BEST MOVIE EVER!!!

This movie is really cool, but also very violent. The main character uses a drug, (only to forget something bad that happened,). And there is a very brief but graphic sex scene, and a NASTY operation. He says some bad words such as, a s, he l, and one f ck.

BEST MOVIEI I HAVE EVER SEEN!!! yet.

This movie is amazing, powerful, and great! but it has alot of bad content. 1.murdure, fistfights, drownings, shootings, all realistic, bloody and grapic, the pre-cogs are very creepy, also a grusome oporation (implied)in witch the charecter has his eyes replace, 2 scuicides. 2.the movie opens with a pasionet kiss, a women cheats on her husband, a virtuial reality chamber takes you to a strip club (only seen for a brife second). 3.the main charecter abuses drugs (they are never clasified as drugs but you can tell that they are). 4. the main charecter steals, kills and breaks and enters to prove his inocence. so this is a SPECTACULAR movie for teens 13 and up.

"Minority Report" - Parental and Artistic Review.

Sexual Content: Opening scenes intertwine snippets of passionate kissing and a brutal stabbing. (It turns out that a man discovers his wife bedding someone else). A holographic recording of John's ex-wife shows her wearing a nightie and enticing him to come to bed. While mechanical police drones (known as spyders) search an apartment building, the camera flits overhead, spying on people in their homes (one couple is having sex). Another hologram shows a man's sexual fantasy (the images are brief and distorted, but the sexual connotations are clear). Suggestive dialogue includes a reference to getting "laid" and even references the desires a man has for his cousin. 5.8 out of 10. Violent/Gory Content: Disturbing, disjointed images of future murders play across police video screens. Drownings. Stabbings. Shootings. Strangulations. There's also a lot of violence while John runs from his former colleagues. Personal jetpacks allows for high-speed, airborne combat, raising the pursuit's stakes. John slams one of the cops against a wall and puts a gun to his chin (later he breaks a mirror with another man's head and points a gun at him, too). Stealing an officer's "sick stick," John immediately uses it, causing the victim to projectile vomit. Shockwave guns throw men across rooms, but futuristic methods of violence quickly give way to old-fashioned fisticuffs. At least two men are shot in the chest (blood spurts and oozes). There is also a suicide. 7.1 out of 10. Profanity: 1 "f" word, about 9 "s" words and at least 7 "hells," 5 "damns," 1 "ass," 1 use of "laid" and 1 use of "buggered." 2 middle fingers are given (1 on each hand). Religious exclamations include at least: 6 uses of "Oh, God," 2 each of "Jesus Christ" and "My God," and 1 use each of "For Christ's sake," "Jesus," "Oh, my God" and "God." 5.2 out of 10. Substance Use: John is addicted to a futuristic substance called "clarity." He breathes in the drug using what looks like a modified asthma inhaler. While his doping is illegal and frowned on by officers who find out about it, John never comes clean and the issue is dropped without resolution. Also, there's a futuristic ad shown for beer, and alcohol is consumed by various characters. 4.9 out of 10. Conclusion: Minority Report is one of Steven Spielberg's many masterpieces. It has a great story, good script, fantastic performances, well-developed characters and amazing visual effects. I highly recommend this film and I give it 8.3 out of 10.

It's not graphic like csm says

There are some graphic images, including disturbing parts, but the camera cuts make it brief and THIS MOVIE IS PG-13 PEOPLE. The OFFICIAL MPAAA rating: PG-13 for violence, brief language, sexuality and drug content.

Great Movie Not G

This movie is the best. Tom Cruise is amazing. The story is amazing. There are a lot more things to say about this movie. It is my favorite movie ever. I think it is better than the matrix. There are brutal,graphic,and violent murders. John gets his eyes removed. At one point they are in a bag and you see them. There is also language s*** is used a fair amount of times. F*** is used once. Not for people who worry about getting murdered.

The minority report review

Minority Report is a Sci-fi Movie about a Cop for the PreCrime division in 2056 where the police can now stop a crime before it happens using the three kids who can see into the future, this is a result of parents who were drug addicts. the movie opens up with the Hero John Anderton studying a crime that is about to happen and then goes to stop it, the crime is a women having sex with a other man after already being married and they are so he busy not even to realize that her husband is watching them, but when he is about to kill them the cops catch him.this movie is full of Fights, murders, drugs,and bad word including f*ck, a*s and more, and there is also a gross operation where his eyes are taken out and replaced with new ones and it is also difficult to understand it is full of ups and downs so i rate it 15 and+

Fascinating Film

This film is amazingly done. It is violent in the way that there are murders and stopped murders. There is a really gross doctor that does a gross operation. I watched it and skipped the operation. It was a great film. I am a huge fan of Spielberg and he has created another wonderfully interesting film.

