The movie is not bad, just very difficult to recommend to anyone to go see.

The movie Colossal has a lot missing in it, like the whole monster and human connection or what led to what. Yeah, there was lightning and the need for us to use our imagination, but why just these two people? Why not other monster’s in other places controlled by other people?

Anyways, the movie was not bad to watch and it was not boring, the producers found a way to use very few cast to pass the message they wanted.

Colossal does not have fascinating CGI so do not go looking for any. There is no monster on monster action fight, so do not go looking for that too. The only thing that made this movie not a bad watch is the action of the characters. Anne Hathaway for one was just amazing in this movie.

Here is the plot, Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is a struggling unemployed writer and she is a raging alcoholic. The only way she is getting by is by taking advantage of her boyfriend Tim (Dan Stevens). When Tim got tired of watching over her and she refusing to change from her alcoholic ways with her friends he dumps her. He packs her things and told her to leave.
Without any choice on the matter she leaves and goes back to her childhood home in New England. While there she reunites with an old childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis). Oscar runs a bar and gives Gloria a job there.

Gloria now works at the bar and gets to hangout with two of Oscar’s friends and they drink together.
While sleeping off on a bench near a children's playground after another night of drinking. At the same time, a giant reptilian monster appears in Seoul. The monster caused a lot of damage and left many dead.
When Gloria gets home she comes to the realization that the she caused the monster to manifest. She also discovers she is able to control the monster’s movement as the monster mirrors her movement.

She shares this secret with Oscar and his friends and shows them proof. All will have been horrible with the movie if that is all the focus the movie had to deliver. Reason being build up to this was not much entertaining and it was hard to see where the movie was going to go from there.

But then we learn that Oscar is a possessive individual with some serious mental issues and then there is another monster who shows up also in Seoul.

The movie was not financially successful and if you do not get to see this movie you are not missing out on anything.
