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.
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

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.Read more ›
After we see how the pre-con system works, we find that John sees himself killing a man he doesn't know in a premeditated crime. This sets off a long series of twisted events that make this a good sci-fi mystery crime thriller drama. Yes, everything but zombies.
This is a film made in 2002, but considering our advances in micro-drone technology and revelations about the NSA, it questions what lost of freedom are people willing to fore go on their civil liberties to be safe in their home from any murderer.
The film is a bit long, but relevant to today.
Parental Guide: 1 f-bomb. Sex. No nudity.
They use three gifted humans("Pre-Cogs") with psychic powers to see into the future and predict crimes beforehand.
John Anderton heads the unit and believes in the system's flawlessness. But the Pre-Cogs predict that Anderton will commit a murder himself in the next 36 hours.
But Anderton doesn't even know the victim. He decides to get to the mystery's core by finding out the titular report which means the prediction of the female Pre-Cog Agatha that might tell a different story and prove Anderton innocent.
After the opening scene, you begin to realise that this isn't your normal Spielberg summer movie. In fact, next to War Of The Worlds, this is his darkest blockbuster.
From the dystopian setting, which is ironic considering the whole concept, to the bleached film stock, it isn't the most joyous summer movie, but it's a lot of fun, if it is twenty minutes too long.
As soon as Andertons name is etched on to the ball, it doesn't let up until he meets Crowe, who subliminally is his maker.
As with the majority of Spielberg summer films, nuclear family, or the concept of the nuclear family, is a big part of the film, and the Director gets the loss of Andertons son to be a pivotal part of the film.
Cruise excels as the desperate father, and he isn't the character you'd expect him to be. Here he is an addict, desperate, but at the same time,exudes an air of wanting to give up at certain points.
Standout scenes are the chase that ends with a yoga position, the search for Anderton with the spiders, and the jet pack sequence.Read more ›
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!
