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. But Anderton knows he has never contemplated such a thing, and this knowledge proves the precogs are fallible. Now, whichever way he turns, Anderton is doomed--unless he can find the precogs's "minority report"--the dissenting voice that represents his one hope of getting at the truth in time to save himself from his own system.A film version of The Minority Report, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, will be released this summer–further proof of the enduring appeal of Philip K. Dick's visionary fiction.

3.0 The Minority Report
I'm not an old, crusty sci-fi fan who read this when it came out in '56. No, I'm a neophyte who only knows about The Minority Report because of the 2002 movie version. It's hard not to associate this solid, yet too short short story with that blockbuster flick starring Tom Cruise......and I'm not ev...

Este es uno de esos extrañisimos casos en los que la película es mejor que el libro. Mucho mejor.

4.0 The Minority Report
only 112 pages, so I hesitate to give it the 5 stars the actual tightly-written prose deserves... 112 pages = very long short story? or very short novel? a 'novella' I suppose... in any case, length seems to be the only criterion calling for less than full honors.Minority Report turned into a Tom Cr...

I have never seen the movie starring Tom Cruise, so my first exposure to this story is Philip K. Dick's story. I see that this thing was first published in 1956, right at the end of Stalin's reign of terror in the Soviet Union, and right during McCarthyism in the United States. Maybe I have commun...
