Sandra Bullock stars in this spooky thriller about a woman who has a premonition about her husbandís death and then attempts to stop it from happening.
The film lacks power from the outset as the marketing campaign alone manages to ruin every element of surprise before youíve seen a single frame. Nevertheless, Premonition is a decent enough rainy day flick. Itís the kind of fare that wouldnít be out of place in the line up at a ladies coffee morning.
Bullock is okay, McMahon isnít really in it that much and whilst Elise Neal does the best that she can with a rubbish role, the character is terribly misplaced. This is the palest film I have ever seen and they throw in a lively obligatory black best friend. I smell an equal opportunities deal here.
This to me seems like a drama that had a supernatural element attached to ensure it was slightly more exciting that it originally would have been.
Premonition is an okay way to kill two hours but itís more the kind of thing Iíd buy my mum on DVD in an attempt to slowly and steadily convert her to horror, than buy myself.
