Paranoia never looked so good.

Uma narrativa intrigante, tensa e romântica que mantém o espectador interessado durante a maior parte da projeção.

If you can buy into the sci-fi angle, this rom-action is smart and brisk enough to stand above similarly-themed films--helped tremendously by the chemistry of its stars.

... more hearts-aflutter romance than nuts-and-bolts sci-fi.

Philip K. Dick doesn't always work on screen
April 25, 2011
A romantic thriller that manages a rather remarkable feat: sending us on a headlong pursuit of life's meaning, even as the banal everydayness of real life closes in on one side and the anything-goes magic of science fiction closes in on the other.

Focus on love story distracts from film's concept
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 22, 2011
The film's chief interest isn't plumbing philosophical questions of fate, providence and autonomy but, instead, wallowing in skimpy fairy-tale romanticism.

A largely entertaining and compelling paranoid thriller only let down by its final scenes.

It's impossible to avoid comparing this film to both Inception and The Truman Show, as it delves into the issue of free will from a fantastical perspective. But this is a lighter movie, focussing on romance rather than weighty themes.

After decades of near misses, someone's finally made a great movie out of a Philip K. Dick story -- by throwing out almost everything and spinning the concept in an entirely new direction.

As artistic endeavour this gives free will a bad name.

You've seen this sort of thing before, all the way back to It's A Wonderful Life, even if its fake-serious energy and matte finish will temporarily and entertainingly trick you into thinking otherwise.

While it sets itself up marvelously, The Adjustment Bureau in the end simply fails on the follow-through and while the end result is a near-miss, it is nevertheless a miss.

April 4, 2011
This mind-meld of sci-fi thriller, morality play and passionate romance is worth seeing, mostly for the palpable chemistry between the lead actors.

...artfully tells a story that unfolds elegantly and understands the importance and power of finding that special someone in your life.
March 25, 2011
Philip K. Dick's original science-fiction story gets an adjustment in 'The Adjustment Bureau,' a fantasy, rather than a sci-fi piece, about freedom of choice and to what lengths we will go to pursue love.

All of the shine is pointless with a weak story. By the time we reached the second act, 'The Adjustment Bureau' became 'Sex and the City' meets The 'Butterfly Effect.'

I'm a sucker for movies about fate, destiny, and heavenly intervention-going all the way back to On Borrowed Time and Here Comes Mr. Jordan up through Ghost Town with...

Damon and Blunt are great--it's just a shame they don't have a stronger adversary for their love.
