Critics reviews

Spielberg has said his films always have to arrive someplace, often that place of arrival is a rendition of home. In a flimsily hopeful ending, Minority Report reaffirms free choice, and the family bond is restored, but the pro forma conclusion lacks conviction and is at odds with the propulsive energy of the sci-fi fantasy that has preceded it.

A fleet, discursive meditation on free will, Minority Report provocatively doubles as a film about the act of filmmaking: what is Cruise’s cop if not a film editor, scouring through someone else’s disconnected recorded images in order to reconstruct them into a coherent narrative? And if Minority Report functions as a dramatization of its maker’s own methods at the time, then of course it had to be shot and edited on film.

Derived from a Philip K. Dick story that’s more about action than nuanced commentary, it doesn’t have a vision that incorporates a poetics but functions as a grand entertainment; part of its central plan is to always give you more to look at than you can possibly take in.
