Minority Report is a different film for Spielberg - a dark neo-noir with twists and turns and dark themes that deal with fate and predetermination. The visuals are stunning and Tom Cruise anchors what is an adrenaline-packed cat and mouse game through a dystopian universe.

Spielberg spins an intriguing concept amidst the creatively exciting chases and fights. It brings up a battle between free will and determination, all while we watch a tight and fast paced murder mystery plot unfold. Fantastic set-pieces, special effects, and a multi layered story to ponder. This is one supremely entertaining sci-fi action romp.

I found the story to be rather week and not particularly well executed.

“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.

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 …

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. …
