Minority Report Reviews

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.

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.

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 won't go down as one of Spielberg's greatest films -- there are a few gaping holes in the plot, and some awkward attempts at humor. But it's a wonderfully chilly thrill ride while it lasts.

While the film, deftly imagined by screenwriters Scott Frank and Jon Cohen, doesn't entirely hold together, its dark, twisty chases and tricky puzzles have much more going for them than Spielberg's last foray onto similar turf.

The film reaches toward greatness but fails because it is too perfect a projection of its creator. Nevertheless, we should celebrate it, because this makes it -- flaws and all -- more valuable than 1,000 soulless, committee-hatched flicks.

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.

Minority Report isn't Spielberg's best film by a long laser shot. But it may be an even bolder statement than his mostly brilliant yet roundly rejected A.I. Artificial Intelligence.
