Based on a short story by the late Philip K. Dick, this science fiction-thriller reflects the writer's familiar preoccupation with themes of concealed identity and mind control. Tom Cruise stars as John Anderton, a Washington, D.C. detective in the year 2054. Anderton works for "Precrime," a special unit of the police department that arrests murderers before they have committed the actual crime. Precrime bases its work on the visions of three psychics or "precogs" whose prophecies of future events are never in error. When Anderton discovers that he has been identified… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The worst thing about the new Steven Spielberg picture is the title, Minority Report. The best thing about it is pretty much everything else."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"For its stunning visuals and standout performances, Minority Report -- or at least the first three-fourths of it -- might just be the best movie so far this year."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"This is a grown-up movie by men who've suddenly realised that their inner Peter Pans have deserted them."
‑ , Total Film
"[Minority Report] takes themes from Blade Runner, Total Recall and especially the little seen Gary Fleder-directed Impostor and stirs them up into an absorbing thriller."
‑ Mike Goodridge, Screen International
"Violent sci-fi detective movie isn't for kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Though his movie wraps challenging ideas and ingenious visual conceits in a futurist film-noir style, it's pretentious, didactic and intentionally but mercilessly bleak."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Ferociously intense, furiously kinetic, it's expressionist film noir science fiction that, like all good sci-fi, peers into the future to shed light on the present."
‑ David Ansen, Newsweek
"Too much of Minority Report is facile, albeit at a very high level."
‑ Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun
"The movie's combination of old and new influences energizes its believable futuristic elements."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Vigorously entertaining and tremendously weird, "Minority Report" feels like a vintage Action Comics adventure spiked with acid. It's an uncommonly melancholy blockbuster about demons ruthlessly determining our fate even as we relentlessly flee them."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"High-concept science-fiction escapades often try to impose new ways of seeing, but Spielberg seems intent on blistering our optic nerves."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"A highly effective thriller whose futuristic panoramas rival those of A.I. Artificial Intelligence."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"This masterfully sleek vision of the future from director Steven Spielberg is an awesome mix of skewed science fiction, twisty Hitchcock-style thrills, stunning blue-grey tinged photography and outstanding design."
‑ Alan Jones, Radio Times
"Not simply Steven Spielberg's most prescient sci-fi work but also one of his finest."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"One of the few films I've seen so far this year that I would recommend and it is one to see on the big screen."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
