Minority Report Reviews

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.

Minority Report is exactly what the title indicates, a report.

The fashionably fussy, funky veneer may convince some that the film's serious, but it's finally another chase pic, murky in detail, muddled in ideology and strangely predictable in dramatic thrust.

Minority Report aspires to more than mere mindlessness, but fails miserably, and as a result crystallizes nearly everything that I dislike about Spielberg's films.

Spielberg's most unpleasant and derivative film, a nasty, tired, predictable affair that makes Hook look comparable to Schindler's List.

Cold, unmoving, and desperately in need of a beating heart and a soaring soul, Minority Report is one of the most depressing disappointments of the year.

The action is fun, but the more you think about it, the slighter it feels and the more holes show.

The two main women in this film make the Pre-Crime Unit possible, but don't benefit themselves. Guess the future isn't that much different. The guys are still having all the fun, while the girls either make that possible or sit by and watch.

Spielberg is like a father who tells his kids scary bedtime stories but can't bear it if they have nightmares.

Although...visually striking and slickly staged, it's also cold,grey, antiseptic and emotionally desiccated.

Only the latest Spielberg film to work best as an analogy for his middle-late career.

Minority Report is more humdrum than horrible. It isn't futuristic film noir; it's just everyday film beige.

Cold and scattered, Minority Report commands interest almost solely as an exercise in gorgeous visuals. That's not vintage Spielberg and that, finally, is minimally satisfying.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

As with A.I., Spielberg's admirable intent is to create a prescient, serious science-fiction movie. But neither A.I. nor this film comes close.

Much of Minority Report is inspired, but the movie is also packed with oddball, overdone acting, the occasional clunker cliche and the feeling that Spielberg couldn't leave well enough alone.

Spielberg apparently can't resist throwing in a cheerful, make-em-weep ending, which pretty much ruins the movie.

| Original Score: 3/5

Visually stunning and imaginative, this otherwise generic cop drama totally drops the ball when it comes to its most interesting and unique aspects of free will vs. pre-determination.

City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

Lacking a consistent view of his source material, Spielberg pulls out all the stops by attempting to roll three wildly different genres -- action-adventure, psychological thriller, and futuristic tone poem -- into one film.
