In six years precrime all but finishes premeditated crime. The only type of murders now are crimes of passion. So when John Anderton, the cheif of Precrime is identified as the next perpetrator, he has to find out who the person he is supposed to kill is and why he would want to kill him.

Tom Cruise and Colin Farrel are more than adequate for the characters they portray.
