The idea behind ‘Premonition’ draws heavily from films like ‘Donnie Darko’, ‘The Forgotten’, ‘Memento’ and ‘The Butterfly Effect’; and while to some extent it successfully takes elements of those films and repackages them in a new way, the flimsy storyline comes off as half baked and full of silly plot holes. While I am a fan of fragmented storytelling this isn’t one of those films, like those listed above, that manages to pull it off. The jumbled sequence of days the story is played out across seemed to be made purposefully confusing by the director just for the sake of keeping the viewer confused, and without trying to spoil the plot too much, if you manage to get your head around the sequence of events and understand what is actually happening in turns of what are premonitions and what are not, then the whole story kind of falls apart. Overall, this is one of those films which will divide opinion; you’ll either love it or hate it.
good story and keeps you thinking what might happen. it puts you in a dilemma about what you would do if you were in this situation. good ending and keeps you you in suspense about whether it will happen in the end
