Kong Skull Island is glorious! I love the “banana for scale” dramatic shots. He’s as huge as those pillars in Halong Bay!
If you’ve seen the posters, it’s pretty much what the visual style looks like on film. I personally like it. Unlike Pacific Rim or Godzilla that I think is too dark you barely see anything, Kong Skull Island is brightly colored. Visually pleasing. Perhaps too heavy on the yellow tint but it looks different from most recent monster films so that’s an applause from me.
And thank goodness, no gorilla-woman romance whatsoever.
