What is it about: It’s a sci-fi comedy which revolves around Gloria (Anne Hathaway) who has a dark secret which can’t be revealed and what happens due to that forms the crux of the story directed by Nacho Vigalondo.
Why it’s disappointing: This could stay put for this movie.
What to watch out for: Sometimes you come across a movie which stands out for its fresh approach to entertain. One such case is of Colossal. Its fiction is laudable. It goes beyond the boundaries and presents you something, which only can be one of your wildest dreams. It takes a simple notion and turns that in to something larger than life in no time. The beauty of it is you don’t complaint on the transition because it’s done very smoothly in the most quirky way possible. The comedy was tastefully timed. Writer-Director Nacho Vigalondo did a fantastic job in weaving a screenplay which doesn’t dull out nor reflects from its notion.
The central cast of Colossal was an apt one. Anne Hathaway has a nake to play roles effortlessly. And she did it again with a great wit, which was well received by the audiences. Then it was Jason Sudeikis who was head to head with her and gave a commendable performance.
The cinematography by Eric Cress was seamless and was sharply cut by Ben & Luke. The film had a great scope of VFX, which was rendered really well.
Verdict: Nacho Vigalondo, did an exceptional job in making a comedy thriller which makes its own space and engages you throughout. Don’t miss this one, definitely worth a watch.
