The Adjustment Bureau – Movie Review

The story of Congressman David Norris (Matt Damon) and ballerina Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt) who’s chance meeting at the Waldorf alters their path; and now they must fight to be together as unknown forces try to keep them apart.

This movie was really good.  I think that it’s kind of one of those movies where people are like “oh how was that movie”

and you go “Oh it was really good”

and they’re like “oh awesome. What was good about it?”

and you go “Oh well… …. … you just have to watch it.”

What I mean by that is, there were a lot of good things in this movie.  The plot, the acting, the idea, the wit, that catch you get in your breath when you’re worried things might not go well… it had so many great elements in it.  Was it a movie that I would be like “omg we have to see this two million times!!!” No.  Honestly. It was a movie where you watch it and then you say “wow.  Good film.” And you move on with your life.

There was a lot in it that led to further thinking.  The ideas of free will, and fate are what the film revolves around; yes there’s character development and plot but the main idea is fate vs free will.  The movie is actually based on the short story, “The Adjustment Team” by Philip K. Dick which I’ve never read but I’m sure is brilliant. And I think that George Nolfi (director and screenplay writer) really did a good job of writing this film for the screen in a way that was unique. 

So here’s a clip to the trailer, in case you live under a rock and don’t know about fricken Matt Damon xD and yea.. Good film.
