Kong-Skull Island

I would like to watch Kong – Skull Island. It stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, and John C. Reilly. The film is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and written by Dan Gilroy, Max Borenstein and Derek Connolly, from a story by John Gatins

The film follows a team of scientists and Vietnam War soldiers during 1973, including former British Special Air Service Captain James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston) who is hired by government agent Bill Randa (John Goodman) to guide an expedition to map out the uncharted “Skull Island” somewhere in the Pacific. Randa also recruits the Sky Devils, a helicopter squadron led by Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) his right-hand, Major Jack Chapman (Toby Kebbell) and Captain Earl Cole (Shea Whigham) to escort them to the island. The group is also joined by pacifist photojournalist Mason Weaver (Brie Larson), who suspects that it is a corrupt military operation fronted by Monarch industries.

Arriving on Skull Island, Packard’s men begin dropping explosives despite Conrad’s objections. Predictably The helicopters are suddenly attacked and many are destroyed. The survivors are faced with the task of staying alive in a dangerous primordial World full of giant killer creatures. Their only hope for rescue is a resupply team that will meet them at the island’s northern end in three days time. Meanwhile Conrad, Weaver, Brooks, biologist San Lin (Jing Tian), soldier Reg Slivko (Thomas Mann) and Landsat employee Victor Nieves (John Orti), among others, encounter local Iwi natives and meet Hank Marlow (John C. Reilly), a missing pilot who crash-landed on the island in 1944 with a Japanese pilot.

Marlow explains that Kong is the island’s guardian and is worshipped as a god by the natives for protecting them from the Skullcrawlers, reptilian underground monsters who have slaughtered Kong’s ancestors, leaving him as the last of his kind. Conrad and Weaver later learn from Monarch Industries that Kong is not the only monster and that many other monsters such as Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah also exist.

Conrad’s group sets off down the river in a boat recovered by Marlow, where they are attacked by flying reptiles. Marlow reluctantly leads both Conrad and Packard’s team to the Forbidden Zone, a forgotten battleground between Kong’s ancestors and Skullcrawlers where they are attacked by Skullcrawlers. Conrad decides to lead the non-military personnel back to the boat so they can rendezvous with the resupply team. While scouting the path ahead, Conrad Marlow and Weaver decide to save Kong. However Packard disagrees and tries to clobber kong. Conrad and Weaver convince the other soldiers to spare Kong, but Packard refuses. The group plus King Kong are then suddenly attacked by the Big One, an Alpha Skullcrawler dubbed “Ramarak” in an explosive and exciting showdown during which Packard and Cole are killed.
