Premonition (2007)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic 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.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

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.

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.
