What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith The Sci-fi angle comes in fits and starts
Pam Grady Nolfi makes a memorable directing debut in this sometimes silly, but also suspenseful and entertaining story.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert The Adjustment Bureau is a smart and good movie that could have been a great one if it had a little more daring.
Jason Anderson Decades removed from the heyday of Bogart and Bacall, we’re forced to endure some pretty bland and unconvincing screen couples. But there’s hope—the stars of The Adjustment Bureau convey the essence of true romance
James Berardinelli The story toys with the concepts of free will and predestination - an argument that has befuddled religious scholars through the ages - but the filmmakers are believers in true love and, as a testimony to that philosophy, this movie needs no adjustment.
Peter Travers Despite heroic efforts by Damon and the lovely Blunt to build a plausible love story, the movie dissolves into silliness. What Dick rendered potent, Nolfi renders preposterous.
C. Fuchs A highly entertaining and enjoyable thriller that will also make you think
Tomatometer First-time writer/director George Nolfi struggles to maintain a consistent tone, but The Adjustment Bureau rises on the strong, believable chemistry of its stars.
