    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.

    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.

    Premonition is actually more daring than you might expect. Not bold enough to be memorable, maybe, but just enough to keep you from falling asleep in front of the TV.

    Had the film maintained a tone of kooky, Kafkaesque tragicomedy, narrowing in on Linda's wacko wrestling match with the laws of physics, we might really have had something here.
  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.
  7. Pay real money to see this feeble fiasco only if you're in the mood for "Groundhog Day" without the laughs.

    For me it was a pretty decent thriller with some psychological tension and rather good storyline and concept (I mean that random days|events that happened to Linda and which she marked in the improvised calendar). Sandra Bullock's performance was pretty nice and convincing. Expand

    "Premonition" is intriguing, even though it's pretty unclear what the movie wants to discuss. Bullock appears to be a good choice for this role but cannot do much to save the day. It is not bad, there are thrills and gripping moments, but it seems fatuous after its surprising-wannabe ending. Expand
