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
An advertisement for the film was shown during the TV3 broadcast of Tom Cruise's earlier film Mission: Impossible (1996) in New Zealand in 2002. The film had a similar plot to Minority Report (2002), which Ethan Hunt (Cruise) an agent working for the IM-F government agency whom goes on the run after a mission in Prague is sabotaged and his team is killed and he is framed as a mole inside IM-F and he sets out to find the real mole and to clear his name. In this film, John Anderton (Cruise) the chief of the elite PreCrime police is forced to go on the run, when Agatha (Samantha Morton) predicts that he will kill Leo Crow (Mike Binder) and sets out to stop the crime from happening.

[as he is given a revolver]
Revolvers, like this one, were given to the generals at the end of the civil war by their troops. The chambers were loaded with 5 gold plated bullets to symbolize the end of the destruction and death that set the country apart for 5 years. Now, with Precrime going national, I think we all can look towards a time where none of us will have to discharge another firearm ever again.
[the people applaud him]
Oh, enjoy yourselves, enjoy yourselves. That's an order.

The distributor and production company credits look like they are underwater, which ties into the opening shot of Agatha in the tank. See more »
1. If the Pre-Cogs can only see murders, how can Agatha tell about the umbrella, the homeless man, and the balloon man in the scene where the cops chase them through the mall?
2. If Anderton is a murder suspect, wouldn't they take his retina ID off the register to get into the Temple?
3. Early on in the movie we see the balls are released early in the sequence of events. If this is true, then wouldn't the balls with `Lamar Burgess' written on them drop in the fake echo?
4. How can Lamar fake a cerebral output with such detail about who would be in the room and at what time?
5. In a world where people are ID'd wherever they go and everything is on computers, why couldn't the PreCrime have made it to Leo Crow's hotel room in time when his name was on a computerized registry? They know the location of all the merry go rounds, yet they can't find Crow's name in a registry?
