The biggest ape of them all is back on the big screen.
Kong: Skull Island is taking over cinemas globally.
It's 1973, and scientist John Goodman convinces the White House to green light a mission to a remote island to check out the locals.
He gets a military escort straight from the jungles of Vietnam. Cue a fleet of Hueys and Samuel L Jackson leading his loyal platoon into who knows what, who knows where.
Well, we find out the 'who knows what' as soon as they fly into the 'who knows where' - and before we can say King Kong there are no more choppers, lots of dead bodies, and John C Reilly.
Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson are tracker and photojournalist slash eye candy in the two most under-baked of the characters.
They're soon convinced the only way to survive Skull Island is to make love not war - and making friends with the big guy may be their only hope.
Kong: Skull Island is certainly not short on action and setting this against the backdrop of the Vietnam War was a clever repositioning for many reasons, as was gathering a very good cast.
Maybe my expectations were set just a little high as it wasn't even close to a home run for me, but still plenty going on for most audiences to sink their rainy day teeth into.
