“Premonition” is about a housewife (Bullock) who starts living her days out of after finding out that her husband was killed in a car accident.
As you are watching don’t try and figure it out it will be explained later, but it is a bit confusing. As the days jump out of order right from the start it takes awhile just as the character to catch your bearings. Once you do the movie starts to pick up. I got caught up in the urgency of his death and the things that have happened and are going to happen.
“Premonition” is a true thriller. Once I got figure out and had the clues I really got into the mystery of the film and the conflict that the character face. The moral, spiritual, and universal questions that she was asking herself and her priest really struck a cord with me.
The ending is the best I seen in a while. Then I thought about questions that I have asked myself about universe and fate. Does having future knowledge mean fate has already ordain these events to happen or can we change them? And if by interfering and trying to change these events are we really setting them in motion? Do we really have control or are our lives predestined to be what they will be? This questions are what I felt made it a good film.
“Premonition” is full of bonus feature. It has a few deleted scenes and an alternate ending. It features a gag reel and a making of featurette that also explains the film in chronological order. There is also an audio commentary featuring the director Mennan Yapo and Sandra Bullock. It also has movie previews for: “Across the Universe”, “The Messenger”, “Ghost Rider”, “Catch and Release”, “The Holiday”, “The Pursuit of Happyness”, “The Net”, “28 Days”, and “Daddy Day Camp”.
I give it a 3/5 Gs.
