#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In the year 2054 A.D. crime is virtually eliminated from Washington D.C. thanks to an elite law enforcing squad “Precrime”. They use three gifted humans (called “Pre-Cogs”) with special powers to see into the future and predict crimes beforehand. John Anderton heads Precrime and believes the system’s flawlessness steadfastly. However one day the Pre-Cogs predict that Anderton will commit a murder himself in the next 36 hours. Worse, Anderton doesn’t even know the victim. He decides to get to the mystery’s core by finding out the ‘minority report’ which means the prediction of the female Pre-Cog Agatha that “might” tell a different story and prove Anderton innocent.
Plot: John Anderton is a top ‘Precrime’ cop in the late-21st century, when technology can predict crimes before they’re committed. But Anderton becomes the quarry when another investigator targets him for a murder charge.

Spielberg does Tech-Noir!
The year is 2054 and the murder rate in Washington is zero, the reason? Three Pre-Cognitives (each named after a literary great) whose combined abilities witness murders before they actually occur. Apparently faultless, it’s then something of a surprise to Pre-Crime chief John Anderton (Tom Cruise) when the Pre-Cogs predict he is to murder a man named Leo Crow. Forced to go on the run, and haunted by a family tragedy, Anderton must evade the system he so perfectly executed himself. Can he find a flaw? Or is he actually about to commit a murder?
Everybody Runs! That was the tag line that accompanied the explosive trailer for Steven Spielberg’s, Tom Cruise starrer, Minority Report. This marketing tool indicated that the great bearded one had adapted from the Phillip K Dick short story and created an action monster? He hadn’t, he had in fact created something far far better than popcorn fodder.
Minority Report was the next project for Spielberg following the equally dark and intriguing AI: Artificial Intelligence, both films serving to note that Spielberg was capable of thought provoking science fiction outside of the standard crowd pleasers that many critics love to decry. In fact, it’s arguable that Spielberg may have hit his creative peak with Minority Report, for the messages and crawling dystopian bleakness on show paint a picture not so much as a future far away in our lives, but of one we live in now. Big thematic points of reference dot themselves throughout the piece. Such as the changing of eye balls, or that in these post 9/11 years we yearn, and always will, to be safer.
Here in this bleached shadowy world, a world of metallic tones and visual stings (ace cinematographer Janusz Kaminski on duty), we are safe under Pre-Crime. Yet still it’s a world without soul, it has no heart, it’s almost as if inhuman in itself, suggesting that the World’s problems are not easily vanquished by technology – a total sacrifice of the World’s inhabitant’s souls. Spielberg of course is well served by the supreme professionals he has at his disposal, he has also managed to garner a great performance from Tom Cruise, something that critic and fan favourite directors have not managed to do previously. Believable grief, action work as strong as ever, it is however with his ability to imbue a tortured film noir protagonist where Cruise excels the most.
Alongside Cruise and operating with great impact are Samantha Morton as Pre-Cog Agatha and Max Von Sydow, the latter adding that touch of experienced know how needed for his particularly important character. The odd casting choice appeared to be Colin Farrell as the meddling, almost vindictive Danny Witwer, but he plays well off of Cruise, this even if he veers dangerously close to comic book villainy at times (check out a holy smoke Batman scene). What action there is is first rate, from a jet back pack pursuit, to car jumping heroics, the sequences are crafted with Spielberg’s deft eye for an action sequence. While the sick sticks (yes you read right) metal spiders and a brilliant Peter Stormare cameo should hopefully have you squirming and grinning in equal measure.
Which brings us to the finale, an ending that may not be a complete surprise (yet it still doesn’t cop-out in context to Anderton’s tragedy), but things are rounded off in true classic noir tradition, where it closes down a thinking man’s tech-noir. Superb. 9/10
Works more on the strength of Spielberg than of Cruise.
_Final rating:★★★ – I personally recommend you give it a go._
What must film makers do? This was GOOD – believe nothing else.
I think some people just write reviews for sites like this because they like to complain. I actually find myself wondering if all the gripers here have actually seen Minority Report, as I just have, because I have to say that is one of the most gripping and involving movies I have seen in quite a while.
The content is amazing – all the little details that put the audience firmly in the middle of the 21st century. Personally I can absolutely believe that technology will have advanced in the kind of ways portrayed in the film within 50 years. Just look back 50 years into the past and you should be able to see why. The lives of everyday people in the film, where they are scanned and advertised ‘at’ all day every day, apart from an excuse for product placement (and why not?), certainly make you think about a world where ‘they’ know your every move (a future towards which we are already hurtling with some speed).
The style is amazing – why the wooden balls? Because they’re cool is why. I like to think that as we progress as a civilization we will keep a few such elegant idiosyncrasies knocking around. The plastic, chrome and glass sets, objects and architecture all looked clean and functional and the way that they suck the color out of a scene worked well and gave the film a distinctive palette. The cars are the best looking vehicles I have ever seen in a film. I have only one criticism here – why do all the computer displays look like Macs? Surely a touch unrealistic 😉
The story is amazing – complicated, yes, but also engrossing, exciting and scary. There are elements here that are only hinted at, but which give the plot a depth increasingly lacking in modern action flicks. And it asks the kind of questions about morality, justice, exploitation and society that’ll keep you thinking for much longer that the film’s two and some hours.
The direction and performances are amazing – the pre-visualization on this movie must have been a nightmare and yet all the incredible special effects blend perfectly into a visual style that is completely natural and assured, as might be expected from Spielberg and Michael Kahn. There are, of course, numerous references and homages to the work of Stanley Kubrick, which have given a hint of the edge and flair of ‘Clockwork Orange’ or ‘2001’. I hope it will continue to be a big influence on Spielberg.
Cruise delivers a first class performance as usual, but the discovery of this film is Samantha Morton as Agatha. Who saw the film and didn’t share her terror and vulnerability? Little touches such as the way she clings to Cruise, almost like a baby’s reflex, make her a character you immediately care about, innocent and tragic.
Anyway, if that’s not enough to recommend the film, then you’ll probably never find another one you like again. But if you need another reason, go to see it just for another fantastic soundtrack from the master, John Williams.
Full marks, five stars, a must see several times and buy the DVD movie.
Slow to Start, Electric until the End
Whilst slow to begin with, Minority Report builds into an absolutely epic sci-fi adventure. The premise is interesting for sure, but to begin with the now-dated effects and backdrop hinder what would ultimately become an excellent plot. As it progresses it’s complex but explained well without spelling anything out to you. The twists come thick and fast towards the end and after what can only be described as the first climax, your attention is really grabbed, you’re kept guessing until the end.
Acting cannot be complained about for anyone, and Cruise was the perfect casting for the lead. Again, the only thing that is needed is patience, as the story breaks out of what initially just looks like ‘Future Mission Impossible’.
The only thing which takes you out of the moment a little is the CGI/effects. It’s always difficult to get any level of accuracy when predicting the future in film, but still the cops look a bit taccy and daft. Everything is that little bit too perfect which feels like a 1970s imagining, and relies too heavily on CGI.
However, as far as adaptations of Philip K Dick’s work go, this is right up there with Blade Runner, and for me it exceeds it.
