E = mc^2 applies universally. Reducing Matt Damon from 5'10" to 5" would require the disappearance of 7 600 000 000 000 000 000 joules of energy, equivalent to 180 ten megaton bombs. They did this to 27 people at a time. 4860 ten megaton bombs ought to have made quite a hole in the laboratory. See more »
A wonderful, thought-provoking movie that is not your usual fare. This stayed with me long after the closing credits thanks, in no small part, to the utterly magnificent Hong Chau.
Charming without being sugary, moving without being over-sentimental, funny without being side splitting or resorting to gross out gags. The film carries several messages that are not exactly subtle but relevant nevertheless.
Wonderful special effects that fit in to the film without distracting from the story or becoming the centre piece and a musical score that also compliments.
Christoph Waltz hits his usual gold standard with ease and Mat Damon plays the bumbling everyman to perfection.
Films like this don't come along very often as movie studios tend to play safe but this is one to watch for certain, even if you end up disagreeing with my review.
