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

Trivia

Steven Spielberg had enjoyed Kathryn Morris's performance in Rod Lurie's The Contender (2000) so had given her a small part in A.I.. However, Morris's scenes ended up being cut so Spielberg gave her the part of Lara to make up for that. See more »

Goofs

When Anderton confronts and then shoots Leo Crow, Agatha is crawling off the bed and takes most of the pictures off the bed onto the floor with her. Later, when Witwer and the PreCrime team are studying the crime scene, the pictures are back on the bed. It is unlikely that either Anderton or Agatha would have stopped to put the pictures back on the bed before leaving, and no policeman worth his salt would have disturbed a crime scene and scooped up the pictures and put them on the bed.

Looks great, interesting story
4 February 2003 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

May be this film has some flaws but while watching it I wasn't too distracted by that. Here we have one of the greatest directors alive (Steven Spielberg), a very big star (Tom Cruise) with a great ensemble (Max von Sydow, Colin Farrell, Peter Stormare, Samantha Morton, Tim Blake Nelson) around him, a good cinematography (Janusz Kaminski) and a nice score by John Williams all packed in a great story (based on the novel by Philip K. Dick) with perfect visual effects.

In the year 2054 murders can be predicted and stopped before they happen. If you were about to kill but stopped you are locked. Tom Cruise is one of the agents who stops those murders. Then he discovers the next murder they have to stop will be committed by himself.

I will not reveal more of the plot. The story itself is great. It is intelligent, but also exciting with great action scenes. The visuals are truly beautiful and perfectly support the sci-fi story. If you like action thrillers and you don't mind they are set in the future (with some futuristic gadgets) this is your film. 9/10.
