The story is interesting at the beginning but turns into a simple chase movie. It is hard to follow the dialogue which is important because many important story arcs are revealed through dialogue. The acting is standard acting for this type of movie. Overall it's a good chase movie.
classic sci-fi movie. great story, lots of cool scenes. very creative and innovative. some really cool action scenes. but what stands out above the rest are 1) the premise and the way it was executed and 2) the story. very clever. (about 4 viewings)
160520: I remember seeing the previews for this film and thinking it may be pretty neat. Well, I waited 14 years and it definitely is not neat. Too many holes and no redeeming features. Garage sale pile.
Meh. Maybe it just doesn't hold up anymore, but I found Minority Report to be just meh. Some of the CGI and action sequences are dreadfully bad. The story is interesting but somewhat confusing and I can think of a few plot holes. Cruise gives a typical Cruise performance. All in all, I wasn't blown away by this.
Minority Report is a bit too long and can at times seem inconsistent in its pacing. That being said, Tom Cruise delivers as always, and a strong supporting cast help to make this Spielberg Sci-Fi worth taking a look at.
