Blade Runner Meets Bourne?

The Adjustment Bureau

Last night the Geckos watched The Adjustment Bureau, which (our movie critic hero) Mark Kermode said on Kermode and Mayo’s film review on Radio 5 Live, is charming and a bit like Blade Runner meets Bourne. He also says it’s ‘air-heady’.

Well this reviewer enjoyed the film. It may not be intellectual, but it is interesting and although ‘the doors’ may be a little obvious and its direction may be like sign-posting, it showcases New York in all its splendour to stunning effect. It was visually great, with fabulous views and stunning cinematography of the architecture, park, Brooklyn bridge, the streets, etc. But in general, to me the film wasn’t an action film, it wasn’t a sci-fi film, it was a simple love story – and it was well done, because I found myself wanting the two leads (Matt Damon and Emily Blunt) to live happily ever after.

Here’s what Mark Kermode said about it – but watch it for yourself, its a very enjoyable film for an autumnal evening!
