    I sense this movie has received mostly negative reviews, but that's because many people couldn't grasp the rich, colorful and well-thought metaphors this movie provides.

    spoiler

    Overall I believe this movie is getting reviews that are too harsh because people have jumped faster than they should have into criticizing before rewatching the times, or giving the amount of thought, that this movie requires.

    Sometimes what looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, smells like a duck...is not actually a duck. This should have been a great movie, with high caliber directing (Payne), first rate acting (Damon, Waltz, Chau), and a fantastic concept/message (downsizing). So what went wrong?

    I feel like this may have been an over-commitment to the core concept of downsizing as a story, and a resulting forced narrative with no real tracks beneath it. Payne has done well with loose, meandering scripts before, but Downsizing was loose to the point of being shapeless.

    Utterly disappointing if not for the fact that this was still a perfectly entertaining film. I don't regret those two hours even given the blatantly shoddy aspects of the piece.

    The problem with the movie is its length . 2 hrs and 15 mins really ? what were they thinking?
    Also after the interesting first half, it goes all downhill.. Half baked story and screenplay.... A letdown for a Alexander payne movie!
    Still acting by Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig makes this a bearable watch! I would give this a 6 or 6.5 max, out of 10.
