I liked it a lot, though it could have been better.
All the scenes with people are really expendable. Bland characters, no development, and I never cared about any of them except the pilot. Hiddleston sleepwalks through most of it.
On the up side, the scenes with Kong are fantastic, I love his "look", they nailed it 1933 style, and he steals every scene he is in. His opponents are a bit uninspired, but the King himself keeps you watching.
The script is a bit shaky, so is the continuity, that could have been better.
For me, this is the perfect "warm-up" for what's to come.
