''Am I supposed to still hear you?''

The story focuses on a man who suffers "anesthetic awareness" and finds himself awake and aware, but paralyzed, during heart surgery. His mother must wrestle with her own demons as a drama unfolds around them, while trying to unfold the story hidden behind her son's young wife.

The plot is simple, but reveals pretty much what is going to happen. As I don't want to spoil the movie for others, it's enough to say that 1 out of 700 people that undergo surgery find him/herself awake during the procedure, but unable to call for help.
If I divulge anything else, the script itself becomes obvious, so because of that, I found there were no surprises, no twists.

An average movie

“It has been a while since I saw such a messy thriller... The best to do with this flick is to know as least as possible beforehand. Anyway, there are basically 4 parts. The first part was just an agonizing introduction to the characters. The story centers on Hayden Christensen and his relationship with his hot girlfriend portrayed by Jessica Alba, his relationship with his annoying and castrating mother portrayed by Lena Olin, his relationship with his friendly doctor portrayed by Terrence Howard, his medical situation, his job and I almost forgot to mention, the guy is filthy rich! That's a lot of information and they keep throwing this at you in just about 20 minute and it was obviously a little bit too much. Anyway, you get then the 2nd part which was the best moment of the whole movie.” read more

"This movie was not what I expected. It wasn't horrible, it was just that it tried waaay too hard to be something suspense full. There were a whole bunch of components that was trying to make it more complex than it was, but I think it would have been better if they made it simple. I think it would have been better if they focused on the anesthesia part. It's a genuine fear of mine and I think they could have played with that idea alone. "

Hayden Christensen: Clay Beresford

Awake, the thriller by first-time director Joby Harold, takes off from a grisly real-life phenomenon called anesthetic awareness. This is when patients are unaccountably left fully conscious — and physically paralyzed — during the process of surgery, thus Harold, whom also wrote the script, has spun a preposterously entertaining web from this grisly germ of an idea, and manages to hold us in a vice-like grip fo” read more

The acting sucks! Only Lena Olin is worth watching. Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba are mind-blowingly bad. And Terrence Howard is possibly worse.

I found the premise very interesting, but it was, in my opinion, badly scripted - there are several plot holes.

Interesting to watch for the story, but no other reason really.
