Cruise plays John Anderton, a futuristic cop that works with a special technology that predicts crimes before they are committed. When he becomes suspected of a future murder, he must try to find something to prove his innocence before an investigator (Farrell) catches him first. He "kidnaps" one of the precogs that has been a prime element in the Pre-Crime system that has kept Washington D.C. murder-free for years.
It may sound silly, but the story is much deeper than I could ever explain to you through the computer. There is another storyline that connects to this one about his son's untimely disappearance (which leads to the ending). I do admit, at times the camera effects left me feeling a little dizzy, but the interesting direction deserves some recognition. One thing that you will absolutely love, is the believable look into the future. Excluding the cars and highways, I could see the world looking like that in the next century. I may be crazy though. There is that one moment (it never fails) where Tom breaks down in tears over something. In every movie they must dedicate a scene to him crying. If you can get passed that, and a few camera issues then you should thoroughly enjoy this.
