Suburban housewife Linda wakes up this morning to find her husband, who died in a car crash yesterday, is back like nothing ever happened. Realizing she seems to be having premonitions, Linda tries desperately to figure out what is going on and if she can prevent his death.
Sandra Bullock (Linda), Julian McMahon (Jim), Shyann McClure (Megan), Courtney Burness (Bridgette), Nia Long (Annie), Marc Macaulay (Sheriff Reilly), Kate Nelligan (Joanne), Irene Ziegler (Mrs. Quinn), Amber Valletta (Claire).
Premonition is a bit confusing in the beginning but we soon find that is not only the allure of the film but exactly how Linda must feel living the nightmare that has suddenly become her life. The mix of drama with time-shifts was quite enjoyable and made for a somewhat unique and interesting theme. Toward the end it is easy to feel like this one is figured out and that is about the same time some interesting twists come into the story.
Acting from Bullock was surprisingly good with actual delivery of emotion and energy in dialogue! McMahon was a good choice to play opposite Bullock and did pretty well. McClue supported well, while Burness did very nicely. Valletta, Ziegler and the remainder of the cast supported nicely.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were pretty good. Attention to detail was fairly well done and quite important in this film. Effects were nicely done with a solid, realistic feel. Dialogue was good without being overly dramatic. Sound and soundtrack were well done.
Overall Premonition is a solid sci-fi thriller from most every technical aspect. Those who enjoy a dose of time-travel and the supernatural will enjoy this the most while those defining life with logic may find it ridiculous.
With some violence, disturbing content, foul language, and mild sexuality this should be fine for older teens and above.
Premonition is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 4 out of 5
