The Adjustment Bureau – movie review

The Adjustment Bureau is out on DVD and we got to watch it this week. I was initially annoyed by this movie because it was frustrating to watch as someone else tried to control the main character’s (played by Matt Damon) every move.

But soon, I started getting deeper into it and it reminded me a little of the movie Inception but without all the cool special effects.  I loved Inception, and just like that movie, in The Adjustment Bureau there are deeper meanings, spiritual and religious undertones, and it’s an overall good movie.  Of course, it helps that Matt Damon is in the movie- he is a great actor and always delivers a great performance, and this movie is no different.  The concept or theme is simple and yet quite complex, and eventually, you begin to understand the entire story as it begin to unfolds.  I do not want to spoil it for you so you will have to watch it for yourself but it is worth the 1 hr 45 minutes and whether you are Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, or atheist, this movie will leave you thinking about what it is that is truly your … plan, and the bigger question: Are YOU in control of it?

Have you seen the movie?  If so, what did you think?
