Format: DVD
The Adjustment Bureau is a fun, stylish film that manages to blend a sci-fi premise with a Mad Men-like aesthetic (even including John Slattery of the popular TV series in its cast). Based on a short story by Philip K Dick, The Adjustment Bureau is miles away from other movies based on the author's work. Unlike Blade Runner, Total Recall, and Minority Report (based on Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", "We'll Remember It for You Wholesale", and "The Minority Report" respectively), this film focuses primarily on the relationship between the two main characters rather than action sequences and the fantastic new world in which those sequences take place. In fact, The Adjustment Bureau takes place in a contemporary setting, with only a few sartorial details (like an unusual number of black fedoras) to indicate that things aren't entirely what they seem.

The story is of a young, up-and-coming (or flash in the pan?) politician named David and played by Matt Damon, who meets a young dancer named Elise and played by Emily Blunt. They are attracted to each other, almost despite themselves, but, as they initiate a relationship, mysterious forces in the guise of suited, hat-wearing men in black conspire to keep them apart.

I haven't read the source material, titled "The Adjustment Team", so I can't say if the focus on character rather than premise is present in the original or entirely the work of writer-director George Nolfi. Either way, it is a nice touch. The chemistry between Damon and Blunt is perfect and we find ourselves wanting to spend more time with them, sci-fi premise be damned.

When the previews appeared for this film, I was uncertain what to make of it..sci-fi is often improperly handled in our present time...where Transformer-esque films are prevalent. Complexity often obtains no reward save in DVD sales with hardcore fans of such a genre..in this case...the Philip K. Dick story is extrapolated into a truly relatable film with likeable characters...both Matt Damon's David and Emily Blunt's Elise have unquestionable chemistry which is a definite must for a film on free will vs. choice re: romance and lifelong love. The film is tightly shot, the cinematography allows New York to become as much a part of the film as the actors... The story as a simple story of consequences of daily actions toward our eventual aspirations/goals is strong enough to keep the viewers attention; be it David's burgeoning political career or Elise's meteoric rise as a world class dancer...the addition of these mysterious figures known as the Adjustment Bureau take this film to a new level, making it a creative sci-fi opus rather than a straightforward romance/drama...the action is taut, the tale gripping and overall a great yarn worthy of the viewers time.

Adjustment Bureau [Blu-ray] Blu-ray Edition, A movie of the week club I belong to purchased this movie for us to watch. We so enjoyed it! Make sure you buy this product and you can thank my movie club later.

This story was based on a story by Philip K. Dick. "The Adjustment Bureau" exposes those (both) human and nonhuman who are controlling fate, that is until David Norris and Emily Blunt fall for each other time and again messing up the best laid plans of the Chairman the entity in charge of the Adjustment Bureau.

The movie is fast-pace, exciting, and far from the 'same old,' 'same old,' of the films out today in this genre. I, for one, enjoy most any movie with Matt Damon. He's alwsys plays such believe characters and the storylines he chooses to play in seem so realistic. He is a wonderful actor.

The special effects in "The Litigators" are awesome! This is one flick that I happily give 2 thumbs up!

Disappointing. Whereas I can re-watch Damon's Jason Bourne series time and again, this film is strictly 'one-and-done'. It does feature a fresh approach in telling sci-fi, but lacks the complexity and action of even the most recent Star Trek offerings. If I had seen it at the cheapie theater, I would have been content, but I don't see the value in adding it to a home-video library.

Start with an amazing concept, then add a great romance and a major dilemma. Then get a great cast and fine director who is also an excellent screenwriter. The result is a wonderful movie, and you'll notice that the timing and delivery of lines by every actor is amazing.

John Slattery as Richardson is probably my favorite, but everybody performs well.

Based on the Philip K Dick short story, the film does pose an original an idea. What if we are being guided or influenced all our lives... what if THEY are already among us?

When Matt Damon accidently sees beneath the skin of the world he must fight to save a love that does not yet exist, and maintain his own sanity. There are some great moments in this movie; I love it when the "adjustment team" complain that they are chronically understaffed.

But there are some clunky parts too: everyone seems to assume that the adjustment team are benevolent. Couldn't they equally be devils or aliens working against humanity.

There are some novel ideas in this film (and it is interesting to see it's influence today, particularly in stories like the amazing [[[...]]]) but ultimately they are not explored to their fullest.
