Run to the theater as fast as possible, because this is a film that blends genre craziness with a twist to bring audiences something they've never seen.

Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudiekis wonderfully break their usual character types and provide performances that are just as genuine as they are funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
November 7, 2018
However, the fact that this is a fresh idea makes this movie worth seeing even if it doesn't work as well as it should.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
November 5, 2018
Like someone mashed Pacific Rim with Leaving Las Vegas, Vigalondo's screenplay is rarely clever.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
November 3, 2018
Leaves its audience with a lot to think about both regarding the implications of its premise, but what it has to say about toxic relationships, social expectations and the way we do (or don't) take ownership of our lives.

Even as an irresponsible drunk, Hathaway remains not only root-able, but someone to empathize with.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Colossal is one of the best movies of the year and for those who are complaining that we do not see original films in the cinema - well this is one of them.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
October 30, 2018
Colossal is darkly comic in its approach of using giant monsters to explore personal themes and it is consistently entertaining and engaging.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 30, 2018
Vigalondo may have made the most soulful film about gigantic, metropolis-smashing monsters yet.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
October 10, 2018
It's wonderfully eclectic and surprising, with just enough humor and absurd weirdness thrown in to make it intriguing. In short, Colossal is Being John Malkovich for the Toho generation.

[Hathaway's] quest is undoubtedly to negotiate amongst harmful masculinities in order to find the self-worth that has been denied her, and, in tandem with that, a place where she can belong.
August 30, 2018
A creatively original character driven film that is smart, dark, and consistently funny as it shines a limelight on director Nacho Vigalondo and stars Hathaway and Sudekis
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Colossal is an imperfect film, but it's unlike anything I've seen and among a sea of sad imitations, the film is a refreshing attempt to do something new.
August 23, 2018
Nacho Vigalondo, fails to create and unite wildly disparate and fanciful plot elements with the genius of Jonze.
August 22, 2018
Still, kudos to Hathaway for taking a punt on something so ambitious, and credit especially to Sudeikis (We're the Millers, Horrible Bosses), who proves a revelation. Sometimes it really does pay to go big or go home.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 22, 2018
There's a lot of laughter, suspense and fun as the film asks the viewer to suspend belief on a most entertaining trip you won't soon forget.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
August 21, 2018
Never underestimate the city-killing power of millennial self-pity.
August 5, 2018
Although, despite its shortcomings and critiques, Colossal is a nice indie alternative to the studio "monster movie" and could benefit those who want to escape reality for a couple of hours.
January 18, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 2, 2018
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...
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
