It has no idea what kind of movie it wants to be. It doesn't know if it wants to be a comedy, an action movie, a drama...it's just depressing.

Entirely original, writer-director Nacho Vigalondo's movie scores points about the catastrophes unwitting Americans enable overseas (through their voting choices, among other things), and also says something about sexual harassment and male privilege...

This is a totally unbelievable movie, but it is entertaining and it is a pretty good character study of the two main characters. Jason Sudeikis is scary good in this movie. The understated way he becomes increasingly malevolent is very creepy.

Colossal possesses some real depth in its acting and its description of human relationships, it's just a shame that when it sinks a few beers and gets up to do the monster mash: things get a little too silly.

The wiles of the script are noticed, but not what moves the characters. [Full review in Spanish]

Funny and strange.

Colossal is darkly comical when it isn't being flippantly serious, flawed yet unlike anything you've seen before.

But "Colossal" succeeds because [Anne] Hathaway provides a solid and engaging emotional anchor.

While the allegorical parts of the film invite you to think, it's probably best to turn off some of your brain for the explanatory backstory and the conclusion, which I found to be less satisfying than the grander, who-knows-why conceit...

Colossal pretensions and colossal length, for such a threadbare morality tale.

Nacho Vigalondo delivers us a top-notch kaiju monster movie that also doubles as a romantic comedy.
November 10, 2017
Despite its overcompensating title, Colossal is characterized by this quintessential lack.
November 1, 2017
It takes a while to decipher what this weirdly unique film sets out to project. A preposterous ending doesn't help either but if you like ambiguous storytelling, you might fancy this one.

If you get the vein of this layered comedy, you'll have a monster of a ball for sure.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

It all gets a bit too clever for its own good, and a strange film about the dangers of drinking turns out to be an excessively contrived and over-long film about memory and relationships.

September 26, 2017
Colossal presents a wildly original concept that tethers absurd science fiction to very real social problems, all within the guise of an offbeat romantic comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Much credit has to be given to Spanish film-maker Nacho Vigalondo for having the guts to make such a unique flick, a mix of drama, comedy, and sci-fi.

September 15, 2017
Colossal is an offbeat film that uses the monster genre and a good dose of fantasy to tell a very real and human story. [Anne] Hathaway and [Jason] Sudeikis have us believing, and it's no mean feat.

[Colossal] is so bent it fashions its own shelf to sit on.

September 8, 2017
I'm not sure if the place the movie gets to in the end is worth the path it takes to get there, but there's a lot to be said for taking the scenic route.
