This shot is a medium three shot when Cruise and Farrell are debating the ball rolling off the table and human error and precrime. The shot is over the shoulders of John's deputy at precrime. Cruise and Farrell appear as if they are on the middle figure's shoulders and might be trying to influence him, this is because they both have opposite opinions in regards to precrime. In the shot Cruise and Farrell are the same height, but both are different as Cruise is dressed casual representing the cop and Farrell has a suit on representing the bureaucrat. Also, the viewing screen is in the background which represents that Cruise and Farrell have different ways of viewing precrime.
