Critic Consensus: Colossal's singular strangeness can be disorienting, but viewers who hang on may find that its genre-defying execution -- and Anne Hathaway's performance -- is well worth the ride.

Movie Info

Gloria is an out-of-work party girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.

Colossal is one of those movies with the amount of creativity that some directors never produce in their whole lives.

I have not felt this kind of catharsis while watching a film in a long time.

A surprisingly deft story about a particular type of toxic masculinity that has everything to do with wanting to loom large over another person, to keep them cowering in your shadow.

"Colossal" takes diminishing advantage of an amusing premise, one that seems made for satirical treatment yet is executed with an increasingly awkward semi-seriousness the characters aren't depthed (or likable) enough to ballast.

The movie presents its plot like a ridiculous gamble, and keeps pulling it off, somehow managing to justify its existence.

Determinedly bizarre, psychologically inquisitive and in the end rather wonderful.
