(nl) wrote: Minority Report is directed by Steven Spielberg, and it stars Tom Cruise, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, and Max Von Sydow in a cyberpunk action mystery adaptation of The Minority Report by Philip K. Dick about the Chief of PreCrime, which is a department where the police goes to get the criminals from actually doing something bad in the future based on 3 psychics, and when it showed the chief's vision of when he murders someone, John Anderton (Tom Cruise) runs away from PreCrime and he tries to prove his innocence as he doesn't know the person that he is going to kill in a day or 2. I was pretty excited to see this again as I've seen this and liked it, but it had been years ago, and I wanted to go back to this. So after going to rent it and see it, Minority Report is one of the most inventive films that I've seen from Steven Spielberg's career. Tom Cruise did a fantastic job in this that I think it's one of his best performance. The special effects look amazing to this day, and it brings the world they created some life to it, even some of the effects that they created are actually used as actual things in the recent times. The writing by Scott Frank and Jon Cohen is very well written that brought in a lot of thought provoking moments. The action scenes are a lot of fun to watch, and the characters are very three-dimensional, especially since the main hero isn't perfect as he has done stuff that are not good. I know people have a problem with the ending being inconsistent to the overall film, and I'll admit it does look and feel different from the film, I was honestly fine with it, and some theories on it, made it seem that it was intended to be that way to be faithful to the adaptation that people might not realize. Minority Report is a fantastic film that it is one of Steven Spielberg's best films.

Visuals are decent although nothing too mindboggling. Van Damme still can't act, but this a better effort from him than most of his acting career. I really liked Ron Silver as the villain in the film. He was cunning and calculating. Other than that it was hard to ignore the numerous plot holes, horrendous dialog and a slight lack of Van Damme's traditional martial art fighting as he trades it in for weapons and a time traveling device. Like I said it's a watchable film, which is rare since there are only a few Van Damme movies that are considered "watchable".
