Trivia

Although they play mother and daughter in this movie, Kate Nelligan is only 13 years older than Sandra Bullock. See more »

Goofs

(at around 28 mins) Modern repair of facial injuries would not involve large black thread as used on the daughter, especially on a young child. Deep suturing, skin adhesives, dissolvable clear thread and other techniques would both minimize future scaring and reduce the visual impact whilst healing. See more »

Quotes

Linda Hanson: If I let Jim die, is that the same thing as killing him?
Joanne: Honey, Jim's already dead.

Bullock Stands Out In A Below Average Thriller
28 March 2008 | by ChrysanthepopSee all my reviews

Even though 'Premonition' is a remake, it starts off quite well by creating the suspense but as the story proceeds, we are presented with more plot holes (the scar on the daughter's face was absent on Wednesday but she crashed into glass on Tuesday) and towards the end it all becomes ridiculously messy. It is quite well shot and Sandra Bullock does a commendable job carrying the whole film. However the writing is a letdown and the background score acts as a spoiler. The supporting cast does not stand out much as they are not given much to do. Julian McMahon is quite okay. 'Premonition' pretty much turns out just to be another one of those thrillers that one can watch once and then forget. Towards the end, the writer throws in the religious angle (Bullock's character was not portrayed as someone religious or one who lost faith, thus this does not quite fit) which looks forced and of course the usual Hollywood ending. It is not exactly a boring film as one would sit through it till the end. Mostly because we are interested to know what happens to Linda (Bullock makes us care about her). Other than that, the film creates a mood that keeps the viewer somewhat involved.
