“If there’s a flaw, it’s human. It always is.”
Minority Report’s themes and premise are really the extent of its potential. Though it’s science fiction, the movie still feels alien amongst Spielberg’s other works. And while the ending might seem a little too convenient, it at least manages to avoid being predictable. The rest of the runtime doesn’t fare so well, however, as it feels like a drag through events that offer little true suspense for the viewer with pacing that takes its toll well before the second act is finished. It doesn’t disqualify the movie from being a potential, worthwhile viewing, but its interest value is disappointingly weak.
