Those bemoaning the lack of originality in today’s movies are advised to check out this genre hybrid, in which Anne Hathaway unwittingly wreaks havoc on Seoul using a kaiju-like monster that she controls whilst drunk.
Seriously! Upon realising her boozy behaviour and beastly party trick is creating mass destruction, she attempts to set things right. But somebody in town is intent on luring her back to her alcoholic ways. This all might sound like a recipe for disaster, but Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Open Windows) manages to pull it off with impressive special effects and committed performances from Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis. Colossal is a huge surprise that will be equally loved and loathed, but one thing everyone will agree on – there’s nothing else out there quite like it.
