“Downsizing” is the concept of minimizing humans to miniature size and by doing so, eradicating the world problems of overpopulation and the catastrophic effects this has on the environment through over-consumption and waste.

As Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey Safranek (Krisitin Wiig) finally agree to downsize to reduce their financial troubles; only for Audrey to chicken out and for Damon be left all small and on his own to build his life again in a new downsized world.

Taking on such a concept for a film would have its predicted flaws and plot pot-holes. There something quite 80s-90s blockbuster about it, especially as the pace seems to slow down mid-film. It's an overall easy to watch film, with an intriguing enough concept; but at points I found it to be overbearingly cutesy.
