Your Fate Has Been Adjusted.
Do we control our destiny, or do unseen forces manipulate us?
Matt Damon stars 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, Hereafter) meets beautiful contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt, The Young Victoria)—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.
Written for the screen and directed by George Nolfi (writer of Ocean's Twelve, co-writer of The Bourne Ultimatum), this heart-racing thriller is based on a short story by Philip K. Dick (Total Recall, Minority Report and Blade Runner).

Fresh: A largely entertaining and compelling paranoid thriller only let down by its final scenes.-Simon Jones, Empire Magazine Australasia, April 13, 2011
Fresh: This mind-meld of sci-fi thriller, morality play and passionate romance is worth seeing, mostly for the palpable chemistry between the lead actors.-Claudia Puig, USA Today, April 04, 2011
Fresh: Damon and Blunt give such terrific performances you might almost forgive the movie's dopey ending.-Rafer Guzman, Newsday, March 19, 2011
Fresh: Although The Adjustment Bureau ultimately doesn't explore its intriguing science-fiction/thriller scenario to the extent of similarly themed films ... it operates far more successfully as a romance.-Thomas Caldwell, Cinema Autopsy, March 13, 2011
This is one of those movies that hook you right from the beginning. The chemistry between the leads is palpable. I love movies that keep me guessing and this one delivered.

Actually I give this one a three and a half, but this site won't let me oddly enough. At times I found myself struggle to stay with the story. Damon and Blunt were a magical combination which is probably the one thing which kept me awake. You never really know who or what the Adjustment Bureau is and or why they are period. That is an unsatisfying fact. The film is just past "OK" but not quite to "I Like It A Lot".
