October 7, 2011
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.
March 9, 2011
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.
March 7, 2011
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.
March 4, 2011
Fans looking for something a little different will find it here - as well as the first real romance of the year.
March 4, 2011
Cradled in Damon's solidly reliable hands, even a movie as extravagantly silly as this one gains heft and credibility, an impressive accomplishment when you consider that the entire plot revolves around magic notebooks and spellbinding hats.
March 4, 2011
Sometimes, a strong premise makes for a weak movie, which ends up drowning in its own clever conceit.

It's hard to imagine a more spectacularly silly film making it to theaters this year than The Adjustment Bureau.
March 4, 2011
The Adjustment Bureau presents itself as a paean to free will, to overcoming obstacles, to creating your own destiny-provided, that is, that you happen to be a dude.
March 4, 2011
Because the chemistry between Damon and Blunt is so strong, what might have been a jumble of Matrix-style oddments comes across instead as ardent.
March 4, 2011
The Adjustment Bureau has you pondering the angles throughout, and it's a credit to newly minted director George Nolfi that he never lets his foot off the gas pedal.
March 4, 2011
It believes itself to be a suggestive meditation on free will and destiny - not merely a crunchy bag of popcorn. It's neither, being rubbish popcorn too, the sugar not disguising the staleness.
March 4, 2011
The misleading trailers for the supremely goofy "The Adjustment Bureau" promise action-packed sci-fi. What you actually get is a love-struck Matt Damon running for the US Senate as he's stalked by fedora-wearing angels.
March 4, 2011
A smart, stylish thriller that melds science fiction, romance and Hitchcock-ian intrigue with surprising ease.
March 4, 2011
"The Adjustment Bureau" is a smart and good movie that could have been a great one if it had a little more daring.
March 4, 2011
Suspenseful, romantic and wryly funny, "The Adjustment Bureau" is the kind of film that reaffirms one's faith in Hollywood.
March 3, 2011
Easily one of the best American love stories of the past year.
March 3, 2011
You can feel the influence of classic American movies like "North by Northwest" and "The Graduate" here, and while I won't argue that Nolfi matches those examples, his ambition is admirable.
