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

dips into some heady issues (fate, free will, the relationship between humankind and its creator) while remaining in a fundamental mode of popcorn-munching entertainment.

The movie is worth seeing just for the discussions you'll have afterwards with friends about the illusion of free will and what might happen if you try to bilk your fate.

It takes awhile for the strangeness of this weird story to give way to a more secular rooting interest that eventually makes it very human and hopeful.

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.

With its different genres and better than most movies in the theater at present it probably will not disappoint.

Philip K. Dick's story The Adjustment Team was published in 1954. But the movie The Adjustment Bureau only trades on Dick's name. All else is shoved aside by George Nolfi, who directed and wrote the screenplay.

Science fiction with half a brain, a lot of weird, quick wit, and a surprisingly full heart.
