But for the end.,
This review is from: The Adjustment Bureau - Triple Play (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
I was keen to watch the 'inception of 2011' although I remained unconvinced by the premise. As such I came out pleasantly surprised. There was the solid acting that you would expect of Damon, and although I knew little about Blunt she was very good in the film too. There was much else to like about this film; a minor sci-fi aspect for the guys and a love story for the girls combined in a very interesting way.
However, I realised halfway through that there was no-way for this to end well. By which I do not mean that there is no chance for a happily ever after finale, but rather there was no way to end this film in a satisfying way. Either option a happens or option b happens, and surprise surprise, option a happens.
It's a good film that I shall be buying for my collection, but it isn't a great film and that is down to the ending. I spent the next couple of days going over in my head possible alternative endings, and I thought I might have had one, but it doesn't matter because it has the ending it has and that can't be changed now. Worth watching, but don't expect to be surprised.
