What makes Colossal an especially interesting movie is that there are no rom-com facets at all. In a more typical movie, Gloria and Oscar would connect, bond over the kaiju, fight and then make up. In this actual movie, Oscar is even more horrible than Gloria - an angry, jealous, entitled drunk. I kept having to change how I felt about what was going on: some parts were funny, some pathetic, some infuriating, and I enjoyed the fact that things did not play out as I expected them. There's not a lot of kaiju action in Colossal - in this movie, the monsters are much closer to home.
