Review

Our Score
This masterfully sleek vision of the future from director Steven Spielberg is an awesome mix of skewed science fiction, twisty Hitchcock-style thrills, stunning blue-grey tinged photography and outstanding design, featuring a fantastic array of cool equipment, gadgets and RoboCop-type applications. Set in 2054, when police use precognitive mutants to detect homicides before they're committed, the plot sees top "Pre-cop" Tom Cruise identified as a future killer and forced to go on the run to discover why he's been set up and by whom. Well-judged commercial action requirements dovetail flawlessly with ingenious sophistication as Spielberg hurtles with artful swiftness through one spectacularly mounted suspense sequence after another - none better than the snooping robot spiders scuttling through a tenement slum to identify Cruise via his coded eyeballs. Adroitly realised by Spielberg to amaze and rivet in turn, this is what sci-fi cinema should always be about but rarely is - mind-boggling images and a literate, witty script skilfully working together in perfect harmony to create a world of unnerving wonder. It's absolutely terrific stuff - Blade Runner finally has a serious rival as the best Philip K Dick screen adaptation.

Summary

Cop John Anderton is forced to go on the run when a supposedly infallible trio of psychics foretell he is about to kill a man he has never heard of. Convinced their prediction is false, he kidnaps one of the so-called precogs to prove his innocence - and stumbles across a complex conspiracy. Steven Spielberg's futuristic thriller, starring Tom Cruise, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton and Max von Sydow.
