George Nolfi directs Matt Damon, Emily Blunt and Anthony Mackie in this sci-fi romance where unseen agents of fate try to nudge history so a politician and a ballet dancer do not end up together.
Sold as a chase movie on release this works better as a high concept romance. Damon and Blunt make for a favourable on-screen pairing, their meet cutes have considerable heat. Proper Hollywood chemistry. The Philip K Dick reality altering stuff is well handled and it does build to a mind bending mad dash finale. This is a very classy movie for adults, one that is ageing well with every year due to its timeless visual design. Well worth getting lost in.
