Kong started off around world war 2. two guys landing from a parachute onto this island, the two guys were American and japanese pilots. They were about to square off then they were interrupted by this large ape. then fast forward to 1973, Bill Randa who is a U.S. government agent, hires a guy named James Conrad who is from the British special pilot services and also has great skills in tracking. so they needed him for just that. tracking. And they are headed to get to Skull Island. So now we have Captain Earl Cole, Major Jack Chapman, who are accompanied with Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard who leads the helicopter squad and Mason Weaver who has his believes about this trip to Skull Island. On a mission to map out the island Packard has his guys drop explosives. Then Kong comes and attacks the helicopter, destroys half of the men and now scattered across the island is a couple left survivors from the attack.
On Skull Island majority of the survivors Glenn Mills,who is a pilot, Randa, Steve Woodward and Packard reunite. Randa and Packard gets into a confrontation and Randa reveals some of Packard’s secrets. Then we have the other surviving group, Conrad, Weaver and a couple others to name a few. They are on a mission to meet up with a resupply squad that should be arriving to the island in about three days. While waiting they are awaiting the resupply team Conrad and his group come across and older Marlow and the local natives of the island,and that they basically worship Kong for protecting them from these monsters called Skull Crawlers and he is the islands guardian. Packard and his team try to make it to Chapman, but Chapman has some issues of his own as a Skull crawler is trying to kill him. Conrad’s team is helping Marlow build a boat from plane pieces. The boat is now complete and they now can get in touch with Packard and his team. Packard is telling the crew that they are on a mission to find Chapman but he has something else in mind.
