    The Adjustment Bureau - There's something strangely familiar about this movie! Its main trope just feels a little clunky and worn out. (B-)

    A waste of the City of Angels meets Dark City premise due to shoddy writing that is not just inconsistent in its internal logic but lacks any kind of coherent explanation for its existence. Beyond that it's just a bunch of silly posturing and lots of running around in hats.

    I saw it when it first came out and whilst I remember vaguely enjoying it as entertainment I couldn't remember anything about it, and that should have been enough of…

    Clearly at the bottom of the Philip K. Dick based films, but an enjoyable romantic story to watch with the wife.

    The Adjustment Bureau takes itself way too serious for this kind of bananas premise, but exactly that is what makes this movie so revealing. Movies play with words like fate or destiny all the time, but isn't it kind of ridiculous to believe in this kind of higher force to right and drive your life? Aren't there any other themes romantic movies could thrive off of than destiny bringing together two people?

    The Adjustment Bureau is not very good. It's ridiculous and clumsy, but it is not horrible and sometimes unintentionally funny.

    The Adjustment Bureau is such a cool sci-fi movie. The only downside of this movie is that it is a romance. I know that this movie is a romantic sci-fi, but it would have been a much cooler movie if it focused more on the science. This movie has some cool ideas that I've never thought of it before. I really like the chemistry between Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. I would say The Adjustment Bureau is a sci-fi/romantic movie…

    Another film adapted from the great American science fiction novelist Philip K. Dick whose novels have been the inspiration for such films as Blade Runner (1982), Total Recall (1990), Screamers (1995), Minority Report (2002), Paycheck (2003), A Scanner Darkly (2006), and Next (2007). This time the movie The Adjustment Bureau (2011) is based on a Philip Dick short story called The Adjustment Team.

    The movie is an alternate reality sci-fi film that is accessible to everyone even if you’re not…

    The Adjustment Bureau contains a clever script about "fate," along with a strong connection between Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, while it tries way too hard to become the next "Inception."

    Grade: B-

    Liiga kinni esoteerias (saatus, suur plaan, ettemääratus jne), et sügavamalt korda minna, kuid antud ideede konkreetne konstruktsioon siin filmis on tegelikult päris kihvt. Lihtsalt, see on ka päris tobe. Aga siiski ka päris äge oma viltkaabude ja ülikondadega (John Slattery otse Mad Men'i set'ilt).

    Freewill is a gift that you'll never know how to use until you fight for it.

    The Adjustment Bureau has a really great concept which is ultimately brought down by a very underwhelming execution of it.

    Matt Damon and Emily Blunt are fine in their lead roles but with such an interesting idea, this had the potential to be so much better. When the mysterious aspects of the bureau were explored, the film started to feel like it was heading in the right direction, but we just didn't get enough of it.

    First rewatch. Knowing what is going to happen (in broad terms, not specifics as it has been a while since I watched this last time), detracts slightly, but ultimately it is still a good film and Damon & Blunt have good on-screen chemistry.

    It's a fresh take on familiar themes and ideas. The chemistry between Damon and Blunt, the other great performances, visual spectacle and great action sequences make this a fun film with an efficient amount of depth. The only things hurting this film are questions that are left unanswered, possible gaps in the logic and a debatably anticlimactic ending, all of which could just be adding to the film's theme.
