    The worst thing about the new Steven Spielberg picture is the title, Minority Report. The best thing about it is pretty much everything else.

    Name user

    Though his movie wraps challenging ideas and ingenious visual conceits in a futurist film-noir style, it's pretentious, didactic and intentionally but mercilessly bleak.

    Name user

    High-concept science-fiction escapades often try to impose new ways of seeing, but Spielberg seems intent on blistering our optic nerves.

    Name user

    For its stunning visuals and standout performances, Minority Report -- or at least the first three-fourths of it -- might just be the best movie so far this year.

    Name user

    Ferociously intense, furiously kinetic, it's expressionist film noir science fiction that, like all good sci-fi, peers into the future to shed light on the present.

    Name user

    A highly effective thriller whose futuristic panoramas rival those of A.I. Artificial Intelligence.

    3/4
    Name user

    The fashionably fussy, funky veneer may convince some that the film's serious, but it's finally another chase pic, murky in detail, muddled in ideology and strangely predictable in dramatic thrust.

    Name user

    The director creates a vision of the future that's richly detailed and fascinating.

    My own minority report is that it stinks.

    Name user

    Final Report: Good, yes; great, no.

    Name user

    Shallow, noisy and pretentious.

    Name user

    A movie of haunting images and mindless thrills.

    Name user

    While it strays from Dick's narrative, it nails the basic premise and some quintessential Dickian motifs.

    Name user

    A classy, chilly quasi-Hitchcockian affair.

    4/5
    Name user

    Has a good time with the gadgetry and gizmos of the future.

    4/5
    Name user

    The most intelligently fun movie Spielberg has ever made.

    5/5
    Name user

    Minority Report won't go down as one of Spielberg's greatest films -- there are a few gaping holes in the plot, and some awkward attempts at humor. But it's a wonderfully chilly thrill ride while it lasts.

    Name user

    This is the kind of pure entertainment that, in its fullness and generosity, feels almost classic.

    4/4
    Name user

    While the film, deftly imagined by screenwriters Scott Frank and Jon Cohen, doesn't entirely hold together, its dark, twisty chases and tricky puzzles have much more going for them than Spielberg's last foray onto similar turf.

    3/4
    Name user

    Spielberg's visual imagination has never been more splendid.

    5/5
    Name user

    A fast-moving, entertaining, thought-provoking film that leaves you feeling vaguely empty because it might have been a classic.

    3/4
    Name user

    The movie is a joy to watch.

    Name user

    The film reaches toward greatness but fails because it is too perfect a projection of its creator. Nevertheless, we should celebrate it, because this makes it -- flaws and all -- more valuable than 1,000 soulless, committee-hatched flicks.

    Name user

    Cold and scattered, Minority Report commands interest almost solely as an exercise in gorgeous visuals. That's not vintage Spielberg and that, finally, is minimally satisfying.

    1/4
    Name user

    Minority Report isn't Spielberg's best film by a long laser shot. But it may be an even bolder statement than his mostly brilliant yet roundly rejected A.I. Artificial Intelligence.

    3/4
    Name user

    Spielberg's realization of a near-future America is masterful. This makes Minority Report necessary viewing for sci-fi fans, as the film has some of the best special effects ever.

    Name user

    Cruise will never be a master thespian, but there's no one better at putting across the charisma of control, and the opening sequence of Report is an astonishingly fluid demonstration of his gifts.

    3/4
    Name user

    A terrifically entertaining specimen of Spielbergian sci-fi.

    Name user

    Minority Report is more humdrum than horrible. It isn't futuristic film noir; it's just everyday film beige.

    Name user

    It's hard to imagine wanting anything more -- even from a Cruise-Spielberg matchup.

    4/4
    Name user

    This film is such a virtuoso high-wire act, daring so much, achieving it with such grace and skill.

    4/4
    Name user

    A heart-pounding experience that makes you think and contains a gallery of characters that will haunt your nightmares for years to come.

    4/4
    Name user

    Breathtaking and disturbing.

    Name user

    The film is magnificently creepy, a calculated bad dream that stays with you like the best of Roger Corman.

    4/5
    Name user

    Some may quibble that the 144-minute length accommodates at least one too many endings. But such quibbling will diminish in view of the film's overall impact.

    Gives us a lot to chew on, but not all of it has been properly digested.

    Name user

    This one blends the best aspects of the mature Spielberg's often warring personality.

    4/4
    Name user

    A slam-dunk hit.

    Name user

    A film that can get you high on the sheer magic and exhilaration of making movies.

    4/4
    Name user

    Spielberg and Cruise are back to top form.

    B+
    Name user

    Rivals some of Spielberg's top adventure/science fiction epics, such as Close Encounters and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    4/4
    Name user

    There's something auspicious, and daring, too, about the artistic instinct that pushes a majority-oriented director like Steven Spielberg to follow A.I. with this challenging report so liable to unnerve the majority.

    B
    Name user

    The film's success is in line with what American films historically have done best, which is to excitingly tell a strong story with high style and just enough substance.

    Name user

    Spielberg's sharpest, brawniest, most bustling entertainment since Raiders of the Lost Ark and the finest of the season's action epics.

    Name user

    A masterful work infused with beautiful and haunting visuals, outstanding performances from Tom Cruise and a gifted supporting cast -- and a story that challenges the mind and engages the spirit.

    Name user

    One of [Spielberg's] most compelling and entertaining films ever.
