An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa's treatments are not what they seem.
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.
There is no way the area around the monster sightings would remain open to the public when it was a continuous threat; the area would have been evacuated and quarantined until the situation was resolved. Without this colossal plot hole, of course, there would not be much of a story. See more »

Hi. She's the monster; I'm the robot.

If you're a deep thinker and introspection is your thing, you are going to thank God a movie like this came along as movies like this are so few and far between. It's definitely better for mature audiences, as in, they've lived a long time and are humble enough to see themselves in it. It, seriously, should connect with everyone, but if you're young and arrogant (as so many of us are when we're young,) the intense realities will not have a place to go and, sadly as I read in so many comments, the movie might be rejected. I encourage the haters to come back and see it again in a decade or so. I'd love to be there for the ah-hahs. My 19-year-old son is going to eat this one up, the old soul that he is. I can't wait to hear what he has to say when he sees it.
