Can a movie smoothly transition from one genre to another? The answer is a colossal yes!
9 April 2017 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Colossal tells the story of Gloria(Anne Hathaway). Gloria has a slight addiction to alcohol. Soon personal events in her life, forces her to move back to her hometown, from New York City. Around the same time, a massive monster begins attacking Seoul, a city in South Korea. Gloria has this eerie sensation that, this monster's rampage is somehow connected to her downward spiral.

Colossal is a one of a kind film. You have never seen anything like this movie before. Despite being a sci-fi film, the script by writer-director Nacho Vigalondo is completely original. This is a welcome change, in this era of movie studios' obsession to start movie franchises & have shared movie universes. This film is genre-hopping shenanigans, in its best form. Colossal doubles up as a comedy, drama & sci-fi movie, changing genres from time to time effortlessly, without messing up anything. Kudos Nacho Vigalondo. The visual effects are superb. The performances are mind blowing. Anne Hathaway is spectacular as Gloria. Hathaway gives us another unforgettable performance. Jason Sudeikis has given the best performance of his career as Oscar. Sudeikis essays the various shades of his complex character, with utmost sincerity & grace. Austin Stowell is great as Joel. Tim Blake Nelson is awesome as Garth. Dan Stevens is brilliant as Tim. Hannah Cheramy & Nathan Ellison are impressive as Young Gloria & Young Oscar, respectively. Colossal is a must watch for everyone, who is tired of watching the same old genre of movies on the big screen.
