Robert’s Reviews: ‘Downsizing’

Hello clever people! Welcome to my review for the most disappointing film of the entire year, “Downsizing”. This film follows the story of Paul Safranick (Matt Damon), a man who must deal with repercussions of undergoing the irreversible medical procedure known as downsizing, where you shrink to a height of five inches. Along the way, he attempts to find meaning and purpose in a life that starts to become monotonous, and makes a friend that changes his life forever. Click the video below to watch my review!

    It would seem that after 100+ years of movie making, film makers wouldn’t get it so wrong, but apparently that’s what happened in this one. I’ll pass once it comes on DISH. Thanks, Robert.

    Matt Damon has been in four stinkers in a row since “The Martian.” I didn’t think “Jason Bourne” was unwatchable, but it added nothing to that franchise that we hadn’t seen before. At best, a retread.

    Even “Suburbicon”—written by the amazing Coen brothers and directed by George Clooney (who did a solid job with Charlie Kaufman’s “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind”—was apparently horrible.

  3. Maybe they should have got Jesse Plemons to play Matt Damon. He’s on a hot streak.
