Minority Report (2002)


In a future where a special police unit is able to arrest murderers before they commit their crimes, an officer from that unit is himself accused of a future murder. (IMDb)
The futuristic setting gets a little cheesy at points (see the magic glove and the weirdly bad quality hologram-video) and its dull colouring stale, but the future-predicting police premise is undoubtedly cool, and it produces a terrific twisting pseudo-murder mystery plot (with good turns from Farrell and Cruise) and some intriguing discussion on predestination vs. free will and the ethics of “pre-crime” (although the morality of keeping captive the three fortune-tellers is left unaddressed).
7.5/10 (Really Good)
