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.

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.

Murder is virtually eliminated, thanks to an elite law enforcing squad.

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.
