For six years, Washington D.C. has been murder-free thanks to astounding technology which identifies killers before they commit their crimes. But when the chief of the Precrime Unit (Cruise) is himself accused of a future murder, he has just 36 hours to discover who set him up - or he'll fall victim to the "perfect" system he helped create.

An absolutely brilliant science fiction thriller, with a plot in the here and now. It's the old story of ambitious cop sets up some one in authority, perhaps as a way in to his job, or as a way to save his own. It may be a classic story line, but this has a very modern twist. In the future, people are arrested before they actually commit the murder that they will carry out, as it is foreseen by some psychics (Pre-crime). The use of Technology is fantastic, as are the special effects. Tom Cruise plays the part of the cop who is set up admirably and Colin Farrell does 'nasty' really well. Our teenage children found it as enthralling as we did.
