a fun ride, a top-notch sci-fi romance, and despite a few blatant plot devices that are a bit too convenient, the story's inherently human elements keep it going.

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.

a fantastic piece of science fiction told in the flavor of a classic Twilight Zone episode

An original romance story with brilliant central performances from Matt Damon & Emily Blunt makes this one a winner in my books.

Romantic and intellectually stimulating, and like "Inception," it may have you arguing with your date on the ride home.

The Adjustment Bureau does sadly descend into science-fiction nonsense after a bold start, but it's always enjoyable and you never lose sight of what's at stake thanks to excellent character work from Damon and Blunt.

It's rare when a film is able to blend together two different genres so well, especially when they are two genres that you don't normally see together, in this case, science-fiction and romance.

There are plenty of great ideas throughout the film with determinism and the idea of free will all given some interesting twists, though it is sometimes muddled and preachy

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.

I kept expecting Rod Serling to step into the frame, cigarette in hand, setting the stage for the bizarre turn of events about to befall the young pol and the lovestruck ballerina.

...if our current president got elected after admitting to having used cocaine in the past do you really think mooning someone in college would cause someone not to vote for him?

The fact that The Adjustment Bureau asks deeper questions is admirable, and it does so about an onscreen couple actually worth caring about.
August 15, 2011
A bit muddled through the middle third and a Hollywood-like ending make for a good, though not a brilliant film.
June 28, 2011
What's intriguing is that this is essentially a sweet love story coated in a layer of Phillip K Dick.
June 27, 2011
Too bad the film doesn't have anything else to offer besides the chemistry between the photogenic leads, the handsome location shooting and the usual bromides ...

The Adjustment Bureau offers an interesting sci-fi premise that will intrigue in its metaphysical nature, yet that intrigue is not repaid as the move becomes a glossy, effects-driven love story.
