    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    This is the kind of pure entertainment that, in its fullness and generosity, feels almost classic. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Stripped of all bravado, Cruise delivers a raw and probably detractor-proof performance. Spielberg does what he did right in creating a novel milieu for "A.I. Artificial Intelligence," but this time the writing is fresher and anything but unwieldy. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Though his movie wraps challenging ideas and ingenious visual conceits in a futurist film-noir style, it's pretentious, didactic and intentionally but mercilessly bleak in ways that classic noir never was. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Taut entertainment that juggles brainy ideas about perception, predetermination and free will - and drops things in a messy third act where the vintage noir gets bathed in a bit too much Spielbergian glow. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    By turns silly and amazing, a mishmash of Kubrickian devices accompanied by a steady Spielbergian drip of sentimentality. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    This film is such a virtuoso high-wire act, daring so much, achieving it with such grace and skill. Minority Report reminds us why we go to the movies in the first place. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    A heart-pounding experience that makes you think and contains a gallery of characters that will haunt your nightmares for years to come. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    It affirms that, even in the 2000s, movies do not have to be brain-dead to be exciting. When the season is over, Minority Report will more than likely stand out as the best picture to grace multiplex screens during the Summer of 2002. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    May show both director and star working at their professional peaks, but I don't think it's as good as that underappreciated masterwork "A.I." It's not as resonant and daring, not as full of magic and marvel. Spielberg stretches himself technically here but not emotionally. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    This is a fiendishly complicated whodunit -- or, to be more precise, a who-done-what-to-whom-and-when -- told within the confines of thoughtful, speculative science-fiction. show more
