    I can agree with several other comments. The movie is way too long and it's so unnecessary as you could easily just watch the original King Kong for the same effect. I'd say this version is the most unnecessary of them all as it doesn't have anything new to offer unless you count all the things that happen on the island and before which is probably the most unnecessary parts of this movie. 7 years 2 months ago

    The original is still the best, but this one is a good movie, that would've been better if they took off some 30 minutes from the Skull Island endless action sequences.

    And no Carl, it wasn't beauty that killed the beast, it was you, you arrogant f*cker!

    The film is a love letter to the original Kong and really made me want to see the original in its entirety more than anything. The movie is really three little films. I liked the mysterious boat ride a heck of a lot, and the last part, Kong's inevitable death, is touching even as an animatic. The middle part, however, is just one monster race/fight after another, and the extended edition simply adds an extra half hour of monster races and fights. Dull. 7 years 6 months ago
