Premonition barely remembers to create suspense.

March 20, 2007
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.
March 16, 2007
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.

The sloppy, absent-minded Premonition is a step back in time and a giant leap backward for Sandra Bullock.

As Premonition slowly creeps toward a ridiculous faith-based climax or two, you may feel compelled to take a nap yourself. When you awake, it may all seem like a bad dream -- but why is your wallet missing $11? Scary.

Premonition is an odd little thing, with a protagonist in a protracted fugue state and a plot that doesn't know whether its coming or going.

At least all this uncertainty is leading up to a spectacular twist ending -- oh, wait. No, it's not.

I have a premonition you won't give a damn. I sure as hell didn't.

March 16, 2007
The psychological thriller Premonition is neither as beguiling as you might hope nor as moronic as you might fear, floating comfortably in that gray, maybe-we-can-get-it-from-Netflix territory.

The convoluted setup doesn't produce a payoff worthy of the attention this film demands.

March 16, 2007
Premonition works hard at wearing out its welcome, with numerous scenes that don't seem to add up and too many characters who feel underwritten.

March 16, 2007
Somber but soulful, Premonition has a strong dramatic performance by Sandra Bullock and a gimmicky plot that doesn't grate until the end.

When we get to the top of the roller coaster, the film stalls and slows down.

It never pays to think too much about movies constructed to make you think.

March 16, 2007
Premonition, for all its far-fetched nature, never lets go of its momentum and holds the audience every inch of the way.

March 16, 2007
Premonition is both dreary and absurd, suffering from a lack of intrinsic logic and terrible pacing, a one-two punch that kills off any chance of entertainment value.

March 16, 2007
Premonition maintains a chilly grip on the viewer, almost in spite of the spotty storytelling.

Pay real money to see this feeble fiasco only if you're in the mood for Groundhog Day without the laughs.

She's confused. We're confused. So is the movie.

Movies obsessed with keeping us guessing can miss out on providing reasons to keep us caring.

March 16, 2007
The most irritating thing about this film is its overall lack of clear direction. Bullock is always running around in a sort of a fog, dashing from scene to scene, but with no sense of purpose.

March 16, 2007
Fans of horror, thrillers, and the films of Sandra Bullock will find Premonition puzzling since it fails to honor any of them.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 15, 2007
Its biggest failing - and the ultimate one for a lightweight entertainment such as this - is that it's a deadly bore from start to finish. Even more annoying is its blind-alley structure resulting in an unsatisfying mind game for the audience.

March 15, 2007
The picture can't decide between cheap scares or deep thoughts, so it goes for both.
March 15, 2007
Can you suffocate by constantly stifling yawns? If so, Premonition should be labeled a public health threat.

May I suggest that it's time to declare a moratorium on movies about time?

In Premonition, Sandra Bullock plays a woman going through a horrifying experience. She keeps waking up in this movie.

If you've seen the ads, you've seen the movie.

Premonition is a dour Groundhog Day for desperate housewives.

As Premonition zigzags toward its solution it loses its head completely, packing a risible final reel with left-field religious disquisitions and heartfelt warnings against infidelity.

March 15, 2007
[A] hackneyed supernatural thriller that plays like a cross between a Lifetime network spinoff of Final Destination and the infamous Bobby-in-the-shower episode of Dallas.
March 15, 2007
With her tetchy screen persona, Sandra Bullock is well served by brainteasers like The Lake House and this passable thriller about a woman who seems to be bouncing between two alternate realities.
March 15, 2007
Premonition is probably two-thirds of a good movie, and sometimes that's enough. But I have a, well, premonition it may not be, especially when it comes to those all-important opening-weekend grosses.

Movies like Memento, told backward, are so six years ago. Premonition complicates it all by throwing the whole calendar week out of order.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
March 14, 2007
In an attempt to be unconventional and surreal, the film has no arc, and everyone talks in shorthand. But Ms. Bullock gives Premonition a truthful center.
March 14, 2007
Although aspects of Premonition tantalize, other elements frustrate, and that makes for an uneasy final result.

March 13, 2007
Sandra Bullock's latest time-shifter goes nowhere, slow.
March 13, 2007
Bullock's affable performance starts strong then muscles up as a faint but lifesaving strain of humor creeps into the material.
March 12, 2007
Someone connected with the psychological thriller Premonition should have been clairvoyant enough to realize that when you don't have a good finale, it doesn't pay to substitute two bad endings.
March 12, 2007
Stronger style and atmosphere would have greatly benefited a pic that seems to abandon its own supernatural aspects to sheer plot mechanism.
