Amazing film, full of action for all the family...
I attended the film premiere in London on Tuesday for 'Kong Skull Island. I was there collecting autographs but

If you like your movies loud, action packed and full of top
line CGI effects this is the film for you. With a star packed cast
including Samuel l Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larsson and our own

The plot involves a group of
scientists and explorers backed up by the military heading for an
uncharted island in search of the mythic Kong and a domain of
Monsters. Anyone looking for an adventure film for the family to enjoy
will come away having seen a slice of good old fashioned Hollywood fun,
yes you can't take it seriously but its cast and crew deliver what they
promised in the trailer.
Samuel L Jackson showing that he is one of the
biggest movie stars around and so much fun to watch, Brie Larsson
bringing some glamour and Tom Hiddleston looking more and more a
candidate for the next James Bond. Add to a fine cast that clearly loved
filming around the globe in new places like Vietnam a series of amazing
set pieces like exploding helicopters, shoot up's, plus a cracking film
score and state of the art CGI effects with monsters galore you wonder
how on earth they do it. Normally films like this are too studio bound

fresh take on an old movie monster idea. Watch the money role in for
Warner brothers, you'll certainly have your money's worth, give it a
