Factual error: The time period of the movie is 2054. There is an election day (April 22nd) that is on a billboard and then announced as a Tuesday. However, April 22nd, 2054 is actually on a Wednesday.
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.

Question: OK, let's see: Lamar Burgess set Anderton up; he Hired Leo Crow and sent him to be killed in a hotel. But How did exactly Burgess plan the meeting of Anderton with Crow? Anderton arrived at the crime scene by a chain of events that began with the pre-vision of his destiny. It was clear that Lamar did not fake the pre-vision, because this became true just like it was predicted; besides, when Anderton was being chased, he arrived to crime scene by a coincidence; so what did Burguess have to do to make sure the existence of the pre-vision and this possible future? I don't see a simple solution.
