This movie disappointed me
I thought it really sad
Though Sandra Bullock was okay
The screenplay's pretty bad

The movie shows parallel times
But with a quirky twist
Successive days don't seem to match
But yet they coexist

Some scenes they just threw in the mix
To make the movie longer
They fail to move the plot along
Or make it any stronger

The characters are just outlines
The background story's missing
Sometimes it's hard to figure out
Which part's the "premo-niscing"

Far too complex for a film
That's just too dark and bleak
Good luck to you in working out
What happened in each week

This one's not one that you should buy
To keep in your turntable
And even Sandra Bullock fans
Should wait for it on cable

review by . March 06, 2009
This movie came out about the same time as another film called Deja Vu. Both films dealt with time travel to some degree and centered around preventing a death. This movie doesn't quite measure up to the other film.     It takes place over a week, however the days occur out of sequence. Sandra Bullock goes to sleep with a seemingly happy family of two girls and a husband. She wakes up to find that her husband died during an out of town trip that she doesn't remember. She then …

I liked it, but they could have done more. My favorite movies are those where characters act realistically, and where there is good logic/sequence to the movie. This movie fails a little bit in both, IF she is actually able to travel back and forth through time in her mind. However, I have an explanation for that.    Overall, I think that Bullock's character was committed because she had suffered a mental breakdown- the trauma of seeing her husband killed.    My …

Premonition
'Premonition' is a suspense film that scores a little low on the suspense-o-meter. Linda Hanson (the fabulously talented Sandra Bullock) and her husband Jim (Julian McMahon from Nip/Tuck) have a happy life. Nice home, two beautiful daughters, and a loving marriage. Then Jim dies in a car accident, leaving Linda trying to cope with her loss.     But, when she wakes up the next morning, Jim is alive again, just like his death never happened. But Linda remembers everything from …

Pros: Well there werenÂ’t any...     Cons: Convoluted, puzzling, stupid plot, fuzzy direction.     The Bottom Line: In the final analysis Premonition is a confusing, head scratching (I know redundant term) mess, a riddle, wrapped inside a puzzle that cannot be solved, at least by this reviewer.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. Now I consider myself a pretty intelligent guy; rocket scientist no …

Pros: interesting subject, solid characters      Cons: chaotic pacing, drama billed as thriller      The Bottom Line: If you were given a chance to change one event in your life, would you take the chance?      Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. Linda (Sandra Bullock) and Jim Hanson (Julian MacMahon) have a good marriage. Their home is warm and inviting, and their children are playful, intelligent …

Her husband's dead - or is he? Her daughter has a bloody accident, but when? She wakes up knowing her husband's dead, only to hear him in the shower. So what's going on with this poor woman? You'll have to watch this movie several times before you can figure it out, which I've never been able to do. Premonition is sort of the dark side of Ground Hog Day- deja vu all over again. Every character in it is without warmth, with the exception of the wife and kids. Whether or not anything psychic is going …

review by . August 27, 2007
Sandra Bullock has the keen sensitivity to pick up some roles that she thinks she can create a niche and leave a mark of her acting skills. That is what interests me to see her movies. In "Premonition" - a time-tripping attempt to do for marital malaise what "Groundhog Day" did for commitment-phobia - a bored housewife named Linda (Sandra Bullock) wakes up one day, like any other day, and goes about her daily routine. She makes breakfast, takes the kids to school, jogs, does laundry - the usual. …

Relative newcomers, writer Bill Kelly and director Mennan Yapo, have concocted a testy little conundrum of a movie titled PREMONITION: whether the audience decides to step into their little nightmare or reject the premise that powerful emotions can drive the brain to peculiar directions of functioning will be the divisive break in acceptance of the film's premise. It is a fairly well done, thought provoking experience and is carried by some better than average performances by a strong cast.    T …

Sometimes I'm amazed at how differently people can see the same thing. One person detests a work that another finds fresh and amazing.    Go figure.    I like Sandra Bullock. So I think I'm looking at Premonition through that mindset. I also love suspense and twisty plots. Bullock plays a solid character like she does in each of her films - a woman facing circumstances with varying degrees of self-control and courage. Linda reminded me of Bullock's character …
