Grisly film...is a bit too much

PG-13: intense action

Kong is dope

Kong is a positive message about being misunderstood and yet trying to help animals from poachers. One good brother, one bad that uses robotics to create mechanical animals to hurt Kong. Great animation and excelletn pro-social messages.
