The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

adjustment_bureau_xlg

The affair between a politician and a contemporary dancer is affected by mysterious forces keeping the lovers apart. (IMDb)
An interesting concept is largely flattened by numerous large dumps of blatant exposition, heavy-handed injections of theological themes (see the sappy wrap-up) and rushed ruminations on free will and the future that are anything but subtle. Still, real suspense can still be found in spite of the cheesiness (see the door-to-door climax) and the (thin) romance has its moments of charm (Damon and Blunt have good rapport) and beauty (see the touching kiss in the face of their enemies at the end).
6/10 (Mediocre)
