Minority Report minor plot hole

ericb
The entire first scene where Anderton is trying to figure out where the man whose wife is cheating on him is going to kill her and her lover has a huge hole. It is perfectly obvious that the husband is going to kill his wife and her lover in a house. So instead of wasting time and flipping through all the pre-cog images of the murder, why doesn't Anderton cross check either the husband's or the lover's addresses and see if they match up with any clues derived from the images? Nope, that's a bad idea. What, the police in 2054 don't have information on where people live like they do in 2013? This whole scene makes no sense, Anderton wastes so much time, and not only that, when Anderton gets to the place where the husband is going to commit the murder, he asks his colleague to see if the husband left the door open when re-entering the house to get his glasses. Maybe at this point, before entering the field, it would be smart to check one of those people's addresses? One last thing, for some reason, Anderton feels it perfectly alright to just run into the front door of the house and run up the stairs to stop the murder. The other policemen he is with feels it is necessary to break the man's beautiful sky light and drop in on the scene like they don't give a shit. That's just rude man, come on Stevie.

The main problem with Minority Report is the same paradoxical one with all time-travel or future-view stories. In time-travel, you can't successfully change the past without erasing your objective for going back in time in the first place. In future-view stories, like Minority Report, once you've changed the future predicted by the precogs, why did they ever see it at all? No murder takes place so why did they even detect it? If anything, they would have predicted an attempted murder, and shown a clip of PreCrime arresting the suspect.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The plot hole I listed was just a minor example of the several holes in this film, but I completely agree with you.

It's addressed in the movie. The Marks family had just moved, that's why Pre-Crime couldn't find the guy's address directly.
