I rarely compare movies with whatever any was completed etc. And in this case, too, in this sense is not see. The film is quite not clear. With one hand, it is perfectly formed story, and on the other something not enough can be light indents from genre gave about itself to know, but if was in side of the horrors that is no doubt a plus, but in the direction of Comedy — negative. There are frightening moments, or even better to say holding in tension. But there comedic moments that personally, I did not the topic, although diluted film, and was really funny for the audience.

Next, one significant minus — special effects. What as for the Kongs, and other animals, almost the whole of the environment, and almost all explosions, it all level. Here is only "almost" environment of course in lesser extent catchy to the eye, but here is the explosions and especially the beginning. There is not so rushed in his eyes are explosions and their location, size in relation each other people are just awful.

The story itself, so let's say satisfactory. No it some of the highlights of special inks. All clear, accessible and simple, perhaps even trite. But by and large, the film is not boring, time passes quickly enough and there is unnecessary guff, all have meaning and action definitely a big plus. Though with characters left imbalance. In compared scientists military happened in the most part, not too serious. Next — emotions. Their it is not enough. Of course there are good moments, but still on the other hand at times I wanted to say: "Damn, you big APE, what you stand; you as if you see it every day." And, no, I mean that the actors have to portray faces of horror, but the reaction to this is the horror of people in reality can be completely different, but it would be good to find the middle, then it would be awesome.

As for the actors, it is also not everything went smoothly. Of course That Hiddleston coming out and his charisma, and acting on the first place, interesting character in General and takes a main position, but it manifests itself in the best plan. Samuel L. Jackson is rather mixed, with one, all well and the facial expressions, and kept the whole movie in one specificity, but something not enough. Bree Larson absolutely nothing unusual or new showed just a pretty face for movies would roughly sounded. Toby Kebbell, who plays major Chapman made his character the best of all soldiers, because he has a minor history, but of those who was in the military, he stood out for his virility and militancy, and he really believed them.

At the end of the film is average. To run straight and see it I would not recommended, but if you are particularly bored, then why not because at least a little bit but the film brings moments of emotion. excitement and experiences.

In the art there are many images that have many interpretations by different artists. Thus, we have the opportunity to see the history or character different points of view. So happened with king king and its fresh incarnation in the film "Kong: skull Island". (Scary to think that since the first appearance of king Kong for the screen went 84 (!) year).

It would be difficult to assume that for implementation of such stories will be invited unknown actors. So here we have a really impressive cast. Not going to mention all at once, in the beginning, and better mention it for review.

The first character who makes you say something like "Wow Wow wow" — Pathfinder James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston). What other type could would like the movie to realize That? Personally, I hard to imagine it being a very good boy in glasses and a tweed jacket. If it has such a cinematic experience — I want to see!/ But here is the "dangerous sexuality" — just about him. However, a bit overdone with pravotu. Here he is simply unkillable.

Of course, not without pieces of American pathos: from stereo the helicopter sounds heroic and motivating music. Stamp, places — spectacular.

The next notable character — Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson). He spelled out of jaded template image of a soldier of the American army: a soldier, nothing else in life is not able; man, confident and without talking taking orders/calls. Why not?

The filmmakers of the number of characters on a mysterious island decided not to confine Kong, and go ahead. However, in the number of unusual animals has turned bust. I remember saying: "Good — little by little".

Separately want to note the work of art Directors. Because thanks to them were created such unrealistic believable atmosphere of the island (why, when the budget in 185 million dollars).

If a little to return to the scenario, it should be noted that it to over the paintings develop all new and new conflicts, among which are the unexplored conflict with man. Us much easier to fight, and to fight force with that we understand than to try to understand? Most likely...

One of the most notable paintings in performed by Jordan Here-Roberts continues the story of the heart of the mighty creature of the 20-21 centuries. Tempting more — for the project was chosen a completely inexperienced Director, no visible stellar works, and here — budget 190 million? Sounds promising and scary.

Begin to look — "where's the money?" With first seconds, the picture immerses us in the World, which is diligently created for being able to IMPRESS. I was lucky enough to attend the Hollywood premiere of the picture with the actors, film crew and many, many others, who worked this large-scale canvas. Scale has literally everything, probably for this reason that king Kong has lost its exclusivity losing the "king" in the title. Interesting to see the people who worked on a picture — even them many of the scenes are a surprise that not to mention a simple audience such as we you.

I found it interesting how refreshed modern acting "cinnabar" for last two years. New faces, new favorites embodies the beloved classic story and images attract special attention.

Actress bree Larson, so in the number one thing "young" cinema. Despite his young age and already an Oscar winner, she 100% coped with her role and gave the picture a special style. We remember the love stories are a cross-cutting thread that runs through all the emergence of a large gorilla in a movie. Kong — is no exception. If love so just her.

It should be noted that we are dealing with prehistory all those of the seven previous stories about Kong. Perhaps that is why the story becomes predictable and quite logical. Here you familiar helicopters, "cool man" and pretty woman with weapons in hand. The message is clear already from the first minute.

As for the plot, it here we presents the history, in which people decided to join at  the"foreign" territory. We all know what it usually ends. Two-hour painting can be divided into 5 pieces. It reminds me of the classic construction of any dramatic works, where is the beginning, the plot, the main part, the denouement and the ending.

Special attention is drawn to camera work. Today computer technology has reached the limits when filming on the nature have it seems totally unnecessary. But not so, Kong picture fascinates with its scale details are visible and the emphasis is placed not only through editing, sound, directing decisions, but and directly look awesome on the Larry Background. We remember it large-scale operation in "300 believers," "Batman vs. Superman", "Super 8", and here he decided to outdo himself. Maybe working in the television series "Stay alive" partly influenced selection producers in favor of Larry. We deal with "picture" which makes not just follow the plot, but and look at the features of nature with admiration. Do a lot of in the film is reminiscent of television project with teams, opponents, competition and doing to win. Confused only muddy clean clothes out depending circumstances.

If we talk about "voice-over" side of the film, mention should be made of the incredible special effects that filled the Kogn. The figure of the main character is executed perfectly. It? Big, strong, detailed and best — not the only its kind. The authors calmly quoting in painting famous scenes from other films, feel free to blow up and set fire, kill, poke — all need to intimidate unsophisticated audience.

In conclusion, it remains only highly recommend this picture to all lovers of Hollywood movies. The theater will be the best solutions, so how big sees on distance.
