Throwback Thursday-Minority Report (2002)

When it comes to police work, the ability to prevent crime by being one step ahead of the criminal may not only dictate the speed in which the criminal is caught, but will also help in preventing future crimes.

In the 2002 movie, Minority Report, John Anderton (Tom Cruise) is the chief of an elite police squad in Washington DC in the year 2054. Their squad is able to prevent crime by seeing into the future and stopping crime before it happens. But when Anderton is accused of a future murder, he is determined to prove that he is innocent.

I am not a huge fan of Tom Cruise, but this movie is not bad. There is enough tension in the narrative to keep the audience engaged. This movie also reminds me, at least, that a) human beings cannot control fate (as much as we would like to) and that technology will always have one or two flaws.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
