KONG: SKULL ISLAND is a US fantasy adventure in which a team of scientists and soldiers explore an uncharted island in the South Pacific.

Threat

Multiple scenes depict characters being chased and attacked by giant fantastical creatures. In one such scene, a character is shown after having been impaled through the mouth by the leg of a giant insect, although there is no strong wound detail on screen. Another tense sequence occurs when characters pilot helicopters through a severe storm.

Violence

There is moderate fantasy violence in clashes between soldiers and giant creatures, and between the creatures themselves. A character's arm is torn off, but the image occurs in silhouette and there is no strong detail. One creature kills another by pulling out what appear to be internal organs from its mouth. Another character is attacked off screen, resulting in a splash of blood. A character swings a sword at another man who catches the blade in his hands, and we see a small amount of blood leak around his fingers.

Language

There is infrequent strong language, including 'f**k' and partially obscured use of 'motherf**ker'. Other, milder terms include 'son of a bitch', 'bastard', 'shit' and 'balls'.

Other issues include a brief and slightly gory image of a human skull, found in the aftermath of an attack by one of the creatures. There are also brief shots of people smoking what appears to be opium in a club.
