Downsizing Review - 2 Stars

Matt Damon finds a way out of ordinary life in "Downsizing." He discovers a technique that shrinks humans to .0364 normal size. The shrinkage increases wealth, saves resources, and offers a worry-free life. Damon's tiny world leads him to Christoph Waltz, who takes Matt on an adventure, that leads to an odd coupling with socially-conscious dissident Hong Chau. It seems shrinking the world doesn't solve its problems. "Downsizing" starts fascinating, but starts to wind down. I didn't find the journey worth the effort. "Downsizing," 2 stars, rated "R.' Does it deliver what it promises? Satire, on a small scale. Is it entertaining? Starts funny. Is it worth the price of admission? For some.
