Kong looked great! Good use of jungle weapons (IE thrown trees) and real feeling. Kong felt like he had real weight. The cast was fun too. I like Sam Jackson's character and how and why he was so bent on killing Kong. Reilly's slightly "gone mad" bit had some fun jokes, but they didn't seem to fit or land well within this movie. They seemed a bit too silly given the level of threat and the fact that the entire rest of the movie was playing it straight.
The effects looked good but the lizard bad guy things the "Skull Walkers" were meh... They were seemingly invincible to all the military guys, but very easy to kill for Brie Larson's character.
Anyway, I liked it, it was a fun "popcorn" movie, but it certainly didn't blow my socks off.
