Set in a near future, this movie chronicles a time in america where crime is nearly 0 due to pre-crime. Pre-crime units are systems of technology and precognition that work together to predict, identify and stop a crime before it starts. Although the system is hailed as perfect, there are flaws. This film was hailed for its technological depictions when it was released in 2002, sf is still a pleasure to watch. Some of the technology in the film is real now, and some is still sci fi. A good movie when you are in the mood for intrigue and a thriller.
