Mind numbing story.
20 August 2018 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This TV thriller had the potential to be great, with the premonition of a woman seeing criminal events before they happen an appealing plot line. But, the suspense is lost in the sloppy subplot of the love triangle involving the woman, her boyfriend, and the government agent who is trying to help her in her case.

The plot does move at a steady pace and you do get some thrills here and there, with a very eerie and mind-numbing atmosphere. But, the very subpar acting is quite a turn off, including the very annoying and punk-sounding Bruce Davison's character. There seems to be no communication skills between him and Suzy, the female lead.

The premonition plot device is clever, but the focus on that fades away throughout the second half of the movie, which then turns into any normal damsel-in-distress story. Below average, overall.

Grade D+
