In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent into the past, where a hired gun awaits - someone like Joe - who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. A man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
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
At the police station, the officers talk about the metaphysical proof of precognition. Chief Anderton (Tom Cruise) rolls a red ball along a table to demonstrate the law of cause and effect to Detective Witwer (Colin Farrell). All of this is an allusion to the famous claim of philosopher David Hume (1711-1776), that by observing billiard balls you can actually demonstrate that cause and effect does not exist but is merely a habitually created fiction of the mind.

When Anderton and the team are at the Marks residence, the front door is open. From the exterior the door is hinged on the left and open on the right. The next shot is from inside the home and the door is open on the right when it should be open on the left. See more »
The cast list during the closing credits is divided into the following categories: Pre-Crime, FBI, Pre-Cog Chamber, The Greenhouse, Department of Containment, Pre-Crime Witenesses, Anderton's Family, Victims & Killers, The Mall, The Chase, Operating Room & Tenement Bldg., The Ballroom, And (miscellaneous cast members), Commercials, & Stunts See more »
In the theatrical version, Dr. Solomon Eddie shouts something in Swedish into the bathroom at Greta. The subtitle reads something like, "Wipe your ass and get out here." This line is absent in the VHS and DVD versions of the film. See more »
For me, it is a special film. Out of any explanation. An experience. Andva fascinating movie. For the presence of Max van Sydow and his performance. For Tom Cruise job. For the delicacy and precision of story. And for many others details. And, sure, for the admirable made of a drama with deep roots in near reality.
