Wonderful movie. A couple of plot inconsistencies kept it from the 5th star, but overall it made you wonder, made you think, kept you intrigued. Damon and Blount had surprising chemistry.

I never pegged Blount for leading lady role, but this movie changed my mind. I believe her turn in Edge of Tomorrow confirmed her leading lady status. Damon is ... well Damon (personable, charming, easy to like and root for).

I'd see it again and again.

From the short story "Adjustment Team" by Philip K. Dick, this is an entertaining flick, unpretentiously well made, and well played. For some reason, Philip K. Dick short stories seems to make good film material. Think of Blade Runner...

Great flick for movie night. On location shooting in NYC is a plus. Enjoyable entertainment.

For those how look for an action film, the science fiction aspects are very bothersome.

Admittedly, Damon and Blunt were very sweet together, and there are plenty more annoying dinks in Hollywood that would've made me avoid this one altogether. The story's concept was semi-unique, but it just didn't quite gel. It was too contrived, and it eventually ran out of gas, sputtering along on fumes, before it gave up the ghost with its anticlimax.

I thought this movie was ludicrous at times. Really like the actors in general, but I thought the basic plot silly and the ending dumb. Recommend you don't waste your time.

Great script, cast, directing and the soundtrack by Thomas Newman was perfect...

A thoroughly entertaining movie, low budget, but with some excellent acting. Being a Phillip K. Dick fan, I like Matt Damon in the lead character much better in this movie than Tom Cruise with his glassy look in Minority Report.

Thompson: "...For six hundred years we taught you to control your impulses with reason. Then in 1910 we stepped back. Within fifty years, you'd brought us World War I, The Depression, fascism, The Holocaust, and capped it off by bringing the entire planet to the brink of destruction in The Cuban Missile Crisis. At that point a decision was taken to step back in again before you did something... that even WE couldn't fix. You don't have free will, David. You have the *appearance* of free will."

David Norris: I can go through this door alone. You'll never see me or the people chasing us again, or you can come with me, and I don't know what's on the other side, but you'd be next to me and that's all I've wanted since the minute I met you.
