Matt Damon is an interesting guy. His film career has taken the path in which he weaves big successful films in with much crappier fare. I mean, the guy has been in films like Good Will Hunting, Saving Private Ryan, Oceans 11, and most recently the Coen brothers magnificent True Grit remake. Then again, he has been in movies like Stuck on You, Dogma, The Brothers Grimm, and Oceans 12 which are so bad that they beg the question of why they were made in the first place? Damon is an interesting character because there is always the possibility of something great in his films, but there is also the possibility of severe disappointment. Sure, this exists with most actors/actresses in Hollywood, but usually they fall primarily on one end of the scale or another. Damon is sitting right in the middle of the see-saw.
When commercials and trailers for The Adjustment Bureau began to air, I immediately knew that it was not a movie I would pay $10 to see. I had a strong suspicion that it was going to be one of those Damon films that everybody was better off not seeing and there was no way I was going to waste a movie ticket on that. When it came out on video and On Demand recently though, I gave it a second thought. As I was cruising through the On Demand menu late last night, looking for something to watch, I stumbled onto it again and decided to give it a go. I mean, there was always the possibility it was decent right? That possibility always exists with Damon. Plus, Emily Blunt was in it, so at least I got to spend some time with her as well. I clicked purchase and soon thereafter regretted the decision. I should point out that there are SPOILERS below, so if you still want to be surprised by The Adjustment Bureau, then good luck because it is not that kind of film. No, I jest. If you do not want to have the major plot points ruined, I would recommend you come back a little later.
