      Stephen T An excellent and exciting visual portrayal of the future cast over the novel of a legendary Sci-fi writer in Phillip K. Dick. Excellent casting and a stellar performance by Tom Cruise. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/23/24 Full Review Niccolo N Philip K. Dick's short story has a more bitter ending and is more poignant, but, anyway, this is Spielberg at his best. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/22/24 Full Review Alec C Are we the deciders of our fate or are we trapped by them? John Anderton works Pre-Crime, a police division that can deduce the crimes of murderers before they even commit it, which leads to John being hunted for a murder of a person he doesn't even know, so he's forced to go on the run to find a way to subvert his destiny and find the truth. Stylish and slick, this sci-fi mystery manages to leave us paranoid that if we are not capable of avoiding our fate, how can we know what is the right choice?! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Ava S Minority Report manages to mix a plethora of genres to create a satisfying and action-packed thriller with an expansive and grimy futuristic world that tackles the concept of free will. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/24 Full Review Matthew D Steven Spielberg predicts the future way back in 2002! Spielberg's direction is peerless as usual with beautiful shots, thrilling action, and groundbreaking ideas. The science fiction elements are pretty clever and forward thinking in Minority Report. This is a movie that blends Spielberg's usual theme of fatherhood with the ethics of law enforcement. Spielberg forces the audience to contend with the futuristic concept of pre-crime: arresting people before they intend to commit a crime. It's a fascinating concept executed in fantastic fashion by Spielberg's high tech machinery and fresh ideas. Tom Cruise is the star of the show with his highly thoughtful approach to police work. We get to see Cruise take on parenthood, arrests, comedy, investigation, and action sequences alike. He is very compelling as the lead. Furthermore, I enjoyed Colin Farrell and Max von Sydow's supporting performances a great deal. Their play their official positions with a stern authority. I think the acting in Minority Report is quite underrated. Even Samantha Morton plays the astonished precognitive Agatha with a curious fear that is always believable. Lastly, Peter Stormare delivers a hilarious cameo role with a fervent madness. On the other hand, a few of the smaller roles all feel too campy and simplistic against the excellent main cast. You see odd characters popping up here and there that do not really fit the hyper serious tone of Minority Report. Additionally, the run time feels perhaps a half hour too long. You are always engaged in the story until Cruise is offset by some of the weirder side characters who feel like time wasters. Minority Report is approximately 2 and a half hours long, but it feels like 3 hours due to too many extraneous chase scenes and eccentric supporting figures. Overall, Minority Report is very intriguing with its mystery and investigation. Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell shine. The writing is quite realistic and the futuristic advancements are grounded. Some of the special effects look dated and it is bloated, but Minority Report is a great film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/24 Full Review Adi 1 Minority Report is a creative wonder in every aspect. It has an innovative story and well created visuals topped by a great performance from Tom Cruise. Although I feel the film loses itself in the second act but definitely a must see for sci-fi fans. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader Minority Report does offer a few issues to ponder, and given the mindlessness of most summer action specials, it’s something of an intellectual feast, even if it’s all hors d’oeuvres. Rated: 3/4 Aug 10, 2022 Full Review Victoria Luxford BBC.com Certainly one of Tom Cruise’s best (films), and I think one of Steven Spielberg’s best too…. So much fun to watch, a really intriguing thriller. Rated: 5/5 Jul 29, 2022 Full Review Wendy Ide Times (UK) It’s colder and more calculating than much of Spielberg’s oeuvre, and is all the better for it. Jul 14, 2022 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand This is a portrait of a society that has passively bartered away civil rights and left much of the population in squalor, living in slums and surviving in the cracks of a surveillance society that has no use for citizens it can’t monetize. Feb 4, 2023 Full Review Noah Berlatsky Everything is Horrible (Substack) Maybe the precogs could foresee a worse filmmaker than Steven Spielberg sometime in the far future, but right now, as far as I’m concerned, he’s got no challengers. Jan 31, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The visionary quality of Minority Report's cinematic world is matched solely by its endless influence on both film and real-world technology since its release. Rated: 4/4 Mar 20, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
