This is a real pedal to the metal version of Kong Skull Island which barely stops for breath the whole runtime. There's no time set aside for any character development of the human cast but lets face it all we wanna see is Kong smash s**t up and thats what we get for a very brisk 65 minutes. I think these lightning paced edits work quite well for this type of film and you could certainly get through a few movies no problem on Movie Night with some of Maniac's economical edits. Some nice cuts in there too I particularly liked the intercutting of one of Kongs fights as John C Reilly relayed Kongs prowess to the island newcomers.
