This afternoon we saw The Adjustment Bureau. Unfortunately, it was just, OK. I was mildly entertained, and I wouldn’t want to totally discourage someone from seeing it, but I think it’s more worthy of a Netflix rental than a full-price theater ticket.
I didn’t know much about the story going in. I had only seen the first teaser trailer. The movie turned out to be nothing like what I had expected. I was kind of under the impression it was going to be sci-fi – kind of a cross between The Matrix and Inception. But, I would now say it’s more of a cross between Heaven Can Wait and City Of Angels. It’s not so much sci-fi as it is god-fi. And, the promotional image (above) is far too menacing for what is actually a pretty light movie.
