Colos­sal (15)

The Galloway News - - WEEKEND TICKET -

Anne Hath­away con­trol­ling a gi­ant mon­ster ram­pag­ing through Seoul with her mind.

As con­cepts go, Colos­sal’s is far from run-of-the-mill and di­rec­tor Na­cho Vi­ga­londo’s bonkers in­die makes for fun-but-flawed view­ing.

Hath­away does a fine job play­ing an un­rav­el­ling hero­ine who comes to the re­al­i­sa­tion that there’s more to life than booze. Jason Sudeikis is as charm­ing as ever, but Vi­ga­londo gifts him with a lay­ered char­ac­ter who takes some dark turns.

The up and down tone won’t be for ev­ery­one and the bleak fi­nal act sucks the life out of pro­ceed­ings. Orig­i­nal­ity in Hol­ly­wood has to be em­braced, though, and Vi­ga­londo and his cast take us on an off-the-wall jour­ney.
