Continuity mistake: When the group has just encountered Kong, a visually dramatic scene shows Kong silhouetted against a deep orange setting sun. Yet immediately before and immediately after the scene, the sun is high in the sky and it does not get dark for what would be several hours in the movie timeline. (00:31:50)
Kong: Skull Island (2017)
Directed by: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly, Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Toby Kebbell
Other mistake: Throughout the film Mason goes through all sorts of shenanigans - explosions, fire fights, falling off a cliff, almost drowning, this woman really goes through the wringer. It's a bit surprising then, that at the very end of the film when the good guys finally come to the rescue that she looks like she has just finished posing for a shampoo commercial with not a hair out of place.
Hank Marlow: Kong's a pretty good king. Keeps to himself, mostly. This is his home, we're just guests. But you don't go into someone's house and start dropping bombs, unless you're picking a fight.
Question: Maybe I blinked, or maybe they cut a scene. How did Kong get tangled up in chains while he was fighting the big one?
