First-time writer/director George Nolfi struggles to maintain a consistent tone, but The Adjustment Bureau rises on the strong, believable chemistry of its stars.

Accomplished filmmaking that features two highly attractive, talented leads, a healthy dose of sentiment, an intelligent script, and which takes you away for two hours from the quotidian worries and banalities of your regular life.
Nolfi and his colleagues make especially good use of New York, filming everywhere from the Brooklyn waterfront to the lobby of the Museum of Modern Art. It's a fresh look at a familiar city. But Nolfi drops the ball in the home stretch, and that's...
This mind-meld of sci-fi thriller, morality play and passionate romance is worth seeing, mostly for the palpable chemistry between the lead actors.
Damon and Blunt give such terrific performances you might almost forgive the movie's dopey ending.
The on-screen pairing of Matt Damon and Emily Blunt is so winning that you may be willing to overlook the oddly modulating tone of the story that brings them together and then tries to keep them apart.
Reworks A Matter of Life and Death with elements of It's a Wonderful Life and shares techniques and themes with Christopher Nolan's Inception.
The Adjustment Bureau has character, warmth and energy, though it is probably best appreciated if one doesn't examine its fantasy underpinnings too closely.
The Adjustment Bureau is primarily a romantic story and sci-fi thriller secondary, but I enjoyed it equally.
The Adjustment Bureau is that rare thing, an intelligent romance.
The Adjustment Bureau's pitting of fate against freewill and love against success, not only makes for a highly engrossing viewing experience, but also for one imbued with an acute and pensive undertone.
There are plot holes within plot holes within plot holes, and although acres of raw exposition are provided, nothing ever makes proper sense.
The tension between "Dickian paranoia" and "romance candy" begins to pull the threads of the film apart.
A brilliant, thought-provoking blend of romantic thriller and science fiction developed from a simple but very well-conceived idea and with a couple of characters that are so easy to relate to. Even if only loosely based on his story, I guess Philip K. Dick would have been proud.
The Adjustment Bureau is an interesting love-drama that is powered by the chemistry of Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. The script is alternative and may not be fully comprehensive to most audiences. But the film is solid and interesting to see. 4.5/5
Star-crossed lovers are kept apart by an omniscient bureau because their perfect, fulfilling love will dampen all other desires, including their respective ambitions to attain professional success in politics and DANCE.
I don't particularly buy that thesis, nor that the universe wouldn't have better things to do than keep Matt Damon and Emily Blunt apart, but the light chase movie is kinda fun, cutesy, and dangerous but not so dangerous that a happy ending isn't ensured.
A spectacular, stylish, thought-provoking and highly entertaining romantic thriller. I loved this movie. It`s smartly paced, character driven and vastly original that dose not go over the limit or try to be more than what it is. It the perfect blend of sci-fi mystery, thrills and romance. It has your attention from the start all the way to the finish and dose not stop to catch its breath. An instant classic. Director, George Nolfi crafts a superb and dazzling genre piece. A sensational masterwork. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt give such terrific performances, their chemistry is passionate, compelling and romantic. They are a screen couple that actually work.
