10/7/2011 by Leah RozenAccomplished filmmaking that features two highly attractive, talented leads, a healthy dose of sentiment, an intelligent script, and which takes you away for two hours from the quotidian worries and banalities of your regular life.
6/23/2011 by Leonard MaltinNolfi and his colleagues make especially good use of New York, filming everywhere from the Brooklyn waterfront to the lobby of the Museum of Modern Art. It's a fresh look at a familiar city. But Nolfi drops the ball in the home stretch, and that's...
4/4/2011 by Claudia PuigThis mind-meld of sci-fi thriller, morality play and passionate romance is worth seeing, mostly for the palpable chemistry between the lead actors.
3/19/2011 by Rafer GuzmanDamon and Blunt give such terrific performances you might almost forgive the movie's dopey ending.
3/9/2011 by Bill GoodykoontzThe on-screen pairing of Matt Damon and Emily Blunt is so winning that you may be willing to overlook the oddly modulating tone of the story that brings them together and then tries to keep them apart.
3/4/2011 by Stephen WhittyFans looking for something a little different will find it here - as well as the first real romance of the year.
3/4/2011 by Jeannette CatsoulisCradled in Damon's solidly reliable hands, even a movie as extravagantly silly as this one gains heft and credibility, an impressive accomplishment when you consider that the entire plot revolves around magic notebooks and spellbinding hats.
Globe and Mail
3/4/2011 by Rick GroenSometimes, a strong premise makes for a weak movie, which ends up drowning in its own clever conceit.
3/4/2011 by Tom LongIt's hard to imagine a more spectacularly silly film making it to theaters this year than The Adjustment Bureau.
3/4/2011 by Christopher OrrThe Adjustment Bureau presents itself as a paean to free will, to overcoming obstacles, to creating your own destiny-provided, that is, that you happen to be a dude.
Christian Science Monitor
3/4/2011 by Peter RainerBecause the chemistry between Damon and Blunt is so strong, what might have been a jumble of Matrix-style oddments comes across instead as ardent.
3/4/2011 by Laremy LegelThe Adjustment Bureau has you pondering the angles throughout, and it's a credit to newly minted director George Nolfi that he never lets his foot off the gas pedal.
New York Post
3/4/2011 by Lou LumenickThe misleading trailers for the supremely goofy "The Adjustment Bureau" promise action-packed sci-fi. What you actually get is a love-struck Matt Damon running for the US Senate as he's stalked by fedora-wearing angels.
3/4/2011 by Ann HornadayA smart, stylish thriller that melds science fiction, romance and Hitchcock-ian intrigue with surprising ease.
3/4/2011 by Roger Ebert"The Adjustment Bureau" is a smart and good movie that could have been a great one if it had a little more daring.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
3/4/2011 by Calvin WilsonSuspenseful, romantic and wryly funny, "The Adjustment Bureau" is the kind of film that reaffirms one's faith in Hollywood.
San Francisco Chronicle
3/3/2011 by Mick LaSalleEasily one of the best American love stories of the past year.
3/3/2011 by Andrew O'HehirYou can feel the influence of classic American movies like "North by Northwest" and "The Graduate" here, and while I won't argue that Nolfi matches those examples, his ambition is admirable.
New York Times
3/3/2011 by Manohla DargisWhether running or kissing or running and kissing (well, almost), Mr. Damon and Ms. Blunt turn romance into a palpable race.
Dallas Morning News
3/3/2011 by Gary DowellA thoughtful and thought-provoking romance with a touch of the fantastic.
