Colossal movie poster

Other than a prologue flashback to a Transformerzilla-ish creature attacking South Korea, there’s nothing irregular about the setup for this story of an irresponsible drunk (Anne Hathaway) who gets kicked to the curb by her boyfriend and moves back into her parents’ abandoned home. Whether she wants it or not, the only one offering assistance is a former childhood admirer and grown-up town barkeep (Jason Sudeikis). Their bad-blood backstory doesn’t officially surface until the third act, but it’s apparent in Sudeikis’ every movement. It’s best that writer-director Nacho Vigalondo never once tries to explain how Hathaway, and subsequently Sudeikis, telepathically control the aforementioned Michael Bay rejects from the safety of their neighborhood playlot; that might have sapped some of the fun of watching the duo go all Rock’em Sock’em Robots through the streets of Seoul. If you’re in the mood for a monster movie, revenge-tinged romance, social satire, or simply a good time at the multiplex, consider Colossal entertainment. 2017.
