I went to see this yesterday. The film is a different take on Kong and not like the King Kong film where he dies at the end. It is sort of along the same lines where people go to the island not knowing much about it but it's a very different film.
There's alot more action and Kong appears almost straight away when they get to the island. He's also much bigger than the Kong in King Kong. The reason for this because the film is setting up for Kong vs Godzilla film which will be out in about 4 years time and before then Godzilla 2.
Overall i thought it was good film. I give it 7.5/10
I do wish they would stop remaking these old movies... Its like hollywood has lost the ability to come up with new ideas :( KONG vs GODZILLA... come on,,,, i give up :)
Classics are the best
