Brilliant film and poignant with regards to current events in the world.
It’s interesting when people say if you do not enjoy a movie like this, you must not be intelligent. No, maybe they are intelligent, but they just don’t enjoy the same style of movie as you? Be careful you don’t end up sounding like Donald Trump - if you have to constantly let people know how smart you are, you probably are not as smart as you think you are.
I fell asleep early on. What a waste of time
Upsize a sequel
Only this first part of the movie is about downsizing and that it goes downhilling
awesome very good, matt damon is a genius!
With Matt damon thought it would be good. Was boring. Stupid.
Not very good
If you like to think, this movie is for you
Stupid Either make it a comedy or drama! Left story lines dangling...
This movie is good if you don't mind watching something that is thought provoking. It is entertaining and interesting in it's own right (not at all like "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" like some reviews stated!). The nudity was not really random as some reviewers said, but it was part of the "science" aspect of a "science fiction" movie. The nudity was somewhat surprising due to the fact that 98% of the naked bodies were male, and in entirely non-sexual situations--that was somewhat commical. (I think the writer was tired of female bodies being exploited in movies so often.)
This movie is only for smart people
I dunno. What was that? A Greenpeace movie. Interesting. The breakout star was Hong Chau. She was delightful and refreshing. Well worth seeing.
F word? Fantastic fabulous and Fun! Seen it twice
Except for using the "F" word too frequently, I liked the movie. Yes...it does have a plot! Also the humour is subtle, not in your face like slap-stick comedy which I don't find funny at all!
Plot remarkable, acting transcending, visual effects spectacular!
To the guy below who thinks he's a genius and is derogatory towards those who thought the movie was dreck, the spelling is "peons." By the way, the movie was dreck.
The Vietnamese woman? Wow glad we are back in 1817. Anyways movie was great
Good acting, interesting and timely story, good message, directing and movie flows well. Humorous and entertaining while it makes you think.
Good movie, the Vietnamese woman made the movie, she was hilarious. Horrible ending though.
Boring! The acting is horrible - even Matt Damon. The Vietnamese woman was the best. Would have left, but kept thinking something is going to happen to make this worth watching. Another Hollywood actor using the big screen to make his statement. This time on the overpopulation of the earth and environmental waste. We know that. Shrinking isn't going to happen Matt. Zero stars from me.
No stars. Disliked the details like shaving and previous life. Boring
Simpletons will not understand the brilliance
A very well done clever movie about environmental and basic human/social issues. Very original in scope. I felt I was watching an excellent Twilight zone film.
One of the greatest movies ever made, its too smart for the pions
I ever leave reviews, but I feel I need to warn you how bad this movie is. It was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen.
Worst movie I've seen awhile - not funny, long, boring and pointless script. Don't waste your money - so many better movies out there.
Certainly not a comedy, the trailer was misleading.
Comedy with a conscience.
I have seen a lot of movies, by far the worst movie ever.
Well, everyone has taken this movie tooooo seriously, it has entertainment value. A very different storyline. What do you expect when someone is shrunk to 5"! And it did have humour. We enjoyed this movie. NO ONE DIED
Did not like this movie at all. I thought it would be a comedy not a lecture on the doomed fate of mankind. It was very boring.
Not a good movie
This movie was good. People don't like to think that's what I have to say.
Not funny, not dramatic, no adventure, just a waist of time and money. I like Matt Damon.. but he played this as bland as possible.. Hong Chau was terrific. Got to the end and my family and I looked at each other and said wow.. just wow.. and not in a good way. Save your money.
I haven't seen this movie yet, but I did not think it was supposed to be a Comedy. the Trailers don't make it look like a Comedy, so not sure why everyone was so disappointed after seeing it ?? a lot of people were expecting it to be funny for some reason....but , it just looks like a unique storyline to me , with a neat concept.
I'm done with Matt Damon. He made some good movies in the past (Dogma and Good Will Hunting specifically), but his last few have been wastes of money that could be used more profitably as toilet paper. Hong Chau was surprising and excellent. The comedic actors (Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig, and Neil Patrick Harris, etc.) were added to give the movie legitimacy that it never deserved. There were only two good things about this mess, Hong Chau and the fjords of Norway (if it was actually Norway). Instead of seeing this movie, go to the dentist. It will be more enjoyable and do you some good.
Looooooong, not funny, not what i was expecting, and I left 90mins in. the only character i liked was Hong Chau.
I would actual like to rate this -1000000000000000000000000000 stars WORST movie I’ve ever seen!! Save your money. If you are a liberal you might like this movie it’s so far left bunch of nut heads save the world hug a tree but done on the most boring way possible.
