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

This is a grown-up movie by men who've suddenly realised that their inner Peter Pans have deserted them.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This has to be one of Spielberg's best ever...

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.
