Starring Tom Cruise, Max Von Sydow, Collin Farrell, Samantha Morton, Jessica Harper, Tim Blake Nelson, Peter Stormare
Based on a Phillip K. Dick short story, this adaptation stars Tom Cruise as a cop in an experimental division known as pre-crime. They stop murders before they occur thanks to premonitions from “precogs,” three gifted young people that can share their visions. After the precogs tag him with a future murder, one that features a man he has never even heard of, Cruise is on the run, searching for clues to how and why he’s been set up. Spectacular blockbuster entertainment, visionary sci-fi film, and a classic neo-noir. There are two or three sequences that rank among Spielberg’s best, and Cruise gives a gritty performance as a cop hanging on by a thread.
