About this movie

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 as the future killer of a man he's never met he is forced to become a fugitive from his own colleagues as he tries to uncover the mystery of the victim-to-be's identity. When he kidnaps Agatha (Samantha Morton) one of the precogs he begins to formulate a theory about a possible frame-up from within his own department. Directed by Steven Spielberg who hired a team of futurists to devise the film's numerous technologically advanced gadgets Minority Report co-stars Colin Farrell Max von Sydow and Neal McDonough.

Steven Spielberg's Sci-Fi masterpiece, based on the short story by science fiction writer Philip K. Dick, "Minority Report" is a vision of a future, set in the year 2054, where homicide can be predicted by three "precognatives",who have, a disturbing series of visions of murders,that take place at a future time...And suspects are arrested before the murders even take place...When Washington D.C. Police Chief John Anderton, "Precrime" Supervisor, becomes a suspect, and ultimately a perpetrator of the "Precogs"visions, Anderton goes on the run, resorting to desperate measures, to disguise his identity, and maintain his perceived innocence...The technology in this future, can be quite alarming, compared to our current law enforcement practices...But this futuristic murder/ mystery thriller,does have it's basis on Spielberg's employment, of futurist's predictions of tech, that they envisioned would possibly be used, 50 years in the future...

I am not a Tom Cruise fan, but this movie has enough style and gadgetry to stand regardless of who the lead actor is. In addition it's based on a Philip K Dick novel which always works for me when done correctly.
