Review: I'm embarrassed, that was the worst plot summary of a film ever; some of it doesn't make sense and it looks like a complete different story than what is actually is. The same goes for the trailer and some of the advertisement posters too. I have to agree with Claudia Winkleman and Danny Leigh from Film 2011 on this one, because the posters I've seen around town are terrible for this film! Not only does Emily Blunt not wear that silk red dress, but the film is absolutely nothing like Inception or The Bourne films! Ok, they are similar to two ways, Inception and this both have a sense of Sci-fi, something different than the norm. And Bourne and The Adjustment Bureau both have Matt Damon in.
All round, a fantastic, atypical, lovable film and I think anyone will like it. Don't watch it if you're not up to following along the storyline though, you'll get bored easily.
and below is the trailer for The Adjustment Bureau.
After seeing the film, I think it makes the film look different to what it actual is, but the music behind the trailer still gives me goosebumps which evidently made me download it.
