Minority Report

Minority Report Poster Tom Cruise

Rating: 2.75 of 5 ★★¾☆☆ 

I read this in a Variety review I think, and it really resonated for me.

“For all its qualities, however, Minority Report may in the long run lack the resonance of Blade Runner and certainly 2001, because it is more prosaic than poetic, more concerned with narrative progress, precise predictions and legalistic issues than larger notions of good and evil, fate and the grand scheme of things.

The theological note intriguingly struck by Witwer early on is unfortunately never sounded again, and while the film’s rootedness in a future “reality” is compelling, the emphasis put on this could play a part in preventing the picture from entirely transcending its genre.”
