Modern Love Story

Matt Damon and Emily Blunt star in this rather predictable science fiction love story. Damon is a New York politician, just a regular guy from Brooklyn with JFK like charisma and Blunt is dancer from England. They meet in a bathroom and it is love at first sight. A perfect Ken and Barbie kind of yuppie couple. Some strange men in hats appear and become a road block to the happy couple. They are in control of all the things that happen on earth. They seem to be some kind of guardian angels, steering helpless mankind into survival. The script gets a bit convoluted and our couple are the star crossed type of Romeo and Juliet depth of love. Damon and Blunt are likeable enough for me to recommend This film for some light hearted diversion.

"They stole his future. Now he's taking it back."

An aspiring politician (Damon) seemingly meets by accident a professional dancer (Blunt), with whom he is immediately smitten, but when members of the Adjustment Bureau intervene to keep them apart, a characteristically reckless Damon determines to track this woman down in defiance of the enigmatic "Chairman."

Stylishly mixing genres, Nolfi has crafted an oddly realistic, sci-fi tinged romantic thriller (loosely based on Dick's 1954 short story), with a refreshing emphasis on the touching central romance, rather than on any distracting visual effects.

A location-heavy love letter to New York, the film poses provocative questions about how much control we have over our lives, and what parts fate and chance play.

Blu-ray Extras: Commentary, Featurettes, Deleted/Extended Scenes, Interactive Map. ***½ (7/10)

What A Bore!

The acting in this movie is terrible, the characters are like talking puppets. Matt Damon plays the same guy from Good Will Hunting, the intelligent guy with a pitiable background. Emilly Blunts character is just as stereotypical, playing the struggling artist with a bad girl complex. The bowler hat guys are the worst because they have nothing of interest to say, in fact they all behave the same way, It's like they are there to make you think something is happening, when nothing really is. I don't see the romance between the two main characters, if anything the intimate moments between the two made me cringe. The dialogue between all these characters are not memorable or interesting, obviously the script lets it down. There is absolutely no charm in this movie or it's characters, you cannot substitute good acting or writing with a silly far fetched plot.
