I can't attest to how well Philip K. Dick's source story about fedora-clad operatives who enforce the plan of a higher power plays on the page. I can say that the screen adaptation is too murky about just how much power these "adjusters" have and how they can be so clumsy about it to be effective. Also unclear is just why Matt Damon's senate candidate and Emily Blunt's ballerina are so completely smitten with each other that they're willing to risk destroying their lives in order to disregard destiny and rewrite their own plan. More rewriting would have been beneficial for the script, which doesn't get deep enough into the Damon-Blunt relationship or take enough advantage of John Slattery, Terence Stamp and Anthony Mackie as the puppeteers of fate.
