Seems like a movie that doesn't know what it wants to be. Also giant Kong is pointless. Also what the hell are those other creatures supposed to be? Not dinosaurs, that's for sure.

The reason why Kong is that big is because they are setting up a King Kong vs Godzilla film that takes place after the Godzilla from a couple of years ago. They confirmed that he is 100 feet tall in this movie. However, he is just an adolescent in this film. By the time the Kong Vs Godzilla film comes out, he will be big enough to square off against Godzilla.
The Kong Vs Godzilla film was confirmed last year.

Movie looks good, and of course Sam Jackson is in the movie.

Oh, right. Forgot about that. I'm actually cool with the Godzilla vs Kong concept. As long as they have fun with it like Pacific Rim. Not sure why we need a whole movie just for setting up that Kong is big now, though.
