Default Just Watched The Adjustment Bureau

I don't know why people this movie such a bad rap it's pretty good.


The only small thing I would complain about was the weak ending but, in its entirety it was really good.

I recommend it. Not buying worthy though.

Thought the same, it's worth at most 3 viewings, not something worth buying though.

I didn't really like it.

It didn't work as sci-fi and it didn't work as a love story for me. The adjustment "angels" and their rules were too arbitrary and by the end of movie, thanks to the ending, rendered completely uninteresting and meaningless. There also wasn't much development between the chemistry between the two characters for me to really give a damn about them. It was a 5/10 movie for me.

Dark City. Somewhat similar concept but done much MUCH better.

It was a good movie. I love Terrence Stamp's character. Good acting by Matt Damon, and Anthony Mackie. Damon should play the role of Robert F. Kennedy.

For some reason when I read "The Adjustment Bureau" I thought you said you saw The Bourne Legacy, and I was like "How the f*ck did you see this already? Leaked DVDSCR?"

I was unaware that it had a bad rap. I was under the impression that it is pretty good and your description seems to fit what I've heard about this movie from nearly every source.

Btw, why do we need threads for pretty good movies that have been out for a while? I watch a few "pretty good" movies every week, that is why we have a 'rate the last movie we watched' thread.

The script was just pretty weak. I kind of have a soft spot for the movie but even I have to admit that it wasn't very good.

It's not that I was expecting something else to happen at the end, it's that it was a weak ending.

Really good film, but the ending let it down in my eyes.
