Colossal (4½ Stars)
This is the 30th film in the Stuttgart Fantasy Film Festival.
Yesterday I complained about the ridiculous story told by "Radius". The premise of the "Colossal" is just as unbelievable, but I can accept it for one simple reason: it's a comedy. That excuses any illogical storylines.
In Seoul a large monster is terrorising the city every night. Gloria (Anne Hathaway), who lives in a small town in the eastern USA, realises that the monster only appears if she walks across a playground near her house at 8.05 am, her time. The monster mimics her movements, as if she is controlling it.
Ridiculous? Yes. But the film is hilarious. I enjoyed it a lot.
