Quotes

Father Kennedy: You see, history's full of unexplained phenomena. Nobody knows why. Some people thought they suffered from what the ancients called "Blasphemare absens fides": The dangers of the faithless.
Linda Hanson: The faithless?
Father Kennedy: It's the notion that nature abhors a vacuum, even a spiritual one. People who've lost their beliefs, they're like empty vessels, more susceptible to having their lives taken over by forces bigger than themselves
Linda Hanson: Almost like a curse.
Father Kennedy: Or a miracle.
Linda Hanson: Yeah, well, I don't believe in miracles.
Father Kennedy: Every day ...

Like an overly long episode of "The Twilight Zone"
23 September 2007 | by SuperunknovvnSee all my reviews

I had a premonition this movie would suck, but it wasn't even that bad. The movie is another mystery thriller that toys with the concept of time. Actually it borrows heavily from Kurt Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse 5" with the main character jumping back and forth in time. The problem is that the viewer is always two steps ahead of Sandra Bullock. We watch her slowly finding out what we have known all along and that takes away a lot from the tension.

What's worse are the many mistakes that director Mennan Yapo makes along the way (like a huge continuity error that involves one character getting her face cut and "losing" the wounds for one day). Also, the title is a bit inapt since Sandra Bullock doesn't actually have a "Premonition" but rather lives the days of one week in the wrong order.

So, yeah, this movie is definitely no masterpiece, but it's good enough for one more or less enjoyable viewing. Think an overly long episode of "Twilight Zone" and you'll have an idea of what you're getting from "Premonition".
