Minority Report  JUN 26 2002

Fifteen minutes into Minority Report, I was hooked hard. Good action, intelligent dialogue, thoughtful vision of the future, careful crafting of the plot. Spielberg worked hard to create a world in which people could lose themselves for two hours and twenty minutes. He had me for the two hours but the Hollywood ending snapped me out of it and I left the theatre with a bad taste in my mouth. The last twenty minutes seemed to be from a completely different film, like the finale of a Tom Clancy movie got tacked onto the end of it. I can't remember the last movie I saw that was so good at the beginning and so mediocre at the end.
