A really fast futuristic action thriller; it is about a police unit called pre-crime which predicts crimes before they actually occur.
It¿s a great movie to fill an evening with, it has everything... Read more, you will be on the edge of your seat. If you enjoyed this one you¿ll like ¿Paycheck¿ with Ben Affleck, or ¿The 6th Day¿ and ¿Total Recall¿ with Arnold Swarzenegger.
This is about free will versus determinism. Tom Cruise ends up shooting the person he has been predicted to kill, but by accident - a cop-out in my opinion.
Also the plot hinges on evil bad guy... Read more scientists hiding information which does not further their cause, which dilutes the question of whether knowledge about future criminal behaviour should be used to take out the future criminals before they have done anything - a scary but important question.
I liked the visuals in this film, but otherwise I thought it was soft-edged and milky.
The special effects are much what you would expect from a special effects director - pretty good. The SF plot encourages you to read Philip K. Dick but the overlong film loses interest in the SF after... Read more an hour and it becomes a boring actioner in which Cruise seems more comfortable.
Interesting story line. Kept us interested all the way.
No idea what this movie was about. Lost me in the first 5 minutes. Too much time spent on flashing lights and whirligigs. Not for the over 50's.
toofar in the future ,if at all,to interest me, did not lie it
Boring. Predictable. Pretentious. Uninspired. Too long. Could have been an interesting study of free will vs. predetermination and exploring technology's place in society, but it's just another Hollywoodland... Read more production-line action flick of no consequence.
Terrific, glossy Spielberg thriller with Tom Cruise at his intense best and Colin Farrell showing us why he became a huge star himself. It's original, really exciting and beautifully put together by... Read more one of the cinemas slickest directors. Lois Smith is wonderful in a small role. Big screens needed.
A great movie. I don't like sci-fi stuff but this had me watching till the end.
This was a very futuristic movie, with good special effects of travel in the future, but enough human interest to not be pure science fiction.
