DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller Romantic - Contrary to the advertising campaign, this is not an action thriller but more of a romantic drama with some science fiction and thriller elements. As such, this will have more female appeal than expected, and perhaps more appeal to that audience than the typical younger male action crowd. Fans of stars Matt Damon and Emily Blunt will have plenty to savor here. Language, sensuality, and violent content make the film too intense for young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The Adjustment Bureau manages to be visually arresting without calling too much attention to itself. The production finds the right emotional pitch and maintains it.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'The Adjustment Bureau' is a smart and good movie that could have been a great one if it had a little more daring.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The Adjustment Bureau is compelling enough, a sort of Inception-lite, but the plot holes take it off course.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, charismatic politician David Norris (Matt Damon) meets beautiful, contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt)—a woman unlike any he's ever known. But just as he realizes he's falling madly in love with her, strangers conspire to keep the two apart.

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