    Good concept, but poor execution. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt's chemistry was spot on though.

    The execution is not quite as stellar as the concept, but that concept is so great that it lifts the entire movie. Solid acting performances by most participants don't hurt any, either.

    Edit: Good review, Jacob. Way to just nail everything on the head. Deep thoughts. Sigh. To be re-reviewed if/when I watch this again.

    The high-concept plot of The Adjustment Bureau isn't the most alluring thing in the film. It's an interesting science fiction thriller that's actually dominated by a romance that convinces from its very inception. Starring Matt Damon, (for once not breaking other people's limbs and playing the hardman) this sees a chance encounter with a beautiful woman and a passionate kiss that will change his life forever. If you believe in falling in love instantly then you will invest in this…

    A good concept, completely let down by the flat ending and schmaltzy final message.

    Está bien la película, pero es demasiado... previsible, lineal... no, no es esa la palabra. Cobarde quizás. No sé. La cosa es que al final queda la sensación de que el director ha jugado sobre seguro, no ha querido en ningún momento tirarse a la piscina de cabeza o hacer algo rompedor, sino coger un esquema de probada valía y seguir el manual para hacer algo correcto y accesible, pero sin pulsar los botones que pudiesen llevarle más allá, aunque…

    "All I have are the choices I make, and I choose her, come what may."

    Ever wrestled with the idea that some aspects of your life were just a little more than fate? How much of our lives do we actually control? The age-old debate of free will vs. predestination is brought to the screen in a unique way bolstered by the exceptional performances of Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.
    For me, this movie was refreshingly thought-provoking, and a must-see…

    "Adjustment Bureau" is about some odd figures in suits and hats who we discover control the entire destiny of mankind. They influence events in small subtle ways all the time in order to ensure that everything fits a (divine) plan. We are even told towards the beginning that they are known to some as 'angels'. These 'angels' have the power allowing them to move around the city quickly. The film is set in New York and the "angels" can open…
