Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In Premonition, Linda Hanson (Sandra Bullock) is living in the Twilight Zone as she experiences recurring dreams of her husband's car crash, mediated by days in which the tragedy hasn't yet happened. By the time Linda does see her husband Jim's (Julian McMahon) death, one feels relieved instead of grievous. Though Premonition mines fascinating material, investigating the ways women in particular have uncanny psychic abilities to predict impending family dangers, Linda's premonitions are so convoluted, even to her, that it is difficult to determine their reality. Unrealistic scenes involving a sadistic psychiatrist and an unwarranted lithium prescription would lead one to question Linda's sanity, but instead add falseness to the story. Irritating sequences in which Linda confides in a priest at the local church, who tells her that faith will heal all, seem like Christian propaganda that completely eradicates any real witchcraft in the story. For a truly scary film about clairvoyance, see Dario Argento's Phenomena. Premonition is a bogus take on psychic prediction, as tearjerking as Ghost was during Patrick Swayze's heyday. --Trinie Dalton

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars What emotions would you experience if you had one? July 20, 2007
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this movie, and I like Sandra Bullock's movies anyway. This movie was about a woman who has dreams about her husband's (upcoming?)death. The dreams are in between dreams and reality. It's like she is flipping around between 2 dimentions. In one, he's dead. In another, he's alive. They are somewhat chronological. Each "dream" seems so real. Some seem to be visions of things that COULD happen, IF things progress on a certain track. As you expect, she goes through "am I nuts?" She tries to get help, but she is getting confused herself as to what is reality and others are not really able to help. Once she begins to track things on a calendar, she begins to get a handle on the situation. Then she starts to ask herself IF this is going to happen, can I stop it? Am I guilty of killing him if I don't? What the heck do I do?

Some people may not like the way this movie seems to flip around a bit, but many people who have premonitions or visions do not have them like a movie. They are often fragmented and full of symbolism. This movie spared you the symbolism. It does jump back and forth in the dream world part, but I believe it is realistic. Sandra does a great job in portraying the emotions her character would probably have, including people's disbelief, and her own, too.

I found it a very interesting movie and thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the end, too. And the movie leaves you thinking. . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Premonition or Just Plain Crazy? June 25, 2007
Format:DVD
One day, everything is fine. The next day, the woman's husband dies in a car crash. The next day, she wakes up, and there he is drinking his morning coffee! The next day, he's dead again and funeral arrangements are being made! Every day of the week is a different day, and they are all mixed up! What is going on? Is the woman crazy, confused, or what?

Be prepared to keep guessing and to keep being wrong until the end of the film!

Sandra Bullock gives a great performance as the grief stricken widow Linda Hanson. This is a film you will want to see more than once to put the pieces together. It's part Sixth Sense, part Lake House, part something totally unique. Great movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking July 23, 2007
Format:DVD
If you didn't like the Lake House, you probably won't like premonition.

I really liked Lake House and rather enjoyed Premonition. The great thing about Premonition is the thoughtful sub-story, of why you love, how much you love, and how it affects you for good and ill, and though this seems like a movie you don't have to watch closely, if you want to get that part of it you will.

If you are expecting an action oriented time travel movie, you will be disappointed, but if you want a thought provoking story about deeper emotional issues, then this is a film you should enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Premonition privy to plot holes July 19, 2007
Format:DVD
There is a skit in the animated program Robot Chicken where a caricature of M. Night Shaymalyn keeps shouting "what a twist" when we see little parodies of his films. This is a poignant piece because it hints at one of the major problems in a post 6th Sense Hollywood, where filmakers feel they can woo in audiences with surprise endings and twists and turns throughout the story.

In films like the 6th Sense, such a device is good. But that was a carefully laid twist that didn't confuse filmgoers and the director carefully gave you little snippets of the clues that led to the conclusion. It's an easy to digest 'twist.' It does not work in a film like Premonition, where the twists and turns contradict logic and further confuse filmgoers.

Premonition begins where Bullock plays a happily homebound housewife who has two children. She takes the children to school, goes about her daily chores, listens to a voice message from her husband (where plot holes begin - I'll get to that later), and then receives the disturbing news that her husband is dead. Next day, surprise, he's alive - it must have all been a dream because he's alive and it's a few days before the accident. Next day (for Bullock's character anyway), it's the funeral, oh and there's a really unintentionally funny scene where she attempts to check out the casket! Well it ends up being a lot of going back and forth and the filmakers allude that some of the things that occur must be real, but wait, if this was true, then that first day her daughter should've had scars..and didn't she end up going to a mental institution....does this sound confusing to you? It's how the film operates. And no - none of it makes sense.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Roller Coaster Ride! August 17, 2007
Format:DVD
Ok, the movie sounded like a tear-jerker. Boy was I wrong. This movie kept me in my seat and in front of the TV from start to finish. Having not read the previews, I was expecting to see a wife going through the grief process after losing her husband. Nope. The movie turned that idea on its head. Thanks to some creative editing, time sequences, and just brilliant acting by Sandra Bullock, this movie is worth the price of admission and cost of DVD. A very good movie. There were parts where my mouth was hanging open and I was shocked by actions in the movie. I actually shouted out, "OH NO!" during two parts. Brilliant direction. Brilliant editing. Sandra Bullock should be nominated for an Oscar -- or something. She knocked it out of the park with this movie.
