Are you under control named ‘fate’? – The Adjustment Bureau

I dropped by a theater to watch a movie last month: The Adjustment Bureau.

Can we control our own destinies? Or the fates just show us a way and we have to go along it? Some people might say that we have to make our way and our goals on our own. David Norris, a senatorial candidate, has been struggling to climb up the stairs named ‘honor’. However, he stumbled over a scandal on his way. He dropped by the bathroom in disappointment so that he arranged for his speech. A sudden advice for his address just came out from the bathroom, in which no one was supposed to be. Elise Sellas was the one who was in possession of the advice. David and Elise, they didn’t need much time to embrace and kiss each other. They fell in love, which meant they started against their own destiny. Men in traditional suits with hats, who worked for an unknown organization called ‘the Adjustment Bureau’, had been observing David and Elise with books in their hands. According to their books, David was becoming the president of the United States of America, and Elise was grabbing the glorious name as a dancer. The books, however, also indicated that they would become eligible for such honorable status without seeing each other. Loving at first sight, coming across again, talking with each other happily, growing their own love, those were not supposed to be. The agents of the Adjustment Bureau were trying to prevent David and Elise from closing in many ways. The more the agents were disturbing them, the larger their love became. Did this sci-fi Romeo and Juliet open their fate by their own?

What makes me attracted Matt Damon? He is not that handsome(sorry!), but he has something remarkable. Maybe his smart character draws my attention. Flexibility might be one of his features. He acted a bit tactless guy in ‘Ocean’s Eleven’, brought us ‘laugh out loud’ in ‘Stuck On You’, and made us excited in ‘The Bourne Identity’. He can show us a variety of atomospheres in different roles.

As for the movie itself, the story went on as I expected. So typical that I’m sure you will be able to enjoy the movie without thinking seriously.

By the way, what do you think of your own destiny? Do you think that you have been making your own life by your own? Or by your fate?

One more thing, I at first thought Will Smith joined this movie when I saw an agent of the Adjustment Bureau. It was not Will Smith, but Anthony Mackie. He is so similar to Will Smith, isn’t he? Here, it is.
