The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

film review
29 March 2011
  • Excerpt: The Adjustment Bureau directed by George Nolfi, is another short story made into film taken from the rich vein of Phillip K. Dick’s back catalogue. After Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report, one might have expected something equally exciting. In fact, this film almost appears plot-less, struggling to fill the 106 minutes (padded out in fine style by Emily Blunt as a gifted modern dancer). The premise is the classic debate of ‘do we really have free-will?

'The Adjustment Bureau' is a skewed sci-fi romance

Las Vegas Weekly
2 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Cinematic adaptations of sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick’s work tend to fall into two categories: Either they jettison his offbeat pulp-meets-psychedelia sensibilities and use only the rudimentary set-up of a story as the basis for an action movie ( Next , Paycheck , etc.), or they burrow deeply into his heady ideas and come up with something off-kilter and sometimes brilliant ( Blade Runner , A Scanner Darkly ).

Adjustment Bureau, The

Empire Online

  • Conclusion: It’s Inception for romantics, a love story told through the medium of science-fiction — or maybe not; it’s hard to peg this by genre. By keeping the pace quick, the explanation light and the characters strong, Nolfi achieves the near-impossible: a film puzzle you won’t mind leaving unexplained.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
3 March 2011
  • Excerpt: This movie could have been so much better than it was. The concept behind it is highly original, and you can be forgiven for thinking it would be a game changer. Possibly with a different crew or director, it could have lived up to its potential. However, despite the constant action sequences, it never really feels that exciting, and you will inevitably walk away disappointed. If only they 'adjusted' the film to make it more enjoyable.

Nöjesguiden
23 November 2012
  • Excerpt: ”Bourne möter Inception” fläskar reklamrösten på och inger falska förhoppningar. För det här är varken rått och smutsigt som Bourne-serien eller storslaget och helhjärtat som Inception.

22 August 2011
  • Summary: Ieders leven verloopt volgens een vooropgesteld plan. Wordt daarvan afgeweken, dan zorgt het mysterieuze Adjustment Bureau ervoor dat de zaken weer terug op het plan gebracht worden. Politicus David veroorzaakt een van dergelijke afwijkingen, door verliefd te worden op Elise. Het Bureau grijpt in, maar dat blijkt een stuk lastiger dan gedacht. The Adjustment Bureau bevat zowel romantiek als thriller/actie.

The Adjustment Bureau

Gamereactor
3 August 2011
  • Conclusion: Filmen: Matt Damon i ett Inception-luktande science fictiondrama kan väl inte annat än bli en braksuccé? The Adjustment Bureau grundar sig på en novell av kultförfattaren Philip K. Dick vars verk blivit storfilmer som exempelvis Minority Report och Total Recall men framförallt Blade Runner. Det är inget lätt uppdrag regi-debuterande manusförfattaren till The Bourne Ultimatum och Oceans Twelve gett sig in på.
