Movie Info

Based on a short story by the late Philip K. Dick, this science fiction-thriller reflects the writer's familiar preoccupation with themes of concealed identity and mind control. Tom Cruise stars as John Anderton, a Washington, D.C. detective in the year 2054. Anderton works for "Precrime," a special unit of the police department that arrests murderers before they have committed the actual crime. Precrime bases its work on the visions of three psychics or "precogs" whose prophecies of future

The worst thing about the new Steven Spielberg picture is the title, Minority Report. The best thing about it is pretty much everything else.

Though his movie wraps challenging ideas and ingenious visual conceits in a futurist film-noir style, it's pretentious, didactic and intentionally but mercilessly bleak.

High-concept science-fiction escapades often try to impose new ways of seeing, but Spielberg seems intent on blistering our optic nerves.

For its stunning visuals and standout performances, Minority Report -- or at least the first three-fourths of it -- might just be the best movie so far this year.

Ferociously intense, furiously kinetic, it's expressionist film noir science fiction that, like all good sci-fi, peers into the future to shed light on the present.

A highly effective thriller whose futuristic panoramas rival those of A.I. Artificial Intelligence.

Too much of Minority Report is facile, albeit at a very high level.

This masterfully sleek vision of the future from director Steven Spielberg is an awesome mix of skewed science fiction, twisty Hitchcock-style thrills, stunning blue-grey tinged photography and outstanding design.

[Minority Report] takes themes from Blade Runner, Total Recall and especially the little seen Gary Fleder-directed Impostor and stirs them up into an absorbing thriller.

The movie's combination of old and new influences energizes its believable futuristic elements.

Not simply Steven Spielberg's most prescient sci-fi work but also one of his finest.

Violent sci-fi detective movie isn't for kids.

Vigorously entertaining and tremendously weird, "Minority Report" feels like a vintage Action Comics adventure spiked with acid. It's an uncommonly melancholy blockbuster about demons ruthlessly determining our fate even as we relentlessly flee them.

One of the few films I've seen so far this year that I would recommend and it is one to see on the big screen.

While the way in which Minority Report presents these ideas makes them far more incredible and fantastical, it's their truth...that turns the film into something far more dark and sinister.

The most exciting piece of work Spielberg has delivered in ages.

Brilliantly realised, complex and humane, Minority Report is easily on a par with Blade Runner as one of the best adaptations of Philip K Dick's work ever made.

Audience Reviews for Minority Report

A spectacular and mind-blowing blast of science fiction and suspense. Director, Steven Spielberg has crafted a marvelous achievement and one of his best films ever. A brilliant edge of your seat thriller that`s loaded with jaw-dropping special effects and non-stop thrills from start to finish. It`s full-on excitement with some great and kinetic action sequences. A stunning, breathtaking and tremendously entertaining movie. A high tech mystery that just blows your mind and imagination. An exhilarating and pulse-pounding roller-coaster ride you do not want to miss. A solid and remarkable masterpiece. Tom Cruise is terrific. Colin Farrel is excellent. Max Von Sydow is brilliant.

One of Spielberg's more underrated films. An astonishing visual style, great performances, an intriguing plot and superb direction from Spielberg.

Entertaining for the most part, but many of the concepts introduced in the film are flawed. I wouldn't call "Minority Report" the most intelligent science-fiction film ever made. Maybe one of the most interesting. The future that Spielberg creates is believable and is one that certainly could happen. Maybe not the whole predicting the future thing, but most of the technology used in the film mirrors the technology in our world today.

On a narrative standpoint, "Minority Report" is intense yet many of the things that happen may make you wonder why they happened. The entire story is based on Anderton seeing himself as a future killer. The question is, how did his future appear on that screen? Everything is based on what he saw but if he didn't see it none of the things that happened would have happened. It's a flawed concept that really doesn't make any sense.

    1. Officer John Anderton: You see the dilemma, don't you? If you don't kill me, Precogs were wrong and Precrime is over. If you do kill me, you go away, but it proves the system works. Precogs were right. So, what are you gonna do now? What's it worth? Just one more murder.
