Minority Report

I'm not about to put this one among the ranks of Spielberg's elite, but this is certainly among Steve's more thought provoking efforts. Tom Cruise stars as a Precrime officer (one who arrests people for crimes that will be committed) who finds that he himself is being charged with a precrime. Will he run? "They all run," claims Cruise. So he does. I thought the entire synopsis of the movie was quite dumb. (Catatonic psychics predicting the future? Come on!) However, the movie gains huge points as it successfully tackles relevant issues and makes nearly profound comments on current society. A point for Spielberg whose previous sci-fi effort, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, was relative crap. That said, I doubt I will see this film again.
