December 3, 2017
Colossal pretensions and colossal length, for such a threadbare morality tale.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 25, 2017
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
October 10, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
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.
August 27, 2017
The concept of Colossal is so irresistible, it's almost impossible to believe that a movie as fumbling as Colossal could have possibly been made out of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Colossal feeld like something of a liberatory tale.
August 9, 2017
A strange and unfortunate mixture of comedy, melodrama and fantasy. [Full review in Spanish]
August 3, 2017
What first seems to be a cosmic comic lark, a goofy twist on the monster movie, gets dark in a very human way without losing the film's creative charge or director Nacho Vigalondo's sense of humor and poetic justice.
July 24, 2017
A tragicomedy disguised as a romantic comedy with though themes that raises disturbing questions. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 8.3/10
July 23, 2017
Don't let the posters fool you - this is a film about abuse.
Full Review | Original Score: Recommended
July 12, 2017
It has the attractive presence of Anne Hathaway in the starring role and a series of twists and turns that goes pretty well with both the melodrama and the giant monster movies. [Full review in Spanish]
June 30, 2017
It is a simple film, with a simple but deep plot that, however, is rarely predictable. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 8.5/10

The film is an original, funny, and surprisingly cathartic experience, a unique combination of content and themes that delivers laughs as well as thoughtful points of conversation.
