going on an expedition to an uncharted island to find new minerals.

After setting off seismic charges in the ground, they meet Kong who lives on the island and is treated as a God by the natives. The explorers think that Kong is the worst creature that they will meet there, but¬†they are wrong…

There are the usual explosions, fights and the inevitable Kong meets girl. All in all, not a bad film to go and watch if you have a few hours to spare.
