Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Had it been easier to comprehend at the beginning, there's no telling how bad Premonition might have been."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"So there you have it: go to church, keep your husband's gaze averted from stray blondes, try not to think about the future, and all shall be well."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Like a lot of mediocre movies it's not about much more than the immediate emotional response it's trying to generate. The filmmakers realize this and make an effort to shoe horn some themes in ... it just makes an already muddled movie even more muddled."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"This feeble attempt at a mind-bending thriller has a vaguely interesting premise, but its potential is soon lost thanks to dreary execution."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"One can still hear Ebeneezer Scrooge lament, "Why show me this if I am past all hope?""
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"Premonition barely remembers to create suspense."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"Confusing, convoluted and yet gripping and emotional almost in spite of itself Premonition is the first movie Sandra Bullock has successfully 'carried' in years."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Thank God the local priest puts everything in perspective with a string of family-values clichés."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"Dark Bullock deja-vu thriller won't interest kids."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"Largely ridiculous but terribly serious."
‑ Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
"I just returned from the immediate future, like two minutes from now, and I have a strong feeling I'm about to give this movie a big thumbs down."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The script could have used some analysis itself. After proceeding for an hour in its fairly obvious supernatural path, suddenly the movie decides to get religious."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Sloppy filmmaking as a whole."
‑ Heather Huntington,
"The film doesn't have any meaning. Not just because it's bad. Because at the very end, it's very obvious that there wasn't any point to anything."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Perhaps sensing the chaos, Bullock acts as if she's standing just outside herself, not quite vested in the role, her mind seemingly elsewhere."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
