The 100-Word Critic: Premonition

Written by: Stacy Centa, the 100-Word Critic

Wednesday follows Tuesday which follows Monday, right? Not if you’re Sandra Bullock in Premonition.

The premise is simple: a husband dies.  The movie is anything but.  Suspense and drama are interwoven craftily throughout this film where time is not linear.  Bullock plays the soon-to-be widow who refuses to accept her own insanity and struggles to solve the puzzle.  Julian McMahon, the doomed husband, will disappoint Nip/Tuck fans by his lack of screen time.  

Ultimately, it’s a fun ride.   Sure, there are loose ends and a startling “What the?” moment at the end, but it’s a must for your Netflix queue.
