Premonition

A depressed housewife (Sandra Bullock) receives news that her husband has died in a car accident. But miraculously, she awakens the next morning to find hubby alive and well. And then the next day she finds out that he's dead again. And then he's alive. It's about then she realizes that the calendar ain't progressing in a linear fashion, and she wonders whether she should do something to prevent her husband's untimely death. Sandra Bullock seems to like these time travel movies (She recently 'dazzled' us in the horrific 'The Lake House'). If only she could be travel back to the glory days of 'Speed'.

Reviews & comments

Loved it!

This movie was the first in a very long time to fully 'capture' me and provide one twist after another. Once all the untwisting was finished, it then provided so many aspects of assessing one's life, and making the audience wonder what they would do different about their relationships with people around them, if they had the chance to do things...

Review

Not dull exactly, just incomprehensible. I found myself screaming at the characters to change their actions as they approached the very predictable, unbelievably boring ending.

This slick exercise about a housewife whose spouse might or might not be dead is effective until a downright maudlin close...

The usually likable Bullock, obstructed by glaring continuity problems and often baffling character motivation, comes across as unsympathetically dazed and confused here, giving the viewer little reason to care about this desperate housewife's puzzling predicament...

Interesting premise but by the weaker third act the audience is left wondering if they care about any of it...

Mixing elements of Double Jeopardy, Sliding Doors, Signs, Final Destination, Dragonfly, Memento and Deja Vu, German director Yapo's film is an inconsistent, incoherent and infuriating psychological thriller...
