    "Kong: Skull Island" delivers a lot of thrills, but not much more than
    that. Working from a screenplay by Dan Gilroy ("Nightcrawler"), Derek
    Connolly ("Jurassic World") and Max Borenstein, director Jordan
    Vogt-Roberts ("The Kings of Summer") keeps things moving as he updates
    the old-fashioned adventure flick. Better yet (and unlike Jackson's
    film), the new movie understands the line between thrilling an audience
    and scaring it silly — between action-adventure awe and horror-movie
    gross-outs. The action and special effects are mostly first-rate and
    Vogt-Roberts maintains a vaguely satiric tone that sidesteps

    My Rating : 3.5/5
