John Anderton is a top "Precrime" cop in the late-21st century, when technology can predict crimes before they're committed. But Anderton becomes the quarry when another investigator targets him for a murder charge. Can Anderton find a glitch in the system and prove his innocence before it's too late?
In this Steven Spielberg sci-fi movie, Tom Criuse plays John Anderton, chief of Washington, D.C.'s Precrime Unit, whose ability to stop murder before they happen has kept the District of Columbia murder-free for six years. Then Anderton himself is blamed for a murder that will happen in 36 hours, and he has that amount of time to figure out who set him up. An average movie; it's a bit confusing at times, and one particular woman does quite a bit of annoying yelling and screaming. Some of the color was taken out of the picture, which is reminiscent of Spielberg's 'Saving Private Ryan.'
