The Adjustment Bureau Movie Review

 

My wife and I watched The Adjustment Bureau tonight..so yea I don’t have to do that again.

It isn’t so much that it is a bad film as it just doesn’t seem to really be very substantial. The film sets up this very complex sounding story only to make it very un-complex and very pedestrian at the end. The climatic resolution was telegraphed 10 minutes before it happened and when the credits rolled I was left with this very unsatisfied feeling and not because I wanted more, because I felt like the film didn’t really try all that hard.

The characters are interesting and Matt Damon does a good job in the role of David Norris. Emily Blunt was very compelling as Elise. I even loved the character played by Mad Men’s Slattery. The problem wasn’t the cast or the characters. Ultimately it was a good idea for a story..without much story actually executed.

I am, at heart, a software developer though I am currently managing a small Information Technology department for a mid sized company located in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL. When I am not playing with the latest smart-phone or trying to become inspired to write code I read almost anything I can get my hands on from Pulp Era adventures to biographies of world leaders and everything in between.
