Tom Cruise's boss set everything up to prevent the system falling apart. Colin Farrell realizes this but the boss shoots him. Tom Cruise is locked up, but eventually is released by his wife and they put two & two together. Apparently, the boss really abducted his son, because he knew that if he did, Tom would join and further the alliance out of grief to uncover the truth. There is a big banquet going on for the alliance and Tom makes it so he takes the boss aside and the whole assembly and everyone in the building hears the truth from the boss's mouth by an undercover camera. The boss pulls out a gun and we think he will shoot Tom but instead shoots himself. Now that everyone know the truth the whole operation is shut down. Tom Cruise and his ex wife get back together and we find that she will have another baby. The three pre-cogs go to live in a cottage in seclusion so they can finally be in peace.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when Anderton arrests the jealous husband, he notes that he is being arrested on April 22 - that day - for the future murder of his wife and her lover. Later, while Anderton is jogging, we see billboards advocating a "Yes" vote on pre-crime on April 22. The next day, Anderton's boss Lamar notes that the vote is in a week, which would make it April 15, making the day that the jealous husband was arrested April 14, not April 22. (00:13:05 - 00:15:15)
Officer Fletcher: John, don't run.
John Anderton: You don't have to chase me.
