Movie Review: The Adjustment Bureau

Much like Inception with a love story at its heart...

The Adjustment Bureau is about destiny verses free will. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt star as two star crossed lovers who were supposed to meet in an earlier version of "The plan." Now the plan has changed, and being together will destory everything they've worked for in their lives. It takes one misstep on the part of the "Adjusters" to allow the lovers to meet.

This movie was a pleasant surprise. I loved the chemistry between Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. They start off with a bang, and their relationship only deepens in every scene. I loved how they were so different: an artsy ballerina and a young politician. In this case, opposites attract.

I would have liked more information on "The Adjusters". The movie is intenionally vague on this, leaving the answers up to the audience. The action is face paced, and the script is well written. Overall, a treat to see.
