Consensus: Colossal's singular strangeness can be disorienting, but viewers who hang on may find that its genre-defying execution -- and Anne Hathaway's performance -- is well worth the ride.

Clearly a movie designed for niche audiences, it will not strike everyone the same way. But for those who embrace Vigalondo's wild wavelength, the rewards are innumerable.

"Colossal" is a challenge, no doubt, but writer-director Nacho Vigalondo pulls it off with a visionary flourish.

It takes a while to decipher what this weirdly unique film sets out to project. A preposterous ending doesn't help either but if you like ambiguous storytelling, you might fancy this one.

Toronto Star

It's a sci-fi/horror/psychodrama/comedy/thriller /revenge/romance film - and that jumble of a description not only works, it does so in spectacular fashion.

From its weird little prologue to a nearly perfect ending, Colossal is a trip in multiple meanings of that word.

If you get the vein of this layered comedy, you'll have a monster of a ball for sure.

San Diego Reader

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.

Rafer Guzman

It's a brilliant concept, executed by writer-director Vigalondo with a perfect balance of pop-culture irony and sincere storytelling.

The Mail on Sunday (UK)

It all gets a bit too clever for its own good, and a strange film about the dangers of drinking turns out to be an excessively contrived and over-long film about memory and relationships.

The trailer was something completely different and made this out to be comedy. This turned into something quite dark towards the middle and you soon understand… More

Colossal is a film that ought to have been a lot more fun than it turned out to be. On one hand it is a brilliant metaphorical tale about alcohol abuse and… More
