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.
