Did you ever wonder what happened after King Kong fell to his death off the Empire State Building back in 1933? How did New York City recover from his rampage? What became of Carl Denham, the man who brought the eighth wonder of the world to Manhattan in chains? Kong: King of Skull Island holds the answers to all those questions. This tremendous tale picks up in 1957, when Denham's son, Vincent, decides to investigate the events that culminated in the tragic fall of Kong. His journey will ultimately take him to Skull Island in search of answers. In that frightening lost land, Vincent braves prehistoric perils while piecing together the fate of a mighty civilization, and unlocks the astounding secret of the great wall that kept Kong in check.

The story keeps in the tradition of the original King Kong--a fantastic adventure that feels like a 1930s pulp. Some implausible plot developments keep the story from ever rising above that, though. Unfortunately, the narration overplays and overdramatizes everything. It is overly melodramatic, read as though the text were punctuated with lots of exclamation points!!!! Rather than impose such an excitable interpretation, I wish the production team had allowed the narrative to carry itself.
