Storyline Heading
It is the nation’s most advanced crime force, a perfect system. And no one works harder for Pre-Crime than its top man, Chief John Anderton. As the head of the unit, Anderton is the first to see the images as they flow from the liquid suspension chamber where the Pre-Cogs dream of murder. This time, the killer’s identity is clear – John Anderton will murder a total stranger in less than 36 hours.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Sci-Fi Thriller - A fairly quick paced and sometimes suspenseful story of a framed man searching for the truth. There's quite a bit story between the action scenes, but I believe most action fans will not be disappointed. While the idea of having the ability to stop crimes before they happen is very far-fetched, it's done in a matter that, to me at least, made it quite believable. This is obviously a very wild story that will likely only appeal to those with an open mind for this sort of thing.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "The late Stanley Kubrick, whose spirit has led a restless Steven Spielberg in midlife to rewardingly dark, hard crannies of dystopia and art, presides over the elusive futuristic thriller Minority Report like a ghostly, unpaid technical adviser.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Excellent "Those in the mood for the action and adrenaline rush of a typical summer blockbuster will find something to their taste here. Yet there are richer rewards for viewers who are willing to engage their brains. Anyone who wants to think through the mysteries and paradoxes presented herein will discover a multi-course cinematic buffet that can keep the gray matter occupied for days to come.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Excellent "At a time when movies think they have to choose between action and ideas, Steven Spielberg's "Minority Report" is a triumph--a film that works on our minds and our emotions. It is a thriller and a human story, a movie of ideas that's also a whodunit. Here is a master filmmaker at the top of his form, working with a star, Tom Cruise, who generates complex human feelings even while playing an action hero.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Excellent "Scott Frank and Jon Cohen contribute to a breathless 140-minute pace with a no-flab script packed with all kinds of surprises. Humor constantly materializes in the strangest contexts, including some of the funniest product placement scenes ever. It's hard to imagine wanting anything more — even from a Cruise-Spielberg matchup.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These opinions are quite good, but lower than I predicted. I'm really surprised to see the somewhat high number of opinions below "Very Good." I didn't think there would be many at all.

From the negative comments given, it appears the lower opinions were due to the movie being "too long," "hard to follow," "too creepy/weird" and several didn't like the ending. It sounds like these negative comments may have come from those who don't like sci-fi movies.

If you're a sci-fi fan, I would say your chances of enjoying "Minority Report" are very high. If you're not a fan, I still believe MOST of you will enjoy it, at least to some degree, but I would suggest that you read everything we offer for this movie before deciding to see it.

Cinema Review Opinion: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
A very entertaining futuristic thriller. It's thought provoking, intelligent, suspenseful and exciting. This is one movie where the critics are correct.

I predict it will receive very high opinions. Most will likely be in the "Excellent" to "Fantastic" range. There may a few low opinions from those expecting more action, because this is not an action film. There is some great action, but there isn't a lot of it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It is the nation's most advanced crime force, a perfect system. And no one works harder for Pre-Crime than its top man, Chief John Anderton (Tom Cruise). Destroyed by a tragic loss, Anderton has thrown all of his passion into a system that could potentially spare thousands of people from the tragedy he lived through. Six years later, the coming vote to take it national has only fueled his conviction that Pre-Crime works.

Anderton has no reason to doubt it ... until he becomes its #1 suspect.

As the head of the unit, Anderton is the first to see the images as they flow from the liquid suspension chamber where the Pre-Cogs dream of murder. The scene is unfamiliar, the faces unknown to him, but this time, the killer's identity is clear – John Anderton will murder a total stranger in less than 36 hours.

Now, with his own unit tracking his every move, led by his rival, Danny Witwer (Colin Farrell), Anderton must go below the radar of the state-of-the-art automated city, where every step you take is monitored, every car you drive can be controlled by someone else, and your own eyes tell the world who you are, what you want and where you're going. Because you can't hide, everybody runs.

With no way to defend himself against the charge of Pre-Crime, John must trace the roots of what brought him here, and uncover the truth behind the question he has spent the past six years working to eliminate: Is it possible for the Pre-Cogs to be wrong?
