Though it's not among the finest adaptations of Philip K. Dick, Minority Report has aged rather well with its prescient, paranoiac glimpse of the not-distant-enough future.
February 28, 2020
It's a handsome film-certainly better than A.I.-but ultimately rather tedious and falsely sentimental, as Spielberg films have a tendency to be.
November 13, 2019
Deviation from the original Dick story leaves huge gaps in the plot which require implausible explanations in order to close out the film.
January 3, 2019
Spielberg creates an intriguing world that is at once futuristic and accessible, it makes our collective imagination soar but is never alienating.
May 17, 2018
By turning Dick's ironic little story into a gargantuan thriller celebrating free choice, Spielberg has been true to his character: He's transformed something dark and scary into something softer and more comfortable.
June 15, 2016
If less poetic than AI, Minority Report is much more confidently directed, with a firmer sense of its maker's own urge to entertain and stimulate rather than bemuse.
June 15, 2016
Even if he belabors the ending and can't resist tempering the darkness with a strained ray of hopefulness, Minority Report is a document that proves Spielberg among the top ranks in a minority of film geniuses.

The worst thing about the new Steven Spielberg picture is the title, Minority Report. The best thing about it is pretty much everything else.
August 5, 2013
This is a grown-up movie by men who've suddenly realised that their inner Peter Pans have deserted them.
August 5, 2013
Too much of Minority Report is facile, albeit at a very high level.
August 5, 2013
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.
August 5, 2013
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.
August 5, 2013
[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.
August 5, 2013
High-concept science-fiction escapades often try to impose new ways of seeing, but Spielberg seems intent on blistering our optic nerves.
August 5, 2013
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.
October 22, 2012
The movie's combination of old and new influences energizes its believable futuristic elements.
January 20, 2011
Not simply Steven Spielberg's most prescient sci-fi work but also one of his finest.
December 26, 2010
Violent sci-fi detective movie isn't for kids.
September 19, 2010
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.
July 6, 2010
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.
