This film is part of the rewarding trifecta of Speilberg's most specialist period of contemporary future sci-fi type Genre films, & as such is perhaps one of his more cinematically derived creative films in kinetic style & tone. Tom Cruise is a fitting Genre protagonist in this film, somewhere between action hero and character actor, resulting in a good Genre fit to the film, & with Collin Farrell providing the right kind of depth as his character's initial main antagonist.
This film has similarities to the Matrix trilogy, as well as it's sharing same time period of release, one being to an extent, it's elaborate story of characters taking place without their recognition of the explicit telling in the general circumstance driving the story.
Speilberg has alot of heart in his films but there is less heavy handedness here to the style, with a fair amount of Genre moral ambivalence in the film's premise as it's plot unwinds.
Speilberg's flair for set-pieces & aesthetics in these 'type' of sci-fi Genre films, always seem to work really well, & this film is no exception. While not as good a film as the tantalizingly close to total Genre awesomeness of War of the Worlds, Minority Report is a better fully realized story.
Any film one likes to keep, usually best to have special edition, and this one is worthwhile for it's extras to that too.
"Minority Report", Directed by Steven Spielberg, is an amazing portrayal of author Philip K. Dick's short story. Unlike "A.I. Artificial Intelligence" A tremendous look into the future where murder is stopped before it happens. Tom Cruise, "John Anderton" plays the part of a cop from the department of Precrime. The department of Precrime, is run by viewing the visions from the Precognitives. The "Precogs" can see the vision of a future murder waiting to happen. John Anderton "Tom Cruise" analyzes the visions by knowing Location, victim, perpetrator, time and date of the crime.
Eventually John Anderton finds himself being a part of a murder to a man he has never meat before in his life. John ends up going on the run from Precrime as they attempt to arrest John, due to the fact of the visions of the Precogs being so perfect.
John ends up meeting up with the man, and kills him; by accident though. John also ends up finding a flaw in the system or what Philip K. Dick calls, the Minority Report, where the system is said to be so perfect that unbeknownst to the operators that the system is infact human; and when it's human there's a flaw no matter how perfect the system is.
Spielberg wanted this movie to be like "A.I Artificial Intelligence" but unlike Ai's warm color hue to the movie, Spielberg made the color hue for "Minority Report" to be a span of cooler colors using blues and whites. Spielberg wanted these colors to give a much colder prospect, since Minority Report has a much colder and darker story to the evolution of technology, and the flaws that it possesses.
Remember something very clear that, this movie does possess language, and one small brief 20 second scene with sexual content. Spielberg normally does not allow any of that content in his films unless it's absolutely necessary. In this case it indeed was. During the search for John Anderton, Precrime ends up finding out his current location at an apartment complex. Some of the officers unleash "Spiders" which are tiny little robots that search the building the for the suspect by scanning their eyes. The spiders ends up going into each and every room, scanning all of the eyes of the individuals of the building. Eventually the spiders come across a couple on a bed. Anyway, Spielberg wanted this particular scene in the movie, to make a point in the movie, where technology had evolved to the point where it can invade our personal lives and affairs, and that we will never be able to hide from it; if it continues to evolve the way it is.
The movie is in a nutshell a great action movie, with a great story, and a great message.
"In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king."
LESSON: always inspect EVERY disc as it arrives. (I noticed what I thought was a crack in the case, didn't worry about it - turns out it was a cut right thru to the disc inside. THANKS AGAIN for throwing away my money, I guess I should watch EVERY movie when it arrives, just to make sure it isn't defective??!!!?
VERY DISSAPOINTED CUSTOMER!
