The Adjustment Bureau - A Movie Review

I simply love Emily Blunt and Hunky loves Matt Damon, therefore The Adjustment Bureau seemed like our kind of movie! We finally remembered to go see a movie on cheap movie night, tickets on Tuesday are only $5. This means we put some of that saved ticket money towards a huge tub of popcorn and a red freezy drink. (Yum!)

The movie is all about destiny - is it something that we ourselves control or are there other forces at work? Damon plays David Norris a man who gets a forbidden glimpse at the forces behind the scenes - we follow him through life after this revelation and see how his new knowledge effects his choices and actions. The kicker is when Norris falls in love with a woman, Elise (Emily Blunt,) who is not apart of his destiny... There will be times during this movie that you are on the edge of your seat!

I really enjoyed the movie, there were so many twists and turns. I found myself gasping quite a bit and getting really involved in the story. This is one of those movies that you'll want to discuss after it's over - so bring a friend who will let you talk over all the little details. I would really like to watch the film again - as I feel like there were things that I missed out on when I was trying to piece together the puzzle. Hunky stated that it was better than he expected it to be... ha ha ha!

If you haven't already seen it - here's the trailer:
