    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # 19059 )

    Plot
      Devastated upon receiving the news that her husband has been killed in a tragic car accident, a woman wakes up to find him still very much alive as she begins to slip into a confusing world where the past and the future become increasingly difficult to distinguish. Linda Hanson (Sandra Bullock) was an average housewife with a loving family, but when a policeman comes knocking on her door with news that her husband, Jim (Julian McMahon), was involved in a fatal car accident, Linda's world slowly begins to unravel. While her grief is at first overwhelming, Linda assumes that the whole thing was nothing more than a vivid dream when she wakes to find her family still very much intact. With each passing day, however, Linda's reality shifts and her circumstances grow increasingly surreal; one day Jim is dead and the next he is right there by her side. As her investigation leaves her convinced that her husband's death wasn't a dream and that her picture-perfect life may not have been quite as flawless as she thought, Linda embarks on a mind-bending journey to prevent her grim premonition from becoming a reality. Now, in order to save the man she loves, Linda will have to piece together a perplexing mystery that seems to span two separate planes of reality. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Review

        If there were an Oscar given out for poster art, the first one-sheets for Premonition would have been shoo-ins. These ads were not yet emblazoned with the haunted visage of Sandra Bullock, but they did offer up a face -- a face constructed minimally and memorably from bare tree branches. Alas, this stark design was no premonition of what we'd get from Premonition. It's not that the mood isn't there -- director Mennan Yapo and screenwriter Bill Kelly go a lot darker than might be expected with Bullock as the star. Kelly does a decent job keeping track of which information he divulges at which times, so that at least the non-chronological narrative plays by its own rules. The problem is that those rules don't make much sense. Why is Bullock's Linda Hanson living the days surrounding her husband's death out of sequence? Is she crazy? Or is she just caught in a series of conundrums that exists merely for the sake of a clever script? It's risky to legislate the logic of time travel/future sight, but as with most well-worn devices, there are guidelines that cause a viewer either to suspend disbelief, or just to disbelieve. It's possible to sit there and watch the days of Linda's life being shuffled like a deck, to marvel at the basic skill in how it's being executed, and to still find yourself asking, "Well, so what?" One complicating factor is that viewers never quite know if they want her to succeed in saving her husband. It's a good nod toward realism that Julian McMahon hasn't been her perfect spouse, but perhaps Premonition needed less ambiguity in order for viewers to feel emotionally invested in it. Maybe it could have taken the poster's white sky and dark tree branches as an example how to be more black and white. ~ Derek Armstrong, Rovi
