Premonition (2007)


Average Rating: 3.8/10
Reviews Counted: 161
Fresh: 13
Rotten: 148

Critics Consensus: Overdosing on flashbacks, and more portentous than profound, the overly obtuse Premonition weakly echoes such twisty classics as Memento, The Sixth Sense, and Groundhog Day.

Had it been easier to comprehend at the beginning, there's no telling how bad Premonition might have been.

Premonition barely remembers to create suspense.

I just returned from the immediate future, like two minutes from now, and I have a strong feeling I'm about to give this movie a big thumbs down.

So there you have it: go to church, keep your husband's gaze averted from stray blondes, try not to think about the future, and all shall be well.

Confusing, convoluted and yet gripping and emotional almost in spite of itself Premonition is the first movie Sandra Bullock has successfully 'carried' in years.

The script could have used some analysis itself. After proceeding for an hour in its fairly obvious supernatural path, suddenly the movie decides to get religious.

Like a lot of mediocre movies it's not about much more than the immediate emotional response it's trying to generate. The filmmakers realize this and make an effort to shoe horn some themes in ... it just makes an already muddled movie even more muddled.

Thank God the local priest puts everything in perspective with a string of family-values clichés.

Sloppy filmmaking as a whole.

Full Review… | August 25, 2008

This feeble attempt at a mind-bending thriller has a vaguely interesting premise, but its potential is soon lost thanks to dreary execution.

Dark Bullock deja-vu thriller won't interest kids.

Common Sense Media

The film doesn't have any meaning. Not just because it's bad. Because at the very end, it's very obvious that there wasn't any point to anything.

One can still hear Ebeneezer Scrooge lament, "Why show me this if I am past all hope?"

Full Review… | August 26, 2007

Largely ridiculous but terribly serious.

Sydney Morning Herald

Perhaps sensing the chaos, Bullock acts as if she's standing just outside herself, not quite vested in the role, her mind seemingly elsewhere.

Bangor Daily News (Maine)

This film wants to be a twisty thriller but ends up something of a misogynistic mess which leaves its leading lady stranded.

Murphy's Movie Reviews

I think the actress smiles a total of once in 100 minutes on screen. Granted, it's radiant when she does, but that's not enough to save the film.

Big Picture Big Sound

At times intriguing, often confusing and ultimately frustrating, Premonition jumbles the past and present as Sandra Bullock's young wife and mother tries to change fate.

Full Review… | July 14, 2007
Urban Cinefile

Could have been a darn snappy thriller, but the listless relationship at the story's core, plus ham-handed handling of the essential flashback/ flash forward scenes doom it.

Apollo Guide

Offers its moments of requisite thriller twists that will appeal to fans of that genre.

IGN Movies

A time-twisting drama that ties every detail together in a satisfying conclusion. Sandra Bullock gives one of her best performances to date.

Cinema Sight

Sem conseguir se definir como suspense, ficção científica ou drama, o longa finalmente revela seu vácuo criativo ao entregar-se a uma pregação pseudo-espiritual tola e superficial.

Cinema em Cena

If the director seems to show Sandra no mercy as she's instructed to run around breathlessly for two hours in circles through the past, present and future in no particular order, imagine the even greater toll this movie takes on the exasperated audience.

By the time the requisite, and somewhat silly twist end comes around, we as an audience no longer care.

If Sandra Bullock is concerned about being in too many time-travel movies, well%u2026maybe it's too late.

A messy movie but one that at least cares enough about its central character.

Audience Reviews for Premonition

This is the type of film that uses an interesting concept, but fails to really deliver on its ideas. Seeing the previews, I thought that this would be a terrific Thriller, however it ended up being a disappointing affair. The film isn't awful, but it's one that is fairly mediocre and never reaches its full potential. I really expected something more out of the film, and considering that Sandra Bullock acted in the film, you'd expect something entertaining. The problem with the film is that it tries too hard with its concept, and it never becomes fully fleshed out. The end result is unimpressive, and it leaves a lot to be desired. Premonition really could have been a standout feature, but it just lacks anything remarkable to get you involved in the film. As it is, it's a film that should have been much better than what it turned out to be. I really wanted to enjoy the film, but I felt something could have been improved upon. Premonition is a film that just relies on an underdeveloped concept that really could have made for a great film. Unfortunately, the ideas on-screen never materialize, and it just plays out like a lacking film, which this one ends up being. This is a film that wastes its potential and I think it's a shame. Don't go into this one expecting a great film, you won't find it. Premonition wastes a good cast of talented actors on an underdeveloped script, and this is a film that is quite forgettable. I think it's a shame that Premonition couldn't deliver on its premise, as this film really would have been something special if the kinks in the script could have been worked on, and the rough edges would have been polished. Overall, this is a mediocre disappointment that just doesn't satisfy.

Thriller about a woman who sees her husband die. Can she prevent it from happening?

Candy Rose

I guess I'm the only person who thought this was decent.

Matt Goodman

Gross, weirdly staged, and annoyingly boring. Julian McMahon and Sandra Bullock are believable, but they can't save these film.
