Critic Reviews for Minority Report

All Critics (239) | Top Critics (49)

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

New Yorker
Top Critic

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.

Wall Street Journal
Top Critic

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

New York Magazine/Vulture
Top Critic

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.

Full Review… | August 5, 2013
Associated Press
Top Critic

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.

Newsweek
Top Critic

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

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.

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.
