Minority Report (2002): An Underrated Gem


Minority Report Movie Poster




Steven Spielberg







In a future where a special police unit is able to arrest murderers before they commit their crimes, an officer from that unit is himself accused of a future murder.


My review:


The first decade of the 21st century has seen a remarkable number of science-fiction motion pictures that challenged and intrigued audiences, chiefly among them being Minority Report. Directed by the visionary Steven Spielberg, considered one of cinema's greatest directors of all time, the film is a thought-provoking piece that explores a world in which criminals are caught before they even think of committing the crime. Spielberg's casting of Tom Cruise as the lead character, Chief John Anderton, is spot-on with Cruise able to give one of his best performances. But, it is the film's greater look at how science will affect lives and crime that interests me the most. Spielberg uses the dynamic action and beautiful visuals to comment on a possible future in which technology plays a much bigger part than it should, resulting in disrupted and damaged lives. Working with his longtime collaborator Janusz Kaminski, Spielberg also gives the film a unique look that grips our attention from the first to last frame. Simply put, Minority Report is a smart and intelligent underrated gem of a movie that blends action, suspense, and science-fiction into a remarkable blend, giving viewers a film they will not soon forget.


Outstanding performances:


  • Tom Cruise (as Chief John Anderton)
  • Max von Sydow (as Director Lamar Burgess)
