Very much enjoyed the monster upgrades and sense of humour from the characters. Not much in the way of story, but who needs that when you have a giant gorilla giving you the middle finger? 8/10.
The movie seemed slow to get started, but that was because it started contained. If you’re sticking to one big set piece, then that’s the trade-off. The characters made sense in their motivations and it was refreshing to see real humour rather than constant over-seriousness in this sort of film. CGI was mostly done well, and the gorilla out-acted the Rock with more charisma and personality than I expected (real credit to the motion capture actor). For lovers of the source material you could see where they put it in the movie. Great end-credits song too! Not a perfect movie, but perfectly enjoyable. 8/10.
