first of all i wont try to beat the first review written as he has pretty much hit the nail on the head with story style and good performances..
i would like to say the pictures sharp with some good colouring and there are some fantasic locations where the film has been shot...
all in all a solid movie from matt but would recommend higher before you buy as you may think this a one time watch only as i did..

I just gotta set the records straight. On front cover of the movie The Adjustment Bureau is described by Total Film as "Bourne Meets Inception" the only thing this movie has in common with that excellent spy trilogy is Matt Damon, but I can go along with Inception, but not on the same scale as 2010's summer mind melter.
Infact The Adjustment Bureau is a mix of all types of movies, that deals with a fixed destiny as unseen forces steer Matt Damon's fate, until he meets the beaultiful Emily Blunt and Damon's fate stumbles of the pre-planned path. The chemstry between Damon and Blunt is brilliant as the fall for each other before the mysteriouse men in hats start to conspire to split the two lovers apart at any cost so Damon can get back on the set path of his all important destiny.
The film surprised me because this is a perfect date movie, it's got something in for everybody. The sci-fi elements work well, and the final half hour has a great chase through the streets and between the doorways of New York, but the real backbone to the film is the love story that never is sloppy but every moment between Damon and Blunt rings true.
The film is very well directed and I'm sure if you wanted to be picky you could pick plot holes in the story big enough to drive a truck through, but on the whole this is a very original film that everybody should enjoy.
See if you like......

Absolutely loved this film. Very much similar to Inception but with added romance. Damon just looks and smiles like a Senator so this was a role made for him, whilst Blunt really blew me away in this with her impactful acting and deep character. I wanted to give this a 5 but the only thing which brought it down was a bit of the hammy acting by John Slattery (which was disappointing considering his strength in Mad Men). Another strong performance comes from Anthony Mackie.
If you like a film which makes you think a bit, then this is a must watch

Really enjoyed this Romantic Sci Fi Chase Movie.
The story is very simple, as in Matt Damon's character has his life mapped out and has a Pre Determined role in the world, and to keep things running he has a secret group of people to make sure it stays that way. And then he meets a girl....
And from there the mind games and chases begin.
The film is Inventive, Intelligent but also lots of Fun.
The central relationship between Mat Damon and Emily Blunt is very Natural & Convincing and that's what pulls you into the movie.
Both Actors are on Fine form. The effects are very slick but not over the top, and the design of the movie is very Cool.
Director George Nolfi may be one to watch out for.
Highly recommended

not a bad film and i wanted to really like it but feel it had more to give.yes damon and blunt looked like they clicked and put in a steady shift, it does drift from serious to lightheartedness rather disjointedly and ending was a bit to obvious, fans of damon will prob enjoy.

Matt Damon is David Norris - a rising New York star politician whose impulses have at times gotten him into trouble in the press. On the eve of election to high office, with revelations of old antics sinking his hopes of reaching high office a chance hotel bathroom encounter with Elise (Emily Blunt) inspires David to take his defeat and move on.

But despite the attraction between them, other forces have plans for David which Elise is not a part of. And they will make sure that David's life goes according to their plan for him, not that of David's free will. The semi-Hitchcockian chase that results incorporates comedy, caper, thriller, conspiracy film and also sci-fi that entertains even as it struggles to decide what sort of film it wants to really be. What does keep it afloat is that Blunt and Damon have between them genuine onscreen chemistry from the moment that they meet. And in a film with a love story anchoring all the crazy things going on elsewhere that's what you have to have! Blunt and Damon have it going on and that keeps the film going even if it and writer/director George Nolfi seem less able (or unwilling perhaps) to delve into the larger implications of his story.

What remains though is a solid, if at times also silly - in a pleasing way I though - romantic caper thriller with some sci-fi overtones that more than works more than it doesnt.
