Buying movies out of the blue based on the cover and synopsis can be a gamble, especially when the price is high and only once have I bought a dud, every other time has been a worthy buy and The Adjustment Bureau is one of them. I thought it was going to be a relatively steady paced thriller that only just involves you, but actually this film really gets the pulse going. Once U.S Politican David Norris steps into his office and finds is co-workers essentially frozen, being scanned and monitored by strange men in suits, you will gasp and lose your mind, thinking what on Earth is going on? From then on mystery and weird events just keep on coming, and first time writer and director George Nolfi keeps you hooked and ready for more. I love the use and ideas of fate and preventing outcomes, the characters are strong willed people so it's fun watching them attempt to break the cycle of fate. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt is immensely likeable leads, and with stellar supporting cast performances The Adjustment Bureau is a no brainer, watch it!
