Film Review: Premonition

Being away for the weekend you end up watching films you wouldn't normally watch and so I found myself with my mum and her partner watching Premonition with Sandra Bullock. I've always quite liked Sandra Bullock but lets face it, she's not exactly in very exciting films and she's not exactly an Oscar-winning talent either. But hey ho. Apparently the trailer looked good.
The plot was basically that Sandra Bullock and Dannii Monogue's ex-husband lived out in the woods, eating squirrels. She dreamt that her husband was going to die and had to decide whether to let him or not (as he was a bit of an arse). For a schlocky thriller it sure was a confusing film for the first 45 minutes. It was kind of like Groundhog Day mixed with Memento. When it finally fell into place, it did make sense but until then it was like 'oh is she going to wake up and it's all a dream' as in all the very worst stories you wrote when you were a kid.
Sandra Bullock's acting ranged from slightly frowning to really frowning. The story was kind of ridiculous, but I guess it's good they didn't go for the obvious ending.
All in all not the worst way to kill a Saturday afternoon, but it added nothing to my life.
(They liked it though)
