Gattaca Vs Minority Report
Dilhum Imtiaz
Minority Report
In the future DNA can be genetically enhanced.
People born without enhanced genes are considered lower class citizens.
Vincent Freeman denied his dream job becuase he is born naturally.
Vincent takes the identity of a genetically perfect human to get into the space station.
In the future police use the super human abilities of "pre-cogs" to see crimes before they are committed.
John Anderton is accused of a crime he is going to commit.
He takes one of the three pre-cogs to find the minority report, which he hopes shows he is innocent.
In both cases, the majority of society is told to believe they live in a perfect world. In minority report there are advertisements of the accomplishments of the Pre Crime divisions, for example the advertisement that said "6 years ago homicide was high, so the pre cog was made, crime rate reduced 90%. within a year they stopped murder". In Gattaca, people assume that life is perfect because they can now make genetically perfect humans.
Even though these two dystopian movies have different perceptions of the future and different main character achievements, they are still very similar in terms of the theme of manipulation of nature, and main characters willingness to disobey the law.
