We went to see Minority Report last night. It’s good to see some serious sci-fi out there. True, it’s not Blade Runner, but it’s really good. The visual effects are stunning (if a little gross at times). Tom Cruise is excellent as John Anderton, the rogue cop who is set up to murder his son’s kidnapper. And I really loved Lois Smith’s scene as the inventor of pre-crime, Dr. Iris Hineman.
As usual, it’s got that Spielberg “must have a happy ending” touch. There are a couple of places where it could have ended with great effect–including just before the wrap-up narrative.
