Minority Report (2002)



Reviews and Comments

Minority Report is a perfect example of why I love movies. Here is a great work by a great director at the top of his form. From the first minute to the final scene, it is filled with brilliance and innovation. It's a futuristic mystery with contemporary relevance; an action film with ideas; a visual extravaganza that has a devilishly winding plot. Released right in the thick of summer, when computer generated imagery is showcased in set pieces, here is a film that actually uses them to tell a story: we can have our cake and eat it too. Both artistically and technically, Minority Report is a grand achievement, resulting in what is sure to be one of the most entertaining films of the year.
