Fantastic movie. I'm not sure I'd say it was better than G14, but it was still a great monster movie. Definitely focused on the monsters enough, unlike G14, but something was missing. Just can't put my finger on what I thought it was. Overall very engaging and the fight sequences are epic. ********** SPOILERS BELOW ********** Not sure how I feel about Kong's development. Marlow said "He's still growing" and also says something to the effect of "he'll get a lot bigger", but the skeletons of the two older apes seem to be similar to him in size. Also, I would worry about his fortitude; Kong passes out near the end of the movie when set on fire with napalm. I think that Godzilla has his hands full for their rematch in 2020, because Kong was an absolute beast at hand to hand and was even smart enough to employ weapons of opportunity, but if napalm can make him faint...well, I don't have to explain to anyone here the kind of punishment that Godzilla is used to standing up to. Castle Bravo, anyone? Also, if you're sticking around for the post-credits scene... Well, I hope you packed a lunch. The credits are long as hell. They made sure to list every actor, producer, stuntman, stage hand, anyone who pooped in any of the portapotties during filming, the guy who scrubbed said portapotties, his sister, her dog, the dog's fleas, my neighbor, your neighbor, and the various individualized tags Jimmy gave the toenails in his clipping collection. Oh, and when you think the credits are over, Billy fuckin' Mays shows up like "But wait, there's more!" I seriously thought they were over three times before they were actually over. The theater was empty and it was just me, my kids, my wife, and the people who wanted to clean the room that were left.
