We didn’t really know too much about The Adjustment Bureau when we sat down to watch it but it was pretty good. Matt Damon’s generally worth watching and it was a really interesting premise; can fate be circumvented?
I liked the mix of present day setting with 1950s sensibilities whenever Damon’s character came up against the agents, whose agency remained unnamed. Emily Blunt was a good foil but I guess she’s also the plot device in the sense that Damon’s attraction to her is what drives the narrative.
I can appreciate why it didn’t become the most successful film of the year or anything like that but as a film I selected when I was in HMV presented with a 5 Blu-Rays for £20 offer, I felt I’d got a good deal and hadn’t inadvertantly wasted one of my options. (Does anyone else feel like they’re making a gamble selection when in that situation?)
It’s clear that I enjoyed this film but don’t have too much to say. Perhaps it’s not one I’d revist especially but I’d happily recommend it to a friend.
