The Adjustment Bureau Reviews
Trying to crack through the collective's motivation is the main slowing point in the film, and while Damon has been down this road with Jason Bourne, this one seems a little more stilted and harder to get into at points. A good conspiracy film requires the viewer to catch a potential line of logic to follow, right or wrong, but this one has a hard time allowing the viewer to do that, as it flits between the conspiracy and the love story throughout.
When the film pushes towards its end, however, it starts to gather steam and pushes the characters along their lines almost to the point where they crack the Bureau's door open to the big chair, but they opt to keep that particular notion off the table in the end, which is not necessarily bad.
The acting is good, the chemistry between Blunt and Damon is solid and carries the movie, and ultimately it overcomes its sluggish points to be a reasonably entertaining film.
The Adjustment Bureau is a fun, tense fantasy-thriller with great performances and an interesting message.
