Film Review: Kong: Skull Island

First, it’s not three hours long and second, it gets to the point. Set in 1973, an expedition is heading to Skull Island. The expedition includes government agent Bill Randa (John Goodman), a young biologist Houston Brooks (Corey Hawkings), former British Special Air Service Captain James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston), a pacifist photojournalist Mason Weaver (Brie Larson), a US Army Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L.
