Fun concept... Lacking execution
23 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw a sneak preview of Colossal. I really liked the concept of the movie, it was original and fun. Sadly there was something lacking in the execution. It just didn't feel put together correctly, like there was something in the story telling that was missing that would have made it more compelling.

Anne Hathaway was cast a bit too far out of character. She just wasn't quite believable as the wastrel party girl. She couldn't quite pull off acting drunk. Her character's story is a classic redemption tale, with the monster twist.

Jason Sudeikis plays her foil in the story. His character arc is very poorly handled. There wasn't enough setup, almost like a few scenes in the middle were cut. That being said, he played it pretty well, except it was hard to tell when he was supposed to be drunk.

As I've mentioned both main characters being drunk, there is a lot of drinking in this movie. The central movie set being the bar run by Oscar (Jason Sudeikis) where Gloria (Anne Hathaway) starts working. This is after returning to a home her parent's left vacant, and after being kicked out by her boyfriend for being a party girl who can't get her life together. This is where I would caution that this isn't really an appropriate movie for children, despite the silly almost cartoon premise.

The bottom line of a movie review is the recommendation of whether or not to see it. If you are bothered by plot holes and trite characters, you probably want to steer clear. If you like silly popcorn movies, you might want to give it a shot. I don't feel like I wasted 2 hours on the movie, but I probably wouldn't watch it again.
