Movie Info

A brush with death causes a woman to see into the world in a different way in this psychological thriller from Canada. A young woman writing for a tabloid (Cynthia Preston) is working with a veteran reporter (Christopher Lloyd) on a story about a patient at a mental hospital who claims to be able to predict people's deaths. The woman finds herself flashing back to a plane crash in which she was nearly killed and recalling a series of unusual events that occurred in its wake. Soon she begins to wonder if these things may be linked in some way. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Any suspense director Gavin Wilding is able to build is all for naught.

Audience Reviews for Convergence (Premonition)

A bad plot and terrible dialogue seriously dampen and confuse an interesting premise. Devices like voice overs get in the way and last minute explanations from the obligatory bartender/sage character don't save the day or provide any "Oh..." moments. A very different, slightly dark, role for Christopher Lloyd and one he does really well. Cynthia Preston does an equally capable job. I just with they'd had better material to work with.

Starring: Christopher Lloyd, Cynthia Preston, and Adrian Paul. Directed by Gavin Wilding. Written by John Fairly, Raul Inglis, and Gavin Wilding. Rated [b]R[/b] (for some strong sexuality, language and elements of violence). Running time approximately 1 hour 33 minutes. [center][img]http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h159/NuBz86/premonition1999.jpg[/img][/center] [center][i]Strange and unusual don't always add up to interesting.[/i][/center] Here is a film that needed a bigger budget and a much better and more comprehensible screenplay. Som films work if they remain ambiguous throughout. This one does not, because there isn't enough to engage us during its rather slow 93-minute runtime. I don't like it. Maybe the Sandra Bullock-driven [i]Premonition[/i] will be better. I doubt it. [b]*1/2 (out of ****) D+[/b]
