Synopsis


Colossal
After breaking up with her boyfriend and returning to her small hometown, a down-on-her-luck woman (Anne Hathaway) is shocked to discover that a Godzilla-like monster rampaging through South Korea is controlled by her movements while she's drunk. However, things get even more complicated when her monster battles a gigantic robot controlled by a childhood friend of hers (Jason Sudeikis). Nacho Vigalondo directed this sci-fi comedy, which received its world premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    I rented this strange & fantastic movie a while ago for $0.99 and I was curious about what kind of freaking movie it was. Without spoiling the plot, it was my kind of movie involving a lot of drinking, a lot of Anne Hathaway, and also other actors that really made me LOL. The plot is very weird but it's my type of crazy, fantasy, gigantic laughs & fun with mysterious giant monsters that never needed to be explained. Colossal freaky FUN!

    It's hard to think of this movie as cute, but it really kind of is. There's a giant monster attacking Korea as our heroine is having personal problems. The monster attacks are directly related to her actions and she doesn't know what to do. The script took a few twists and turns I did not expect and I am glad to be surprised. Nothing too spectacular but worth picking up on sale. Not bad, just not great.

    The movie Colossal doesn't fit easily into a single genre. It is not a movie about monsters, though you see monsters. It is not a romance flick, nor a true comedy. It will however make you think, and question what is behind what you see. Perhaps most puzzling for me was the sole Bonus item. Labeled as a deleted scene, it appears to be the same scene we watched in the movie. It does nothing to clarify the movie, but perhaps that is the point.

    The explanation for the monster's origin is a little cheesy, but perhaps that is homage to the classic 60s-70s campy Godzilla/Gamera films. However, this is a deeply emotional piece that, while a little predictable, is completely captivating. This is a personal drama and not a giant monster film. Still, since the monsters are the analogy, it would have been useful to have a few more moments of monster rampage. Very good movie!

    Great movie. Why no special features?

    Colossal is an utterly unique film. Do you like rom-coms? Do you like kaiju? Congratulations! Two great things that taste great together. To say anything more might detract from the experience. The film gets five stars, the disc gets four because it has a single special feature--a deleted scene. Come on, Universal.

    This is not your typical monster movie. There was romance, drama, comedy and a bit of suspense. Jason Sudeikis and Anne Hathaway were good choices for this movie. Both of these actors are two of my favorites and had good interaction with each other. It was an hour and fifty minutes that held my attention the whole way. Loved it!

    Original concept for your monster movie

    From the trailers, I thought that this movie would be more of a comedy than it ended up being. It is a dark comedy but ends up being less funny in the back half of the movie. It is still enjoyable and has a very satisfying ending. The entire concept is original and something I haven't seen before.

    I bought this, but could have easily been a renter. Never saw the ending coming. Took a while to get started. But my wife and I really enjoyed it. Will probably watch it again now that we know what goes on just to see from different point of view... but that will probably be it.
