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
From the very beginning, Steven Spielberg wanted Greta (Dr. Eddie's assistant) to sing something by ABBA, but Peter Stormare suggested that she should sing something else, to make the scene more absurd. The Swedish children's song "Små grodorna" ("The Small Frogs") was chosen by Stormare. This song is usually sung on Midsummer Eve parties in Sweden. See more »
While Anderton is jogging through the street, an ad for pre-crime is playing, during which a future-victim states "he was going to rape me." However, later when Witwer is asking the pre-crime crew questions they discuss how the pre-cogs cannot see rape because of "the nature of murder". If the attacker were only going to rape her, the pre-cogs would not have predicted it, but if the attacker had planned to kill her after the rape, the rape would most likely have been seen as part of the pre-cogs' vision.

Listen, I'll tell you what I'll do. First thing Monday, I'll look over the Witwer evidence. And I'll have Gideon run the Containment files, see if anyone drowned a woman by the name of - what did you say her name was?

... but I never said she drowned.

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?
