MOVIE REVIEW: COLOSSAL (Nacho Vigalondo, 2016)

Started as a cool concept where Anne Hathaway controlled a Godzilla/Cloverfield-like monster in Seoul, but eventually abandoned its metaphors and never went beyond its “There’s a monster in all of us” tagline. I wonder what Charlie Kaufman could have done with this conceit.

By the time it reached its final act, it had turned into an actual disaster by way of Ashley Judd revenge B-movies where all men were the real monsters.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
