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

Matt Damon and Dutch actor Yorick van Wageningen were considered for the role of Danny Witwer. Van Wageningen had to drop out because he had been unable to secure a working permit when filming began. See more »

Goofs

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.

However, this is not a goof, because we see this next shot from the backside of a transparent computer monitor (which Jad The Technician is looking at from the correct side), which means that what we as audience members are seeing is actually a mirror-reversed image. In the direct scenes from the interior of the Marks' home, the front door is always hinged on the right-hand side (and opening inward on the left), which is consistent with the exterior view.

Quotes

[viewing the crime scene of Leo Crow's murder]
Danny Witwer: I worked homicide before federal. This is what we call an orgy of evidence. You know how many orgies I had as a homicide cop?
Officer Fletcher: How many?
Danny Witwer: None.
[crouches down and looks back up]
Danny Witwer: This was all arranged.

Alternate Versions

For the U.S. theatrical release, the 20th Century Fox logo appeared before the Dreamworks logo at the beginning of the film, and the poster credits said, "Twentieth Century Fox and Dreamworks Pictures present." Since the U.S. version's home video/DVD rights are owned by Dreamworks, the Dreamworks logo at the beginning of the movie appears before the 20th Century Fox logo, and the back of the box's cover art says, "Dreamworks Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox present."

Underrated & A Film To Think About
13 February 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This gets high marks for being an involving film that, despite a long length of almost two- and-a-half hours, keeps ones interest all the way. Being a Stephen Spielberg-directed film, it's no surprise that the photography is first-rate. This is nice-looking movie. Tom Cruise also was very good in here, not the obnoxious character he sometimes portrays (or did more often in his younger days.).

The film is a good mixture of action and suspense. Only the one chase scene was overdone with Rambo-like mentality of the good guys not getting hit when they should, and vice- versa.

The subject matter is interesting, too: what would do you (or the police) had very reliable information on crimes that were about to be committed, that you could prevent things from happening before they actually did?

I recognized two people in here who went on shortly thereafter to become recognizable in TV series: Kathryn Morris ("Cold Case") and Neal McDonough ("Boomtown"). Add Colin Farrell, Max Von Sydow, Samantha Morton and you have an interesting cast. I am of the opinion that this is one of Spielberg's underrated gems.
