Colossal Description

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend (Dan Stevens), is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown where she's reunited with her childhood friend (Jason Sudeikis). 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. Experience the wildly original film critics are calling, "a great deal of fun" (New York Times).

    I should have just left it at the trailer. The trailer made it seem funny. It was not. Too many unexplained plots. Too much abuse from Jason Sudekis character and too much taking it from Anne Hathaway’s charater to really be a comedy. Too much even for a "Dark Comedy". The idea seemed really good though.
  • i dont need a title, f u

    Such good actors, with considerable screen chemistry, enjoyable setting and cinematography (except the cgi). All cruelly chained to the most intolerable story you’ll ever sit through. Watched it all the way through only for the the positives, knowing I’d hate it in the end.
  • Monster Drama

    A very intersting, and unusual, plot that works well. Anne Hathaway's charachter is boring but I liked how the Jason Sudekis charachter ended up being unpredictable. Worth the rent.
  • Comedy mislabel but still excellent!

    Somehow this was labeled as a comedy and yes there are some comedic undertones but it's a sci-fi drama with a sprinkle of romance to be more precise. The story was excellent although it leaving several unanswered questions. I think Jason Sudakis was a miscast for this. I hate to typecast but he seems too nice of a guy to play an abusive bully. While he did an excellent job in the role I felt like I was watching Santa hit Mrs. Claus and it didn't sit well. I guess it means he did a good job if it made me dislike him a little. Anne Hathaway as usual delivered a great performance but she's falling into the niche of the frustrated/awkward romantic who can't seem to figure out what she wants. Overall I recommend this movie to those like a good story with open expectations. The monster doesn't get a lot of screen time but the stories really not about that anyways.

    This isn't a comedy, and if both the main characters in this movie didn't have serious unexplained psychological problems then it was incredibly minor (or again unexplained) problems that turned them into pathetic people. It's a shame because I liked the cast, just not the characters they portrayed.
  • Why does everyone like this?

    80% on rotten tomatoes? This movie is 80% rotten, 20% rotting. It is a joke that takes itself too seriously and spends most of the movie trying to explain how the joke could have happened when they should have just released a 2 minute joke video on YouTube instead. All of the contrived drama around the joke of someone controlling a giant monster is lost in the depressing story they wove around it. By the time you get to the joke scenes you are too depressed by the story to laugh at it.
  • Just a stupid waste of time.

    It's rare to find a movie this bad. Don't waste your time.
  • Worst movie I have ever seen

    I feel like I just wasted two hours of my life, in what can only be described as the most awful, poorly written and directed movie ever. I never leave reviews, yet I felt this deserved one... I can't believe the Rotten Tomatoes ratings, nor these two actors participating in this terrible terrible clip.
  • Worth seeing

    The preview is misleading in the sense that the movie is presented as a conventionally funny romantic comedy, with a running interlude of sci-fi and fantasy that is charming simply due to its wackiness. In reality, the film was so much more than that. Those who disliked the movie should explore the genre of dark comedy. The movie brings up issues of egotism and flawed human nature, while simulataniously maintaing this surreal, sci-fi plot that is effectively original and ridiculous in a GOOD way. It really is a film for people who are looking for an unconventional story with depth, and not just one with the cliche, "girl dates douchebag, but leaves for her hometown and finds a happy ending with her childhood best friend" story.

    The previews showed it was going to be a cute romantic comedy. About an hour in it takes an extremely dark turn when the main male lead starts beating up the female lead. The ending still didn't explain why they were monsters?! It's like the ending just left everything open. Don't waste your money.
  • Colossal Hot Mess!

    Interesting and original premise. Far fetched but meant to be. Go with the fantasy and enjoy it for what it is. Fun, light fare.
  • Cool movie!

    It baffles me why so many people didn't like it. Dark, funny, ironic, complex and surreal. If you can't handle multiple emotions at once then I guess it isn't for you.
