The Adjustment Bureau Reviews
Nolfi's movie works on an interesting scale and a disarmingly gentle spirit, even though it's being sold as a hard-charging romantic thriller. I like it; I hope it finds an audience.
The film bristles with the sort of contrivances that could incite derisive snickers. Yet it moves with such brisk self-assurance that the chuckles arrive only at a few comedic rest stops.
The on-screen pairing of Matt Damon and Emily Blunt is so winning that you may be willing to overlook the oddly modulating tone of the story that brings them together and then tries to keep them apart.
Mr. Nolfi, who is also making his debut as a director, is another unfortunate Christopher Nolan wannabe, so the movie is a preposterous muddle that borrows heavily from Inception, without a single original idea.
