Matt Damon is a senatorial candidate, Emily Blunt a dancer with a promising future. Will fate bring them together or keep them apart in this amalgam of love story and high-concept sci-fi thriller - the directorial debut of
screenwriter George Nolfi? Although we're not exactly talking "fate" here, but the tantalising conceit of a secret worldwide network that keeps mankind running according to "The Plan". The idea originates from a 1954 short story by sci-fi maestro Philip K Dick, and is visualised here in a sinister crew of men with notebooks and trilby hats (
regular John Slattery looks just the part) who track the romantic leads' every step. It's ambitious and imaginative, though the framework actually leaves the film struggling to explain away nagging inconsistencies as it tries to ratchet up suspense. But Damon and Blunt have such obvious chemistry we do start believing the ripple effects from a single kiss could indeed change our collective future. Sadly, stodgy pacing and an overall lack of threat means the film never quite achieves the pulse-racing intensity to do it justice.
A politician is attracted to a dancer he meets at a pivotal moment in his life, but finds his every effort to get to know her is thwarted by a group of mysterious men. He realises these shadowy figures are manipulating him and moving him toward a predetermined fate, which he resolves to fight. Sci-fi thriller, starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.
