Read the description and wondered how the writers and director are going to pull off the absurd premise without stupefying the actors and audience. Happy to report that they succeeded to deliver an original fantasy film with a clever message: be a superwoman/man, stand up and squash the monsters in our lives; that actions by a seemingly insignificant no-body can change the world – a case of the butterfly effect that tiny causes resulting colossal effects. On the other hand, it may just be a mental game drama about a woman facing demons in her head. Intriguing film that kept me guessing, thinking and applauding at the end.

Kind of a strange movie--and perhaps that's its charm. Colossal is one of those films that gets better after you've had a chance to digest it for a while. Anne Hathaway is the real attraction: as in Rachel Getting Married, this is a jarring role which plays against how we receive her persona in films like The Princess Diaries and even The Intern. Fortunately her star power diverts our attention away from a really tenuous plot device that attempts to tie this all together. The final two scenes in Seoul--the monster standoff and the empty bar--are worth sitting through the whole film to fully enjoy.

A great and creative film. This is a human drama with a nicely integrated bit of fantasy. Despite the weird premise, you shouldn't expect expect something super light or goofy.

More or less a chick flick so females will like the movie more than males. A so-so story, but Anne H. and Jason S. do a great job with their characters. Move the movie faster at some slow scenes and its enjoyable.

A combination of genres, unlikely locations, dark humor, and consistently great acting make for a weirdly satisfying movie.

Clever film! Not a classic monster movie (though it uses some of those elements) so don't let that keep you from watching this if you don't like that genre. Even the synopsis doesn't do this film justice in my opinion, as the film twists away from the initial premise and explores possible ramifications.

This is a terrible movie with an idiotic plot.

Not what I expected. More of a thriller than a comedy. Anne Hathaway gave a great performance but it just felt like something was missing overall.

Early scene - excuses:
I got into the car at 2. But then, I was going here. Well, I thought I was coming here. But then Georgia, wanted to go to the loft. You know I want to head home, so then I had to go to the loft. And when we got there, he was like... Well, now I want to take a nap. Then I'm waiting for her, until she wake up and then... I fell asleep. I have been asleep all day.
===
Listen...Georgia wanted to go, I didn't even want to go.
-Who the fxck is Georgia?
Natasha.
===
Well, you know like... if the monster only attacking Seoul... then all the rest of the world would stop caring, you know like... all the cease fire that happened.
