Colossal

Colossal (2017)

Genre: Action, Comedy, Drama

I was unsure about this movie and by the whim of my sister I gave this film a shot. And boy, I am glad I did ๐Ÿ˜€ . Not only does it have a great cast such as Anne Hathaway and Dan Stevens it has an amazingly unique narrative. It is a monster flick but the path it leads you on makes it far more unique than any other so far ๐Ÿ˜€ . Sure, itโ€™s not as action packed like other monster flicks but that work in its favour. I loved the fact this easy following pace just kept tricking me through out ๐Ÿ˜€ . For example, I thought it would end differently or a character who I thought was good ended up being really bad. They (the bad one) were my favourite character in this because it was such a switch (so unlikable but great for story ๐Ÿ˜› ) but I canโ€™t say who as that would spoil the film ๐Ÿ˜› . Anne Hathaway (Gloria) was fabulous in this especially when she became horrified part way through the film after she is โ€œbeat upโ€ in the park. The movement were so genuine that I felt her pain and felt for her character. The humour is strong in this and the comedy of the pub friends in great at the start ๐Ÿ™‚ . My favourite comedy moments were the โ€œI am the monsterโ€ dance section and the cafรฉ talk between Gloria and Oscar (Jason Sudeikis). I loved that the story got darker and the twist (remembering when she was a kid) was fitting and cool. Also that end section to finish the tale was done so cool that it becomes unique ๐Ÿ™‚ . I really loved this film and was so glad that it was better than I expected it to be ๐Ÿ˜€ . I would recommend this movie but donโ€™t go expecting some great dramatic monster flick. Accept that it is slow, let its steady pace to lead you and you will be pleasantly surprised ๐Ÿ™‚ . Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
