Product Description

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).

Special Features:
  • The Labyrinth of Doors: Interactive map of New York
  • Leaping Through New York
  • Becoming Elise
  • Destined To Be

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
After the loss of his entire family and an 8-year career-climb as the youngest ever Congressman - US Senate hopeful David Norris is poised for the throne of New York State when a drunken barroom moon with his college buddies years earlier conveniently makes the front page of The Post. Preparing his defeat/concession speech by himself in the men's toilet of a plush hotel - David meets a woman who's crashed a wedding on a dare and is hiding out in the cubicles from Security. Earthy, natural and everything his crafted campaign strategy isn't - the flighty and talented British ballet dancer Elise is a breath of fresh air. He is stunned and smitten after only minutes of electrifying conversation and they quickly launch into a mutually uncontrollable snog...

But mystery men who stalk the top of Manhattan buildings wearing 1940's style Trilby hats and immaculate overcoats - have other ideas. They carry with them books that show every-changing grids and expanding street maps like they're controlling people's lives. They are convinced their all-powerful 'chairman' has decreed that these two people's pathways must not converge no matter what the personal cost. So David and Elise need to be subtly 'adjusted'.

Adapted from another ingenious Philip K Dick story (other adaptations include "Blade Runner", "A Scanner Darkly", "Minority Report" and "Total Recall") - the look of the film is cleverly not futuristic. Director George Nolfi uses glossy uptown locations, clean-lined buildings and real world sets so that it doesn't feel like the mind-bending world of "Inception". And the 'God' angle doesn't get in the way of the story but only adds to it. David's struggle with his heart versus politics is brilliantly handled.

4.0 out of 5 stars According to the script 3 July 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, The Adjustment Bureau is an entertaining sci-fi romantic thriller. It examines the lengths that someone will go to in order to determine the course of their life when fate seemingly dictates otherwise.

Matt Damon plays a New York congressman in the process of contesting an election to become a senator. His plans are thrown off course when he meets a beautiful dancer, played by Emily Blunt. However, while he is keen to embrace his new-found happiness, there are others who are not so elated at this state of affairs. The eponymous Bureau is omnipresent and will stop at nothing to ensure that everything stays tickety-boo.

All the little things that annoy you - the spilled drink, the missed phone call, the lost key - may seem to be minor inconveniences but they are all part of a wider picture, keeping you 'on track'. In fact, anything in life that makes your blood pressure soar is actually there to get you to stop, chill out and go through your daily routine in a spirit of blithe contentment. It's all part of the plan so just accept that there's nothing you can do to change it. Or is there?

In a case of reality imitating art, writer-director George Nolfi's screenplay is a text-book example. The running time of 1 hour and 45 minutes contains a taut three acts that keep the narrative moving at a brisk pace, ensuring everything happens when it should. The film never outstays its welcome and by the end, definitely gives you something to think about. Matt Damon has quietly become a dependable leading man, ably assisted here not just by Emily Blunt but also Mad Men's John Slattery and the ever-watchable Terence Stamp providing the conflict.

For those who need to know, the Blu-ray contains alternate Latin American Spanish and Canadian French soundtracks and subtitles. The bonus features are brief but do include deleted scenes and a commentary by George Nolfi.

4.0 out of 5 stars The plan 5 Mar 2011
By Mr. R. W. Graham VINE VOICE
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cause & effect 14 Jun 2011
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.
