Default Colossal - HDD Review

Get ready, Kaiju fans, Bryan says Colossal is a fantastic film that is told perfectly by the amazing Nacho Vigalando.

Sad I missed seeing this in the theater, but glad it's already coming out on video. Thanks for the review.

I wasn't impressed by this movie at all. The trailers made it look like it was going to be more of a comedy kaiju movie, not
Spoiler
an abuse film. I hated how the movie just suddenly turns from being a light hearted comedy about two friends to a drama about abuse. The friend does a complete 180 in personality for no reason without any build up to it, completely throwing the entire movie off. Also, it doesn't make sense how she got to Korea so quickly, nor how she knew exactly where the dude was standing to be able to pick up up and stuff.


I didn't hate the movie, but I hardly consider it to be fantastic or brillaint.

I was thinking of blind buying this one, thanks Bryan for pointing out that my suspicions are correct... Buy it!

When this was was an early announcement it had a terrible Mondo cover art, then they went with a more traditional cover art.

Funny thing is though that there is a Mondo set of this that I thought was way cool.

/agree with all your statements 100%.
An ok movie at best. Acting was great, the story needed work.