Minority Report is a well directed film with a complicated storyline.

The Positives are that the storyline is really good (the execution of the premise was really good as well as the movie blended Sci-Fi and mystery seamlessly), the directing is very good (As usual, Steven Spielberg did a wonderful job), The messages are thought-provoking (Free Will and Determinism are key themes), the pace was good, the twists were surprising, the special effects were actually good, Tom Cruise gave a solid performance, and the set pieces were used properly. The only negatives are that some of the acting isn’t that good (Samantha Morton wasn’t that good as Agatha Lively but then again, it isn’t all her fault. She plays a strange character) and there are certain disturbing elements (When Tom Cruises character had to get new eyeballs was a very unsettling scene). I would recommend this film. -Language consists of about 30 profanities(one f-word and about 10 s-words are included) and their is some disturbing violence)A guy has to get his eyeballs removed. It's off-screen but you see his eyeballs later on)

Minority Report is a dystopian and depressing believable memorizing film.

Minority Report takes place in the dystopian future of the District of Columbia, United States capital. Right from the start, you know this movie definitely gives off the "neo-noir" vibe, mixing dreamy blue and green colours with a heavenly, yet depressing contrast. This film's filmography is amazing and very artistic, giving off an almost surreal feeling. Tom Cruise yet again gives a very convincing and deep performance, even though his character isn't in the greatest mentality, you're still able to easily relate with him. The story and overall plot is complex, though systematically explains it through the clever use of a highly-detailed and analytical semi-antagonist who tries to track the protagonist down throughout the film. Some scenes are slightly revolting, though the film is not in any case disturbing in it's mild violence. The overall feel of the film is quite depressing, but gives a major sense of atmosphere and immersion into the fictional believable world. In short, Minority Report will leave you with a dreamy memorizing feeling and the satisfaction of watching an introverted-based film.

Smart, taut, thriller is much more intense than the matrix.

This movie opens with a man murduring his wifethat was cheating on him, Large amounts of blood are show, and a man is shown being drowned, however its all blurry and very hard to see, more relying on the terrifying screams and quick flashes of him stabbing characters. Murders like these Are shown being rewound, fast forwarded, and paused when the precrime agents are trying to peice it together. Its not for the sqeumish, or weak stomached, becasue all of those images are shown repeatadly. If you ask me this should have been rated R and the matrix rated PG-13. Much stronger language and violence than the matrix. But this movie is great and really worth checking out.

Minority Report Review

A heart-pounding experience that makes you think and contains a gallery of characters that will haunt your nightmares for years to come. This film is such a virtuoso high-wire act, daring so much, achieving it with such grace and skill. Minority Report reminds us why we go to the movies in the first place.

Too Much Murder

This movie is good for older kids. I'm 12 and I saw it recently and it was caked with violence and people being murdered over and over and over again. The movie is also depressing I recommend it for ages 13+

Not that great, iffy for mature teenagers.

This movie was extreme, and it wasn't that great at all. It contains a ton of violence, sex, and drugs for a PG-13 movie. There is a lot of disturbing content and some blood, a very brief sex scene, a fantasy sex scene, and at least two scenes of couples preparing for sex. The main character uses illegal drugs a lot. There is a lot of violence. There is also some language, of course.

A Strong PG-13 movie

This movie was pretty good. There was lots (i mean a lot) of violence in it such as fights with futuristic guns and punching. There were also some pretty violent visions of murders before they happen. One of the visions i thought was very disturbing. It depicted a woman being drowned. There was a bit of sex in it but not to much. I think its a good movie for older audiences, but not for kids.

Fine for teenagers, a fun ride into the future!!

I really enjoyed this movie, however, I have seen it multiple times and still cannot stand to watch the eyeball operation! Beware: if you are squeamish about vomit, there is a highly visible scene where the character vomits during a fight. Overall it is quite entertaining and the special effects are amazing!
