Consensus: Thought-provoking and visceral, Steven Spielberg successfully combines high concept ideas and high octane action in this fast and febrile sci-fi thriller.

The worst thing about the new Steven Spielberg picture is the title, Minority Report. The best thing about it is pretty much everything else.

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.

If less poetic than AI, Minority Report is much more confidently directed, with a firmer sense of its maker's own urge to entertain and stimulate rather than bemuse.

Wall Street Journal

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.

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.

Even if he belabors the ending and can't resist tempering the darkness with a strained ray of hopefulness, Minority Report is a document that proves Spielberg among the top ranks in a minority of film geniuses.

High-concept science-fiction escapades often try to impose new ways of seeing, but Spielberg seems intent on blistering our optic nerves.

A highly effective thriller whose futuristic panoramas rival those of A.I. Artificial Intelligence.

This is a grown-up movie by men who've suddenly realised that their inner Peter Pans have deserted them.
