Writer-director Joby Harold's debut is stylishly self-assured and suspenseful enough to quicken the pulse.

Outlandish, preposterous, contrived,and implausible thriller which happens to be fun if you ignore the fact that it's outlandish,preposterous,contrived and implausible.

Less painful than having your chest cut open, but a disagreeable experience just the same.

Cinema em Cena

Se um ator admirável como Terrence Howard surge tão constrangedor neste longa, que chances teriam pobres aspirantes a intérpretes como Hayden Christensen e Jessica Alba?

It becomes more and more fun as the twists pile up -- not entirely convincing, but diverting, like something concocted by a bright eighth-grader.

Victoria Times Colonist (B.C., Canada)

Harold sustains an unsettling tone and the graphic depiction of what goes on under the knife is, well, a surgery-phobic patient's worst nightmare

eye WEEKLY

The twist-happy screenplay holds together, and the actors around Christensen are better than they have to be: not only reliable hands like Lena Olin and Arliss Howard, but also a perfectly cast Jessica Alba, smartly playing with and against her looks.

Makes one want to assume a state of mind opposite to the film's title.

Unloads a volley of plot twists that'll have you slapping your head in disbelief, provided you haven't figured them out by the end of Act I.

While much of "Awake" simply doesn't work, there are just enough things on display that do to make you wish that someone had taken the time to elaborate on them

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Is this goofy, misguided movie enough to keep you "Awake?"Probably, but only if you're laughing during this unintentionally comical drama.

Engages the viewer from start to finish and boasts a handful of decent performances. Crazy but fun.

Admittedly mediocre, this psychological thriller is nevertheless gripping in its reality-based terror.

Awake feels like an Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode unfolding in slow motion, with each new revelation coming a reel or two after viewers have guessed it.

A medical thriller with a noggin full of novocaine, this shocker about a botched heart surgery evidently suffered brain surgery to match.

The most vapid stars of our age, Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba, achieve total vapidosity in this jaw-dropping exercise in preposterosity from newcomer Joby Harold.
