The Adjustment Bureau

On Saturday some of my friends from home came to Indy to visit because they are already on Spring Break! It was really great to see them! Well, I thought it was until they forced me to go see The Adjustment Bureau.

I’m not going to ruin it in case you haven’t seen it but it just might be one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. It reminded me of Inception, which I also disliked. It involved going through doors and changing your fate. It was weirder than it sounds.  At the beginning of the movie there were cameos from real life politicians which I did enjoy. But by the time I got to the end of the movie, I was tired and did not understand it.

Matt Damon starred in the leading role as an aspiring politician who is faced with the choice of becoming President of the US or spending his life with the woman he loves, who he just met once but suddenly loves for some reason. Damon’s acting was really good in this movie so kudos for that!

Usually I like things more when I see them a second time so maybe if I saw it again I would enjoy it more. I wasn’t too happy going to see it because it meant I had to miss Miley Cyrus host Saturday Night Live which probably contributed to my displeasure in the movie.

Here’s the trailer for the movie:

    I know! I LOVE his movies! But the plot just wasn’t developed in this one! Ooh, I’ve never seen Momento. And by the sounds of it maybe I don’t need to hahaha

    Oh sad, usually Matt Damon movies are really good. I’ve heard this is not his best from several people…mostly that he is good but the plot isn’t. It sounds like Momento to me, which was also confusing.
