  Action, tragedy, humor, and gigantic creatures. The new Kong: Skull Island reimagines the classic tale of King Kong, an enormous creature that resembles an Ape. Many movies have been made and remade about Kong; however, the 2017 movie Kong: Skull Island takes it to the next level.

  In the opening scenes of the movie, Bill Randa (John Goodman) and Houston Brooks (Corey Hawkins) who work for a company called Monarch (the same company who is called to look at the skeleton of Godzilla in the 2014 remake) that is a secret scientific organization that study possible monster existence around the world.

  With the new satellite pictures of earth from the new satellites, Monarch wants to explore Skull Island for signs of monster life. They join Landsat on an expedition and hire James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston) as their guide.

  Unlike the other King Kong movies, Kong is the protector of a tribe of people that live on Skull Island. Kong defends them from ancient lizard monsters. This new Kong movie has a fantastic soundtrack and score that helps tell the tone of scenes as well as let the movie flow easier.

  The rest of the movie is filled with epic fights and music that help make the scenes come to life. Henry Jackman, the person responsible for the music in the movie, created a soundtrack that gave me the feeling the movie was almost going to burst off the screen. This movie is highly recommended to anyone who likes action and awesome soundtracks.

  The making of this movie is the start of a series of movies that will lead up to a King Kong vs. Godzilla movie set to come out in 2020, after the release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. With how well Godzilla (2014) did and how well Kong: Skull Island is doing it is reasonable to assume that the next few monster movies will be just as good.
