The Adjustment Bureau

Terrance the Trailer Trasher – @@@@

This one really snuck up on me. It starts out like it might be some rehashed political thriller, then it reveals itself as sci-fi. The kind of sci-fi that makes my mind truly boggle, dealing with age-old questions of fate versus free will. And then it reveals itself as a love story. The kind where the man has to fight metaphysically impossible odds to be with the woman he loves. All of this is conveyed in 2-1/2 minutes without ever feeling like a movie that doesn’t know what it wants to be. Each part, instead, builds organically from the others. If the movie plays out this well, I can’t wait to see it.

This really does look awesome. And unlike the trailer for “Inception” it actually does tell us what it’s about. But I fear the concept can be as tricky as time travel with respect to logic loopholes. For example, I hope they explain how someone can get derailed from their destiny long enough to seriously alter the path that’s been pre-determined for them to follow. Kinda how it was explained in “Heaven Can Wait.” This movie might need Mr. Jordan to make some adjustments for the audience. Have a little fate.

Opens March 4, 2011 (adjusted from original release date of September 17, 2010).

Friday we’ll review the trailer for Oliver Stone’s long-awaited sequel to 1987’s “Wall Street.” But tune in tomorrow for a Special Edition of The Trailer Trashers, when Terrance will review movies that haven’t even been made yet!
