Product Description

Tom Cruise stars as a cop pursued by his own colleagues in this Steven Spielberg-directed adaptation of the short story by sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick ('Blade Runner', 'Total Recall'). John Anderton (Cruise) works for the Pre-Crime Division of the Washington DC police force, a special unit which acts on information obtained from mutants with pre-cognitive abilities in order to prevent murders before they have been committed. When the mutants have visions of a murder carried out by Anderton himself, the cop goes on the run and attempts to prove his own future-innocence. But no matter how hard he tries, Anderton cannot stay hidden from the city's advanced surveillance systems for long.

From Amazon.co.uk

Many catalogue movies are increasingly being shovelled onto the Blu-ray format with the bare minimum of care and attention, in the hope of picking up a few extra quid. Minority Report, whilst not a radical overhaul of the DVD special edition, thankfully treads a different path.

Much of that is down to a terrific collection of behind the scenes extra features, that retrospectively dig into the look and feel of the movie. It’s interesting material to work through. But it’s the film that’s stood the test of time very well, and Minority Report is arguably one of director Steven Spielberg’s finest movies of the past decade or two.

Taking a Philip K Dick story as its inspiration, Minority Report stars Tom Cruise as an officer in Pre-Crime, a department in the future that stops crime before it’s happened. Yet when his name appears as a future criminal, he has to get to the bottom of just what’s happening.

This all sets the scene for a fabulously entertaining futuristic thriller, that only stumbles slightly as it heads to the end. Spielberg delivers some excellent action sequences, and the look and feel of the movie is simply outstanding. That’s enhanced too by the excellent high definition transfer the film has benefited from, which will both test out any quality 1080p display, and also give a solid speaker set-up a real workout.

Minority Report is, then, one of the best catalogue Blu-ray releases of recent times, and a welcome chance to revisit a film that’s otherwise in danger of being lost in the Spielberg back-catalogue. And it’s a movie that simply deserves a lot more than that… --Jon Foster

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!
