Storyline

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. Written by Soumitra

Trivia

This film shows technology that was not yet widely available at the time it came out, but is at the time of this writing, July 2015. Gesture control, eye and fingerprint recognition are some of the things available to the public now shown in the film. Even touch screen (capacitative touch) was introduced on a large scale through the first Apple iPhones in 2007. See more »

Goofs

Burgess successfully covered up Anne Lively's murder by deleting the alternate vision--the Minority Report. However, as the real murder was committed by Burgess himself, his name should have come out on the ball as the perpetrator as well, just as it does at the end of the film. See more »

PLOT HOLES
22 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

*May contain mild spoliers, please click away*

1. If the Pre-Cogs can only see murders, how can Agatha tell about the umbrella, the homeless man, and the balloon man in the scene where the cops chase them through the mall?

2. If Anderton is a murder suspect, wouldn't they take his retina ID off the register to get into the Temple?

3. Early on in the movie we see the balls are released early in the sequence of events. If this is true, then wouldn't the balls with `Lamar Burgess' written on them drop in the fake echo?

4. How can Lamar fake a cerebral output with such detail about who would be in the room and at what time?

5. In a world where people are ID'd wherever they go and everything is on computers, why couldn't the PreCrime have made it to Leo Crow's hotel room in time when his name was on a computerized registry? They know the location of all the merry go rounds, yet they can't find Crow's name in a registry?
