Storyline

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.

Goofs

In the final flashback to Gloria and Oscar's youth, a comic book is shown falling from Oscar's backpack. The back cover of the comic features a partial quote from David S Goyer and mentions his films Batman Begins (2005) and The Invisible (2007). The flashback occurs twenty-five years before the present day of the film, so either Colossal is set in 2032 at the earliest -- which does not appear to be the case -- or the book is an anachronism.

This is a love-it or hate-it movie.
23 August 2018 | by nancyldraperSee all my reviews

This is a love-it or hate-it movie. If you were looking for a RomCom or Kaiju movie, you may be in the hate-it camp. If, however, you want the clever outworking of a dark metaphor presenting itself as a mystery, you may have found a film you can appreciate. That might, also, have been the draw for the cast. Unusual roles for all the actors, performed well. Anne Hathaway held our attention. In terms of storytelling, there were times when the metaphor and the mystery collided with each other and the audience may be left (ironically) scratching their heads, trying to fit the pieces together. With that said, I am giving this film a 7 (clever) out of 10. {A Dark Metaphor}
