The cast is the only thing that holds Father Figures together, but it doesn't do it for long. It's just a bad movie.
It was almost a great movie, but lost its way somewhere toward the end. Del Toro still shows off his creativity in The Shape of Water, just a little more turned down from what I'm used to. Hawkins stands out in a well cast film.
Wonderful actors create great characters here. The story is OK, nothing special. It's the actors that make this work so well.
Like a writer who can't find an ending to a book but keeps writing anyway, Downsizing doesn't figure out where it's going and just stops at some point. The characters are likable and the idea is wasted.
In the beginning scroll of the next movie they could have told me three things that happened in The Last Jedi and I could have skipped the 2 1/2 hours that was Star Wars VII and been just fine. There were zero surprises. And it was so..... long.
