Minority Report (2002)
This modern day Sci-Fi classic was built on the recipe of Steven Spielberg, Philip K. Dick and Tom Cruise, so it was hard to believe this wasn’t ever going to be anything other than incredible. The film focuses on Dick’s familiar preoccupation with themes of concealed identity and mind control. Cruise plays John Anderton, a Washington D.C. detective in the year 2054, who works for special unit “Precrime” that arrests murderers before they have committed the actual crime based on the visions of three psychics whose prophecies of future events are never in error.
When Anderton discovers that he has been identified as the future killer of a man he’s never met, he is forced to become a fugitive from his own colleagues as he tries to uncover the mystery of the victim-to-be’s identity. The film is bursting with interesting ideas on where modern society is heading, with a powerful moral message at its heart, all of which is powered by the film’s star led performance.
