Do we control our destiny, or do unseen forces manipulate us? Matt Damon stars in the thriller The Adjustment Bureau as a man who glimpses the future Fate has planned for him and realizes he wants something else. To get it, he must pursue the only woman he’s ever loved across, under and through the streets of modern-day New York.

On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Damon) meets beautiful contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt)—a woman like none he’s ever known. But just as he realizes he’s falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart.

David learns he is up against the agents of Fate itself—the men of The Adjustment Bureau—who will do everything in their considerable power to prevent David and Elise from being together. In the face of overwhelming odds, he must either let her go and accept a predetermined path…or risk everything to defy Fate and be with her.

The Adjustment Bureau is written for the screen and directed by George Nolfi (writer of Ocean’s Twelve, co-writer of The Bourne Ultimatum). It is based on a short story by Philip K. Dick (Total Recall, Minority Report and Blade Runner).

  • The Labyrinth of Doors: Interactive map of New York
  • Leaping Through New York
  • Becoming Elise

Format: DVD
This was not at all what I expected, i.e. a thriller about some group that was exerting control to some esoteric purpose. Instead, it is a kind of metaphysical thriller, where a talented young politician doesn't fit with the plan and fights very hard to go his own way. It is a nice twist on a totalitarianism that is adaptable and not all that bad in intent, however messy the details are.

On the positive side, the chemistry between Damon (an absolutely first rate actor) and Emily Blunt is amazingly believable. They are riveting on screen, genuinely moving, at least to me. This is one level of the film, a kind of love story against all odds - how can they make it work when everything conspires against them.

So, without playing the spoiler, Damon discovers that he is being "managed", indeed that he has a destiny. He is a remarkable young politician, somewhat rebellious but committed to changing things. He has always felt a certain emptiness, an emotional hole within himself that he is attempting to fill with the "people's love" as he climbs the political ladder. Then, he has a chance meeting with an extraordinary young woman, and enters an adventure that is as indescribable as it is complex and ultimately impossible to limn. He feels fulfilled, which violates the logic of his destiny. Any means will be employed to correct things.

This is a fun film experience, but I don't want to purchase the film, because once you figure out what is happening, you get and won't want to re-experience it. Recommended.

I have never written a review before but could not believe that someone gave this 3 stars and said there is no story line to it. This is one of the best story lines I have seen in a long while. Love, excitment, science fiction, drama, suspense, the adjectives are too numerous to write here. Don't listen to anyone who says this is not a good film or has no story line, they are quite frankly wrong.....

Format: DVD
Matt Damon (Green Zone) plays Congressman David Norris, a young & rapidly-rising star in the world of politics. His life is pretty mono-directional until he meets Elise (Emily Blunt - The Devil Wears Prada), a girl who he falls completely in love with from the moment he sees her - the feeling is mutual & the two chalk it up to destiny. But when the unpredictable Elise pushes David off-schedule and 'off-plan', David stumbles upon the people behind the scenes responsible for his meteoric rise - The Adjustment Bureau.

The Adjustment Bureau control everyone's fate & destiny - attired like the fast-talkers from the 1930s; the trilby, stetson and pork-pie wearing guardians watch over the population ensuring they all follow 'the plan' but David's desire for Elise is not part of that plan and the folks at the bureau are none-too-happy about their romance and will alter David & Elise's reality to stop them being together. Will David's determination overcome fate, even if someone else is controlling that fate?

The Adjustment Bureau is a thought-provoking science-fiction romance movie. I appreciate that's a hell of a strap line but it's an age-old but great concept that the film wrestles with; are our fates predetermined or do we have the ability to change our destiny? The Bureau are the corporate take on Angels ("We've been called that before") with the foot soldiers doing the bidding of "The Chairman" (God).

Matt Damon plays a convincing New-Yorker who won't take 'no' for an answer whilst Emily Blunt provides an endearing performance of Elise, a ballet-focussed free-spirit.

Format: Blu-ray
A slow but very well acted, well made, intriguing and original romantic sci fi thriller, and how often do you see one of those? It's based on a short story by Phillip K. Dick, and while it's not in the same league as Blade Runner, it's at least as enjoyable as Total Recall and Minority Report. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt are on excellent form as the lovers who weren't supposed to meet and Terrance Stamp is very sinister as part of the mysterious adjustment bureau who make sure that everything happens according to plan. You're never quite sure who the mysterious bureau are and that's part of this movie's appeal. They describe themselves as more than human and possess powers and can use any door to transport themselves anywhere they wish and claim to have been watching over the human race since time began and they report to a mysterious chairman who decides fate all according to a grand plan.
The slow pace may put off some, but stick with it and you'll be rewarded with a very enjoyable film.

Format: DVD
This movie deals with a lot of philosophical questions that mankind have been asking for centuries. Including the idea of fate, chance and a higher power. Could there be a grand puppet master sitting somewhere with a big book mapping out everyone's lives? Well according to this movie, there is. I think what makes this a successful sci-fi romance is that the plot largely revolves around the idea of lovers fighting fate and striving to be together no matter what. It is a story of true love and never giving up, risking everything to be with the one you love.

As this film stars Matt Damon, I was expecting something very Bourne-esque, but boy was I wrong as there is an element of romance to it too. I was quite suprised to find that science-fiction also played a major role in this movie. Normally sci-fi and romance don't gel too well together, I mean, it has been done, but not always successfully. 'The Adjustment Bureau' bonds the two differing genres perfectly, so much so that you probably won't even be aware that you're watching a sci-fi movie. Perhaps we could call this genre sci-fi for girls.

I didn't that Matt Damon would be very good at playing a romantic figure because when I look at him, quite frankly I just think guns and action. Again, I was wrong. Damon and Blunt seem to have quite a good on-screen chemistry going on which is essential to any romantic movie.

I highly recommend this movie because it is not your usual sappy romance; it is highly interesting, a fast-paced movie with lots of action, which for once actually enhances the romance instead of detracting from it.
