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

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.

Nacho Vigalondo, fails to create and unite wildly disparate and fanciful plot elements with the genius of Jonze.

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.

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.

Never underestimate the city-killing power of millennial self-pity.

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.

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.

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...

December 31, 2017
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.

December 26, 2017
Colossal is darkly comical when it isn't being flippantly serious, flawed yet unlike anything you've seen before.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
December 20, 2017
But "Colossal" succeeds because [Anne] Hathaway provides a solid and engaging emotional anchor.

December 18, 2017
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...
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.
