Do we control our destiny, or do unseen forces manipulate us? Matt Damon stars in the thriller The Adjustment Bureau as a man who glimpses the future Fate has planned for him and realizes he wants something else. To get it, he must pursue the only woman he's ever loved across, under and through the streets of modern-day New York.

On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Damon) meets beautiful contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt)-a woman like none he's ever known. But just as he realizes he's falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart.

David learns he is up against the agents of Fate itself-the men of The Adjustment Bureau - who will do everything in their considerable power to prevent David and Elise from being together. In the face of overwhelming odds, he must either let her go and accept a predetermined path... or risk everything to defy Fate and be with her.

The Adjustment Bureau is written for the screen and directed by George Nolfi (writer of Ocean's Twelve, co-writer of The Bourne Ultimatum). It is based on a short story by Philip K. Dick (Total Recall, Minority Report and Blade Runner).

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

An excellent movie from start to finish and to put the idea to bed this is very lightly a sci fi with a bit of romance but it is mostly a thriller in which Matt Damon tries to escape his witten path to be with Emily Blunt and in doing so making the Adjustment Bureau step in and intercept his path. I can understand the comparisons with "Inception" but this has no similarities with the "Bourne Trilogy" whatsoever. I thought the plot was well thought out which gave us an enjoyable story and the acting from Damon, Blunt and the Bureau members was excellent and to the point of their characters...definately one of the best movies for the first third of 2011 so far. Enjoy

 Its been determined that I would write this review

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......
