Minority Report review

Film description

In a nutshell:

In Washington, D.C., in the year 2054, murder has been eliminated. The system is perfect, but for Detective John Anderton it just became a perfect nightmare.


You can't hide. Get ready to run!


John Anderton: 'Mr. Marks, by mandate of the District of Columbia Precrime Division, I'm placing you under arrest for the future murder of Sarah Marks and Donald Dubin that was to take place today, April 22 at 0800 hours and four minutes.'

Dr. Iris Henimen: 'Sometimes, in order to see the light, you have to risk the dark.'

Agatha: 'Murder!'


In 2054, Washington, D.C. Police use three pre-cogniscient siblings to identify murder suspects before they have chance to kill.

Heading up a special 'Pre-Crime' unit, Detective John Anderton (Tom Cruise) uses advanced techniques and equipment to track down these pre-killers and bring them to justice.

Thanks to this system, there hasn't been a murder in Washington in 6 years.

But when Anderton is himself identified as a future murderer, he must race against his own specialized police department and time itself to prove his innocence of a crime he has yet to commit.

Directed by Steven Speilberg and based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, Minority Report also stars Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton and Max Von Sydow.

Better On Blu Ray:

Steven Spielberg offers a dark vision of the future where felons are taken down by PreCrime cops before they even commit their crime.

Which is all well and good until Tom Cruise’s precog crusader finds himself on the run... Bursting with ink-black shadows, gleaming surfaces and hurtling action, Minority Report was built for

Blu-ray – watch it and you’ll feel like Cruise after he’s chased down his eyeball in one gloriously grotesque sequence and popped it back in; suddenly, everything is clear.

Dig into the copious extras on the two-disc set, many exclusive to Blu-ray, and you’ll learn all about PreCrime in Washington in 2054, and how Spielberg invited experts to a Californian hotel to thrash out an entirely plausible 2054. The future is now, and it's Beetter on Blu Ray.
