A cop is framed for murder... in the future!

It's a clever plot, with a lot of memorable moments scattered throughout. But I never really got into it. Despite good science fiction, it's ultimately more of an action movie (with not particularly good action). I think Tom Cruise has a contract stipulation that he has to spend a given amount of every movie in free fall.

This is a collection of nine short stories. They're all unique and original. Concepts and ideas are not repeated much. My favorites were "Imposter," and "Second Variety." His stories are great because you can't tell how they're going to end for sure. ( )

From the box: Superstar Tom Cruise give his "most potent action performance" (David Ansen, Newsweek) in director Steven Spielberg's Minority Report.

For six years, Washington D.C. has been murder-free thanks to astounding technology which identifies killers before they commit their crimes. But when the chief of the Precrime Unit (Cruise) is himself accused of a future murder, he has just 36 hours to discover who set him up - or he'll fall victim to the "perfect" system he helped create. It's a mind-blowing action thriller that's such an achievement it "reminds us why we go to the movies in the first place" Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times).

2002/2 hrs. 26 minutes/PG-13
