Storyline

In the year 2054 A.D. crime is virtually eliminated from Washington D.C. thanks to an elite law enforcing squad "Precrime". They use three gifted humans (called "Pre-Cogs") with special powers to see into the future and predict crimes beforehand. John Anderton heads Precrime and believes the system's flawlessness steadfastly. However one day the Pre-Cogs predict that Anderton will commit a murder himself in the next 36 hours. Worse, Anderton doesn't even know the victim. He decides to get to the mystery's core by finding out the 'minority report' which means the prediction of the female Pre-Cog Agatha that "might" tell a different story and prove Anderton innocent. Written by Soumitra

Entertaining Movie with Holes
28 June 2002 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

The fuel-celled, powered cars looked something like a scene from the animated Disney movie, "Tron" and the special effects of the cars almost seemed to be the same, about 15, 20 years old. This movie while fun and engrossing doesn't really rise to the qualitative level of the visionary "Blade Runner." The overemphasis of style over substance in the beginning felt more like a director who wanted to try to show off the futuristic gadgetry except with less success than in "2001: A Space Odyssey." There are irritating lapses in believeability, where Tom Cruise overlooks the simple fact that he can be located through electronic surveillance of his retinal patterns, as a top cop he can't even physically defend himself successfully from an amateur Justice Department sleuth, that stun guns aren't used when they would be most effective, and crime fighters can even set up a trap to "surround" someone even when they know where their suspect is going to be.

Overlooking these obvious glitches, the movie moves apace with a decent plot and some interesting futuristic set designs and gadgets that were created based on real ideas about the future. The personal emotions of the characters poured through at appropriate times, though the use and manner of humor in the movie tended to diminish the seriousness and realism that a director such as Ridley Scott would have brought to the screen - here Spielberg was trying to be too cute. This movie won't win any awards except for technical and special effects and design but it will bring in the bucks for action. This movie probably raises more questions in this time of heightened terrorist fear and civil rights sensitivity than it answers.

In short, "A Minority Report" is just about picking the right sandwich and milk bottle from a refrigerator when you're blind and groping through the darkened alleys of the imagination of Phillip K. Dick, the sci fi author who penned the short story upon which this movie was based.
