I liked Peter Jackson's King Kong film, finding myself appreciating and connecting with Andy Serkis's Kong. This iteration does not have that personal connection: Kong disappears from the screen for long periods of time and when he is onscreen, he is all rampaging warrior. His posture is strange: upright, like a human; but there is no personality peering out of those big brown eyes this time. Still, K:SI is hugely entertaining. And as has been said, sometimes you don't know you needed to see a gas-mask-wearing Tom Hiddleston slicing mutant pterodactyls with a samurai sword until you see a gas-mask-wearing Tom Hiddleston slicing mutant pterodactyls with a samurai sword. Escape accomplished.
