About this Film


ODEON says...
As a solution to over-population, scientists have discovered a way to shrink people to five inches tall. Intrigued by the possibilities, Paul and Audrey decide to give ‘Downsizing’ a try.

As well as being hugely beneficial for the environment, money goes much further in a downsized world, and the promise of a better life is too much to pass up. As Paul and Audrey move in to their new community, little do they know that life-changing adventures are in store for them.

Experience ‘Downsizing’ for yourself in this high-concept comedy from the director of ‘The Descendants’, starring Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig and Christoph Waltz.

Trailer promises so much but the film fails to deliver in every way. Disappointment awaits if you are looking to be entertained. If you want to be left feeling empty and unsatisfied, crack on.

One of the worst

Reviewer: RonnieDate: 2018-01-28

This is one of the worst films I have ever seen, the trailers do not represent the movie. It starts well, then goes all over the place, leading to nowhere. The actual downsizing (point of movie) takes a back seat. Don't waste your time!!!!!!!

Interesting stor

Not what you might expect. 1st half better than second half. Quite a good concept and well acted throughout. Turns out to be a bit of a love story.

Yawn, yawn, so boring worst film I have seen in the past year, a waste of my time and money. I was expecting something, anything especially as I like Matt Damon.
