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 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 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
During the scenes that show Anderton manipulating the PreCogs' visions of future crimes, the music in the background is Franz Schubert's "Symphony #8 in B Minor"--more commonly known as the "Unfinished" symphony. 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.
