Colossal

Critics 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.

Audience Reviews for Colossal

    The premise of a woman being connected to a kaiju on the other side of the world is so insane you gotta admire that someone went through with it. Unfortunately, there are so unexplained plot holes throughout the story unfolding, but Hathaway's charm makes up for it. There are some character developments that seem to come from out of nowhere and turn the rather light hearted comedy of the first half in a rather serious metaphor of abusive relationships later one. That feels odd. Still, overall pretty entertaining.

    In a very interesting mix, there are two films here: one is typically sci-fi about a woman who discovers that she has a very strange power and two, at the same time she realizes a terribly humiliating weakness for abuse. It'll be for you to decide which of the stories carries more weight but I thought the resolution was socko. Nice too was the timeliness of the production given the headlines of the day. The cast delivers big time performances in this nuanced production. Why have the fans missed this???

    Joyously weird. Vigalondo successfully upends the cliches of both romantic comedies and kaiju movies but his most subversive choice is to make every male character some kind of villain Hathaway has to overcome.

    Makes enough pseudo-sense that those who are turned off by absurdism will be able to handle it, but still bizarre enough to get those who are fans of it on board. There might be some odd choices made in characterisation, and it's a far from perfect film, but Colossal works for me in a big way, and I want to see more original material make it like Colossal did.
