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.
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.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word, 10 S-words, a few milder ones. SEX/NUDITY: One quick scene of a couple having sex. No nudity. VIOLENCE: Some shootings and beatings. Nothing graphic. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some drug use by the main character to forget his troubles. ACTION: There are some outstanding chase scenes. COMEDY: Quite a bit of humor for this type of movie.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
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.
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
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?
