This really tried to be a good movie, but it didn't make alot of sense, things weren't explained, like the ending.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I thought it was going to be bad, but it turned out to be a good movie. Not your ordinary scary film. It had a great story, and was well written, with good acting and an interesting finish. The beginning is a little confusing, however, everything comes together in the end. Worth viewing.

I enjoyed this movie even though this is not usually the type I order. I didn't fully understand all that happened in it because I don't go in for supernatural. There was a pretty decent plot and the acting was good. I think it was worth watching. Especially if you like supernatural movies.
"I have a bad Premonition about this."

"Originally titled "Convergence," "Premonition" seems like a brainchild of Chris Carter, or something of a homage to his creations, "The X-Files" and "Millennium." It is a supernatural thriller on the order of "End of Days" and "Stigmata," and it's just as bad as both. The movie follows two tabloid journalists searching for the next big story. Christopher Lloyd plays Morley Allen, the skeptical Fox Mulder (from the fifth season of "The X-Files") who specializes in the extraordinary and the supernatural. Like Mulder, he's searching for the Truth: What is the Reason, the Purpose, the Answer? Lloyd has more than a passing resemblance to Lance Henriksen's Frank Black of "Millennium" with his dark clothing, dour demeanor and permanent scowl. Perhaps Henriksen had better things to do than reprise a similar role. The second journalist is Ali Caine, played by Cynthia Preston. Her innocent beauty belies a shady and mysterious past that even she has a hard time understanding. Unlike Dana Scully to Mulder or Emma Hollis to Black, Ali is a poor counterpoint to Morley. She is the vulnerable victim of the horror genre, the stereotypical blonde in distress. In their investigations, the two encounter a institutionalized boy, who can foresee the deaths of people, and a man (Adrian Paul) obsessed with death who finds beauty in the lifeless form. Somehow there is a connection or a convergence that links these four characters. But, in the end, nothing makes sense. Faced with all the facts at the conclusion, even Morley echoes my sentiments when he says, "I just don't understand." And I can hear the director's defense when John (Blu Mankuma), Morley's friend and the local coffee shop owner, replies, "There's nothing to understand. It just is." As it is, "Premonition" is not a good movie. It tries very hard to be creepy with its musical score and its bleak-gray photography of an always-raining Seattle (coincidentally, the original setting of "Millennium"). Even the voice-over narration attempts to give the movie a film noir feel. But in all cases, "Premonition" fails. After all, what can you expect from a movie that sums up its premise with "There's nothing to understand. Understanding [doesn't] really matter.""
`Se7en or Sixth Sense?

"Premonition is a good thriller in the line of Se7en but with a something like The Sixth Sense, also it has a good cast and direction."

"the ending leaves you with the thought of a parallel universe. It was like a time warp and "what if" things turned out this way?"
