From Amazon.co.uk

Full of flawed characters and shot in grainy de-saturated colours, Steven Spielberg's Minority Report is futuristic film noir with a far-fetched B-movie plot that's so feverishly presented the audience never gets a chance to ponder its many improbabilities. Based on a short story by Philip K Dick, Minority Report is set in the Orwellian near-future of 2054, where a trio of genetically modified "pre-cogs" warn of murders before they happen. In a sci-fi twist on the classic Hitchcockian wrong man scenario, Detective John Anderton (Tom Cruise) is the zealous precrime cop who is himself revealed as a future-killer. Plot twists and red herrings drive the action forward and complications abound, not least Anderton's crippling emotional state, his drug habit, his avuncular-yet-sinister boss (Max Von Sydow), and the ambitious FBI agent Witwer (Colin Farrell) snapping at his heels. Though the film toys with the notion of free will in a deterministic universe, this is not so much a movie of grand ideas as forward-looking ones. Its depiction of a near-future filled with personalised advertising and intrusive security devices that relentlessly violate the right of anonymity is disturbingly believable. Ultimately, though, it's a chase movie and the innovative set-piece sequences reveal Spielberg's flair for staging action. As with A.I.. before it, there's a nagging feeling that the all-too-neat resolution is a Spielbergian touch too far: the movie could satisfactorily have ended several minutes earlier. Though this is superior SF from one of Hollywood's greatest craftsmen, it would have been more in the spirit of Philip K Dick to leave a few tantalisingly untidy plot threads dangling. --Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars Minor Blu-Ray Report 11 Jun 2010
By Mr. Blu
Format:Blu-ray
I never saw this film on first release and got to know it only now as a BD release. The first thing to say is that the sound quality is spectacular. Whether listening to the futuristic weapons and flying devices, the wild action sequences, or just about anything you remember from the film, there is a good chance that you will be very impressed by the power and clarity of this HD soundtrack. The localisation of surround effects and the power chanelled to your subwoofer for Low Frequency Effects are also truly stunning.

What you will think of the video quality depends on your attitude to grain. Like "Saving Private Ryan" this is a film where Spielberg cultivated a grainy, almost grimy look at times, and HD makes grain more apparent! Having said that, I thought the film looked fantastic and accepted the grain, the somewhat reduced colours and occasionally unsettling contrasts as part of Spielberg's dystopic vision. None of this prevents the film from demonstrating exceptional sharpness in close-ups and giving a real sense of depth and plasticity to the image in mid-range shots and close-ups. There is no lack of detail, and that is the good side of grain. Remove the grain with DNR and you lose detail.

The film itself is packed with great perfomers, particularly Max von Sydow and Colin Farrell. It is a long-ish film but does not outstay its welcome, spinning a fascinating story with a perfect tempo and a generous smattering of twists and turns. The ethical issues it touches on are most compelling, even if they are in the end somewhat ducked by the nature of the film's resolution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minority Report - Steelbook UK Edition Blu-ray 10 Feb 2011
By Andrew
Format:Blu-ray
Packaging
- Loving the steelbook cover design, at least it was nicer a lot than normal UK edition or US edition which I found it look ugly. UK edition was release by Fox where the US edition was release by Paramount.
- Include 5 exclusive art cards, well printed and nice.
- BD is region Free which cover 3 regions A, B & C.
- Additional Digital Copy disc is included for iPod/iPhone or Windows Media format, you need a valid UK iTunes account before you can redeem on it for iPod/iPhone format.

Story
- For me this is by far the greatest movie act by Tom Cruise before he gone mad on Scientology.
- One of the best Steven Spielberg directing film.

Extra Features
- All new features is in HD quality and well done, I specifically loving the new added "The Future According to Steven Spielberg".
- "Minority Report: Commercials of the Future" is another nonsense but fun extra features, it did well like World of Precrime is really exist. ha! ha
- Old DVD features is included in SD quality as well in two categories "2002 features" & "archive".

Picture Quality
- Extremely well transfer in BD, even though this UK release is only 27GB for film itself & include the extra features in same disc which is by far means lower bit rate use than in US edition as film itself already hock up to 47GB and extra features all in 2nd disc.
- From web review, it seems not a big different in PQ at both conversion which you hardly notice the differences thus UK edition even eliminate a top & bottom "tramline" issue in US release. Well done Fox.
Slightly grain in acceptable level and best suite to the film.
- The color in overall has been change compare with what I seen previously on theater or DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful high tech futuristic thriller 8 April 2013
By Mr. G. Robinson VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Based on a short story by Philp K Dick, Minority Report is a tremendously exciting futuristic thriller from Steven Spielberg.

John Anderson (Cruise) a detective at Pre Crime (police who can see crimes happening before they actually happen) believes totally in the system and has no problem locking people up who haven't actually committed a crime, having been caught before the actual crime takes place. His world is turned upside down when he sees himself commit murder. He runs and becomes an outlaw.

With philosophical overtones about free will and the nature of freedom in a modern complex society Spielberg teases out a superb thriller full of tension, excitement and just knockout performances from Cruise, Colin Farrell and Max Von Sydow. The future world in which our story takes place is very recognisable, it's not too far in the future and as a result feels contemporary rather than science fiction. In my book that really cements the film in a reality that gives the drama an edge that may have been lost otherwise.

As you would expect there is plenty of thrilling action and the story itself is very satisfying. The special effects are superb as you would expect, but they do not overwhelm as sometimes great effects can. Shot with a certain look, the film sometimes looks over bleached or overexposed. This was a deliberate decision on the part of the filmmakers and was used again later on War of the Worlds, however with less satisfying results.

Minority Report is tremendous fun and never lags. At 139 minutes it's quite long but the action and story never let up. Great fun!

2.0 out of 5 stars Black slow confused plot.
Not one of the best Cruise films. Plot is slow and confusing and the total night filming, were they saving on lighting?, means that many bits are hard to make out. Not a best buy.
