So what is the plot exactly? Well, dear reader, take comfort in knowing I will not spoil the movie for you. In the year 2054, Americans are subjected to Gap clothing stores (that scan your retina and hard-sell khakis by your name) as well as USA Today newspapers with animated front page covers that update in real-time. Tom Cruise is John Anderton, Washington D.C.'s top-cop in the experimental pre-crime unit that seeks out and eliminates would-be murderers through the use of precognitive beings that are able to sense murders shortly before they happen. The premise sounds wonderful until John discovers he's about to murder someone he has never met. This is the story on the surface yet it is not the story. I fear many will avoid this movie because this is all they will expect. I will stump for this movie because it's not just an action-thriller and it's not just a thinking-man's science-fiction movie. What lies beneath the story is much deeper and darker.
You see, even in knowing the future, Mr. Anderton is confronted with an awful dilemma. How can he prevent himself from killing the person he is supposed to murder if he has never seen the person he is supposed to kill or the location the murder is supposed to take place? Is the future preordained or does man create his own destiny?Read more ›
It is the year 2054 and the film takes place in Washington D. C. For the past several years, murder is all but a thing of the past. With the advent of the Pre Crime division, where three pre-cogs, see a murder before it happens. Tom Cruise plays the chief of the Pre Crimes division, leading the troops in the apprehension of these criminals who haven't, yet are about to commit murder. His character is plagued by the murder of his son, six years prior and is suffering the emotional damage from that murder. The pre-cogs, foretell a murder and as Tom Cruise is working his amazing futuristic computer to discover who the murderer is, he finds that it is he who is the murderer. And so goes the film as he makes his way out of the Pre Crime building and starts on his quest to figure out who has set him up.

Went back to see this because of the series on TV now. It has a lot more futuristic stuff in it then the series.Published 5 days ago by pgball
Really good movie. Has twists that you don't see coming. It is a great warning about the dangers of a police state, and giving up liberty for security. Great acting.Published 7 days ago by Amazon Customer
One of the best movies I've seen. For me, it had everything; pace, great acting, and allowed me to suspend my disbelief among several other things I look for in a movie. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Real Time

It was one of the best parts of the movie. It was very futuristic yet realistic at the same time. They really did the movie justice.

textures are too cartoony. not that the two disc dvd was any better. would rather go with the teaser poster art with the blindfolded anderton.

Does anyone know if the BD copy will include all of the previous DVD bonus features, or will we need to keep our old copies, too?
