Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: You can feel the influence of classic American movies like "North by Northwest" and "The Graduate" here, and while I won't argue that Nolfi matches those examples, his ambition is admirable.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Thursday, March 3, 2011
Fresh: A smart, stylish thriller that melds science fiction, romance and Hitchcock-ian intrigue with surprising ease.
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, March 4, 2011
Fresh: The on-screen pairing of Matt Damon and Emily Blunt is so winning that you may be willing to overlook the oddly modulating tone of the story that brings them together and then tries to keep them apart.

A spectacular, stylish, thought-provoking and highly entertaining romantic thriller. I loved this movie. It`s smartly paced, character driven and vastly original that dose not go over the limit or try to be more than what it is. It the perfect blend of sci-fi mystery, thrills and romance. It has your attention from the start all the way to the finish and dose not stop to catch its breath. An instant classic. Director, George Nolfi crafts a superb and dazzling genre piece. A sensational masterwork. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt give such terrific performances, their chemistry is passionate, compelling and romantic. They are a screen couple that actually work.

Star-crossed lovers are kept apart by an omniscient bureau because their perfect, fulfilling love will dampen all other desires, including their respective ambitions to attain professional success in politics and DANCE. I don't particularly buy that thesis, nor that the universe wouldn't have better things to do than keep Matt Damon and Emily Blunt apart, but the light chase movie is kinda fun, cutesy, and dangerous but not so dangerous that a happy ending isn't ensured.
