Excerpt: The Adjustment Bureau was one of those movies that I went into with very little expectations and came out really enjoying. The film is about a young politician who is on the rise who meets a woman who he instantly realizes is the perfect match for him... only to have mysterious men in suits and hats intervene and tell him they cannot be together because he is destined for greater things set in motion by "The Chairman".
Excerpt: One thing that makes The Adjustment Bureau so cool, is the idea that life as we know it is actually designed for the things you do and the people you meet or at least for this movie, the one your supposed to not meet. So many questions, so many ways to change it. Matt Damon tones down his usual fast paced self for this nice little gem of a movie that begs the question, are our lives predestined?
Summary: Look past the film's Dionysian views of love and fate, and you will see a rather creative little love-story about two likable and charismatic people whose love cannot even be broken by the angels themselves. Stupid, but often creative and novel.
Summary: I thought this movie was ok. I thought it had a good idea, but they could have done more with it. In the end I expected a little more, a twist or something, but I didn't really get one. It was just pretty typical. A happy ending you couldn't help but see coming. It was still worth the watch though. It's basically about the people that make sure no one wanders off their pre-determined "plan".
Summary: I don't understand how to get the Vudu rentals. However, in regards to Wal Mart and the movie, The Adjustment Bureau, my purchase was good. I love and enjoy my movie. I got my movie in the mail quickly from Wal Mart too. So, other than needing help on how to do the thing on the cover for 2 free rentals, I'm satisfied with the purchase.
Excerpt: A senatorial candidate meets the woman of his dreams but an enigmatic organisation of men in black keep interfering in his life to keep them apart. The movie poster for this film contained an earnest looking Matt Damon in full Bourne pose running through a surreal cityscape, a clearly premeditated attempt to dupe the male population into thinking that The Adjustment Bureau was going to be another Inception style sci-fi thriller.
Excerpt: We are all familiar with the common phrase, ‘Everything happens for a reason’. How anyone feels about that statement is always a topic for lively debate. Are we not masters of our own fate? Or is there a greater force at work, behind the scenes, that affects the outcome of our lives? Entire religions have been founded on this simple premise. Regardless of how you feel about this eternal debate, ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ [TAB] offers its own take on this subject.
Summary: I was glad they didn't venture too far into the romance department - just enough to make it believable but not much more. I liked the sci-fi element - the whole fate vs. free will thing has been done before, but it's still always a good story to fall back on. Above average, though not exceptional, sci-fi film.
