An entertaining movie that really takes it's time before really taking off.
A politician, David Norris, is candidating for a a seat in the senate. But he's not just any politician, he's more human than most politicians are which is one thing that explains his great success. Norris is destined for great things, greater than he can imagine, but destiny and Norris doesn't agree. Norris finds himself trapped in a fight with destiny, love and his own will. If you know your destiny, can you really change it?
Norris one day finds himself talking to a unknown woman in the mens room. She inspires him to do his most successful speech in his career, but that's not where they stop seeing each other, they bump into each other again. Destiny itself then intervenes and kidnaps Norris. These men forbids him to see this woman ever again, and now Norris is standing at a crossroad, to go against destiny and see the love of his life, or not. Who are these men and why don't they want the two to be together?

This movie is very interesting, and I did like it a lot. People keep comparing this movie to Inception, and I can agree that there are some similarities, but I don't think it's fair to my readers to be lazy and say 'it's a lot like Inception', because it's not! There's a few similarities, but not enough to make them good movies to compare to each other.
The Adjustment Bureau is a good movie, but not great. It doesn't really take off until the end, and well, it's nearly over then. It's somewhat slow in the beginning, but then it sort of gets the speed to take off, but somehow doesn't. I'm not saying that's bad, I do like the movie, but I like my movies to have it's twists and turns, and there's not a lot of them in this one. I do think people should check this movie out, I love Matt Damon, but don't expect Inception, if you do you'll be sadly disappointed.
This movie is a very interesting one, and I had a hard time figuring out how to review it. Reviewing is a balance, if you lean too much towards one side you spoil the whole movie, if you lean towards the other side you wont interest the readers, and I found this movie extremely hard to balance out! Hopefully the next review will be better! Also! Please recommend me movies to review!
