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.

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!

Comparitive to the Matrix

This was a great movie. It was somewhat similar to the Matrix in a few ways, but not as violent and just as fun. There wasn't anything really bad here, and the movie kept you on your seat almost all the way through. Thankfully it wasn't a Vanilla Sky 2.

Don't bother

Unless you feel Tom Cruise can do no wrong, avoid this movie. It wasn't bad. It just wasn't good.

Interesting watch--love Spielberg

The violence in this movie was pretty grotesque and the world is gritty and unappetizing. the first 3/4 of the movie is pretty standard action flik, but its the last 1/4 that makes this movie incredibly worth it. the ending is an unsuspected twist and the message and meaning we are left with is breathtaking. Spielberg is, as usual, knockout. The creativity of this movie is a lot of fun. If you're a fan of dystopia-like movies and books or enjoy ones that make you think, this is definitely worth it.

Amazing, but intense, sci-fi flick

This was indeed a great film. The violence is graphic, and there is some heavy stuff about the guy and his kid. But other than that, the movie is really amazing.

Great Movie!!!

The violence is pretty brutal at the begining but later on it lessens. Except for the eyeball thing. Kinda scary but most any kid 11 and up can watch it. Lots of commercialism if thats a problem. He goes into a futuristic gap.
