Speaking of the plot, I'll give a quick synopsis for you. A scientist that everyone thinks is crazy convinces the government to send him and a team of soldiers to investigate an uncharted island. While everyone assumes it's just a mission to explore the island, the crazy scientist actually went there to prove his theory that giant monsters roam the earth. Sure enough, Kong shows up and does his monkey smash thing while the crew try to reach the extraction point to get the hell out of dodge. There's generic in fighting amongst the group where one faction wants to kill Kong while the other half sees him as the savior against the other monsters roaming Skull Island. In a sentence I never thought I'd say, the standoff between Kong and Samuel L. Jackson is satisfying. It also ends exactly how you'd expect it to.
