    The star and the more overwrought aspects of the plot are mainstream but the philosophical implications will not appeal to those who prefer easily digestible cinematic portions. It's also true that the more deeply one considers the movie's themes and structure, the less sense it makes.
  2. 50
    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.

    Had it been easier to comprehend at the beginning, there's no telling how bad Premonition might have been.
  4. 40
    Sandra Bullock is a disheveled, grumpy, adorable mess in Premonition, a psychological thriller that was no doubt pitched as "Medium," only longer and brunette. Or maybe "The Eternal Sixth Sense of the Spotless Groundhog Day."
  5. 38
    When you awake, it may all seem like a bad dream - but why is your wallet missing $11? Scary.
  6. 30
    Although Premonition is not a frightening movie, it is aimed squarely at an audience of frightened souls.

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

    In spite of inconsistencies of the plot, it packed a psychological punch --- and was effective overall.

    I'm surprised by all the bad reviews. Any mention of the Final Destinations or Butterfly Effect does the film a grave disservice. I'm surprised by all the bad reviews. Any mention of the Final Destinations or Butterfly Effect does the film a grave disservice. There's a touching grace to how the story unfolds. Yes, there are some plot inconsistencies, but the film carries it through with genuine heart (all too rare for cookie-cutter Hollywood). Expand

    Nothing here to diminish Bullock's competence as an actress, but if one can see the future as past events, one must conclude here that Nothing here to diminish Bullock's competence as an actress, but if one can see the future as past events, one must conclude here that those who learn from the past are also doomed to repeat it. For those few, those unhappy few who have the option, this movie is a good argument to take life as it comes rather than skipping ahead. Expand

    The plot wasn't that hard to follow, the movie would actually be better if it wasn't easy to follow since the obvious huge plot The plot wasn't that hard to follow, the movie would actually be better if it wasn't easy to follow since the obvious huge plot holes are really what makes the movie stink. Whoever directed/wrote this trash should give everyone who watched it a full refund. I don't want to post spoilers, but put it this way. If the writer wanted to be so lazy, they shouldn't have opened up a can of worms involving time travel. Expand

    Boring and pointless on top of morally ambigous. What was the point. Faith, Hope? It took a lot of faith and hope to not walk out of that film.
