"Inception 2 : Matt Damon has a go."

Haven't seen it, but the trailer makes it seem a lot like Dark City.

This was surprisingly good! Though the script read a bit like a comic book, it was still well written and endearing. What surprised me was the humanity portrayed by the Adjustment Bureau, who I expected to be cold, mechanistic beings serving some creeper hierarchy. But they weren't, they were unexpectedly humane.

Also, the story brought up interesting questions about free will and control, and I thought it was a good metaphor for the way the world is being controlled right now, in a way.

The romance between the two leads was believable and their chemistry was enjoyable to watch.

I saw this last night and thought it was pretty good.

It was 'Inception Like' but the romanctic storyline to it was enjoyable to watch as well.

Wasn't amazing, but it's worth watching

I adored it. Really, the film had so much heart - the relationship between Blunt and Damon was awesome. Proper old school screwball comedy type stuff. The romance was really well played, with Blunt's feisty dancer chick more than a match for Damon's president-in-the-making.

Yes, it's not as cerebral as Inception. But it's not really trying to be. It's much more about the external [imposed choices, free will, the shadowy powers in charge] rather than the internal world.

It's beautifully shot and nicely acted. Director dude shows a surprisingly light and deft touch, allowing the sheer likeability of the two stars to shine through - as an audience member, you want them to succeed and be together.

I am starting to really rate Damon as a leading man - he seems to improve with every film.

Light, frothy and well-crafted. Another great PKD adaptation.

Crapola. It wasn't too bad in from the start, but the whole story just became more and more unbearable as it went along. Emily Blunt was its saving grace at least. She reminded me of a dear friend, which helped me not fall asleep. Shame, it had potential.

i'd say all in all it was an ok movie.

definitely well done, well acted, all that.

but nothing that'll leave me with a long-lasting impression or that'll make it stand out

I would say that the story line was great but they faltered with its execution. It had a deep cast and all is set for its take off but unfortunately, it did not capitalize that much. It had a very simple story with lots of possibilities. It was about free will and how you are willing to go out of your destiny to pursue what you really want. And that's how life is. You can be geared towards something but suddenly change course.

I have mixed feelings.

I liked the chemistry between Damon and Blunt. And the mindf*ck was fun, but mild.

But there were too many "let me explain" scenes. And Terrence Stamp's character was badly written.

I have the same feeling from watching "being John Malkovich": could have been great, but not quite.

there was something missing.
