Minority Report is a well made sci-fi mystery thriller that I would recommend to teens. This movie not only has some mature content, but may be confusing and/or boring for younger audiences.
The movie follows John Anderton (Tom Cruise), the chief of a new Precrime unit. In Precrime, psychic beings call "pre-cogs" predict the details of several future murders. In the movie, it is predicted that Anderton himself will murder a man he doesn't even know. He believes that he is being framed by Danny Witwer(Colin Farell), a young homicide detective questioning every aspect of the system. In order to prove his innocence he runs from the people he once called friends, and into the streets of Washington D.C.
Although, some of the content in the movie is only appropriate for teens to view. There are some violent scenes, instances of sexuality, and some strong language. The amount of blood in the movie is moderate, but is still there. For example, there is an eye surgery in the movie in which the characters eyes are completely removed and replaced. Although the surgery is not fully shown, the patient is given a bag with his two bloody eye balls after the surgery. The rest of the violence is disturbing and a bit intense. There are three murders predicted in the entire movie. One is a shooting, the other a stabbing, and one a drowning. The shooting results in some blood on the bullet wound and the stabbing results in bloody bedsheets. The drowning is much more intense then any other scene in the movie because it is slow and the victim tries to scream. That sums the violence shown in the movie. Throughout the course of the movie there are some references to rape and some brief sexual content. For example, in a night, you can see someone getting a lap dance from holographic stripper. When cops are searching a building, a couple having sex ( below shoulders covered by sheets) is shown for a few seconds. There is also a more prolonged sequence in which two people (fully clothed) get into a bed while kissing and moaning. Finally, there are several uses of s*it and one use of f*ck in the movie.
Minority Report is an excellent movie that takes a high spot on my favorite movies list. Out of every element in the movie, the plot is the best. The movie has a plot that was greatly thought out. It has many twists and thrilling moments that made me want more. The 2054 setting is brilliantly portrayed and the everything makes sense. The only thing that I didn't like was the first 40 minutes, which could have been shortened.
Overall, Minority Report is fantastic film that would be enjoyed by many teens and adults alike.
