Both leads seem miscast and not quite comfortable with their roles or each other., Damon especially. The premise of the film was so unlikely and unreal that it all seemed pretty pointless. Were they trying for a Groundhog type effect. Switched off well before the end.

This is an unusual mix of sci-fi, thriller and romance. A politician (Matt Damon) has a couple of chance encounters with a beautiful dancer (Emily Blunt). Or are they chance encounters? He has this feeling the two of them are meant to be together. But a strange group of men in hats want to keep them apart at all costs. In my view, the intense romantic interludes are what make this film worth watching. Matt Damon is excellent as always, but the real revelation is Emily Blunt, who is amazing (and British).

A sci-fi love story
A budding politician (Matt Damon) falls for a budding ballet dancer (Emily Blunt). He then discovers that humanity is being manipulated by a mysterious organisation which has awesome powers and wants to keep the two lovers apart. The whole movie is about the hero's efforts to get back together with the heroine. OK, it's not Oscar material, but it's still an enjoyable romantic comedy with special effects, played with a lot of panache by the two leads.
