Andres Clemente

Andres takes a look at the movie  “Kong: Skull Island”….

Starts fast from the beginning, with an amazing helicopter sequence in the first 15 minutes.
Great special effects, specially fights between giant animals.
Bad performances by the most veteran actors (Samuel L. Jackson and John Goodman)
All characters have zero development, just there because you needed every stereotype in your survival film (no nonsense military guy, dashing leading man, beautiful damsel in distress, comic relief, etc).
What is Andres’s final opinion?


In the last hour we have a quick chat with Diana Sanchez, artistic director of the IFF (International Film Festival, Panama). Starting on the 30th March through to the 5th April. Get more info here….
