Perfect thriller

“Sometimes in order to see the light, you have to risk the dark”, a quote mentioned in the movie, reveals the fact that the science and technology has developed to such extent that even mistakes can occur and every one living has to face the dark first. Minority Report directed by Steven Spielberg (fame for A.I, Jurassic Park), alongside written by Jon Cohen which is adapted from a short story by Philip K. Dick. The movie casts Tom Cruise accompanied with Colin Firth. There are many British actors in the flick, supporting or rejecting cruise.

The concept is all about a future where criminals are caught, before they commit the crime. The so called Prescribe division developed in Columbia city has evidenced the best results. Chief John Anderton (Tom cruise) is an expert in finding the m...

"Minority Report" by Yojimbo

An experimental police unit that uses precognitive "seers" to prevent murders from being committed before they happen has to hunt one of its own when its commander appears in one of the visions gunning down a complete stranger. Steven Spielberg's pedigree shines through in yet another sci-fi based upon a tale by Philip K. Dick, containing many of his familiar ingredients, including time paradox, the concept of free will versus destiny and the ethics and morality of technology. These heady concepts are interwoven with Hollywood hi-tec imagery and blockbuster set pieces to produce a flashy, mainstream action film with far more intelligence than most. It's true that the film gets a little bogged down from time to time as Spielberg gets a little too carried away with his own effects budget an...

Minority Report review

The second viewing of this film have influenced my rating. The setting is 2054 and its main protagonist is the chief of PreCrime in Washington DC, Captain John Anderton (Tom Cruise). Three “precogs” are humans with special gifts who can predict future precrimes. A representative of the Department of Justice Danny Witwer (Colin Farrell) was tasked to audit the operations of the PreCrime unit. One of the pre-cogs envisions John to kill a man named Leo Crow. John asks assistance from one of the lead researchers for PreCrime technology Dr. Iris Hineman (Lois Smith), and abducts the most talented of the 3 precogs, Agatha (Samantha Morton) to help him find the answers. PreCrime's Director Lamar Burgress (Max von Sydow) is being awarded because of the achievements of the PreCrime unit. Th...

A Report from the Minority

"Minority Report" is one of those stylish, self-conscious, intricate science fiction events that generate plenty of discussions about its subject matter after it finishes. Themes such as the right to exercise your own free will, the decadence of privacy and the importance of family as the base for a balanced life in society are approached. The setting is futuristic. The overall tone of people's lives in 2054 is hopelessly murky. Director Steven Spielberg uses his tremendous skill as a prodigious technical director to bring jaw-dropping action sequences to life here, not to mention his dead-on ability to emulate the tense atmosphere of classic film noir, now blended with what can be described as a touch of realistic fantasy.

The screenplay is mundane at best, though, for there are a cou...

Minority Report

One of Spielberg's modern classics. I'm not going to delve in the philosophy of this film because I can summarize it in one word: fascinating. This is more than a movie that relies on special effects. It also relies on imagination and creativity. I have several highlights regarding the film: the spyders, the chase in the car factory, and when Tom Cruise's character finally got his hands on one of the psychics. The performances are all equally great, which made this science fiction tale all the more convincing and involving. In a way, this movie reminded me of "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence" and "Blade Runner" because of its dark undertones. If the director had been different, this movie might've been a mess. If you want eye-popping special effects with a great story and stunning human ima...
