On all levels, this show is an absolute disappointment.
June 15, 2018
Unfortunately, the absence of visual identity, even bolstered by the presence of some nifty future tech, leaves Minority Report a bit paint-by-numbers as crime procedurals go.

Overall: meh.

Together they form an unlikely crime-fighting team. Tom Cruise doesn't show up - but Wilmer Valderrama surprisingly fits right in as one of the cops. Welcome back to prime time, Fez.

Much like the murder victims the precognitives see, I don't see a very good future for Minority Report.

Minority Report seems like it's going to be just another monster-of-the-week procedural that asks none of the big questions that made the movie special. But hey, at least there are plenty of cool leather jackets.

It's not that this adaptation of an adaptation is poorly made; it's that from top to bottom it comes across as completely uninspired.
September 22, 2015
Unless you're super invested in the premise, this is worth skipping.
September 22, 2015
If "cinematic" is a compliment, then "networky" is probably its corresponding pejorative, and Minority Report is networky to the extreme.

Spielberg is an executive producer, and while the pilot is sleek-looking and tech-savvy, it's also kind of boring.
September 22, 2015
Minority Report the show takes the DNA of Dick's work and Spielberg's vision and does what modern adaptations should: update them to reflect how the world has changed since the story was published (in this case, 1956).
September 22, 2015
If it were possible to see the future, the makers of Minority Report might have foretold the problems inherent in making a TV series from Steven Spielberg's 2002 hit.
September 22, 2015
With a little more delicacy and a lot less hand-holding, Minority Report could be a serviceable, and maybe even smart, hour of science-fiction.

The series premiere was super sleek, action-packed, fast-paced and introduced a likable cast. It wasn't perfect, but what pilot is?
Full Review | Original Score: 3.7/5
September 22, 2015
Fox's television sequel came out clunky in its pilot, looking more like a work in progress cut to pieces by studio notes than a finished product fit for fall consumption.
September 21, 2015
Well-made sci-fi show based on the Tom Cruise movie that will struggle to find an audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 21, 2015
Science-fiction meets crime-solving buddy drama in an extension of the 2002 movie.

September 21, 2015
The show is a doddering police procedural whose central conceit is that everyone just really, really wishes they had handy psychic precogs to solve crimes before they happen.
September 21, 2015
Minority Report' is best when it keeps things light, fun.
September 21, 2015
The reliance on computer screens and post-production dazzle dazzle is subterfuge for its general lack of content.
