The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

Director: George Nolfi. Cast: Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Terence Stamp. 106 min. Rated PG-13. Sci-fi/Thriller.

Chance, or choice? Right down to the villains in hats and black raincoats, this Philip K. Dick adaptation is actually a simplified version of the great philosophical 1998 sci-fi flick, Dark City, where aliens manipulated our daily lives to see the results and use it to their own benefit. As opposed to that deep movie, where the hero contemplates the fate of humanity and the world, this one is obsessed with a couple's love affair. So if you've already seen Dark City, you'll hardly be impressed by this. Except that the chemistry between Damon and Blunt is perfect. Just perfect.
