Movie Review: The Adjustment Bureau

I've seen this movie like a million times weeks ago. The story is really epic.
The genre of the movie is a unique combination of Sci-Fi and Romance. I guess it's the reason why I loved it.

David Norris (Matt Damon) runs as a senate in the state of New York at the very young age of 24. He then met a beautiful lady, Elise (Emily Blunt), and he fell hopelessly in love her. It was almost like a love at first sight. The Adjustment Bureau, on the other hand, is a group of people who lives a little more than the normal people. They wear a certain type of hat that allows them to go through doors which transports them to a different place -somewhere farther. They make sure that David's life, specifically, go with 'the plan'. And according to 'the plan', he is not destined to be with Elise. The Adjustment Bureau warned him though. If he chooses to stay with Elise, her future will be ruined. He had no choice; he had to leave her. After eleven months, David found out that Elise was about to get married with some other guy. Of course he had to go after her, and so he did.
He risked everything for Elise, even almost his career; and she risked everything for David -she went with him regardless of the circumstances.
The Adjustment Bureau was manipulating their lives the entire time. The moment they fought for their free will, they were finally destined to be together, still according to 'the plan'.

Overall rating: 7.5 out of 10

I loved Emily Blunt and her British accent ever since I watched this movie.
