Synopsis:
In the world of The Minority Report, Commissioner John Anderton is the one to thank for the lack of crime. He is the originator of the Precrime System, which uses precogs--people with the power to see into the future--to identify criminals before they can do any harm. Unfortunately for Anderton, his precogs perceive him as the next criminal.
Reaction:
Very intriguing. The logistics of the minority report works quite differently from that used in the Tom Cruise movie, but it's still quite a fascinating story.
Trivia:
Used as the basis for a 2002 movie starring Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell.
