Hampered by narrative incoherence, sluggish pacing and emotionally remote characters.

A sleek psychological thriller outwitted by its own hyper craftsmanship.

A meandering, incoherent tale of a car crash victim coming to grips with his life after coming out of a coma.

the line that separates "clever" from "confusing" is very thin

isn't so much confusing as it is bafflingly uninspired and stupid

A film this unpleasant should at least be absorbing. This one is a hard film to get into and it really does not reward that effort.

Trauma is obviously not the scariest film ever made, but it has a fair good crack.

...the movie plays like a second rate Jacob's Ladder...

Influenced by Japanese horror movies... we are treated to ants running free, TVs which transmit nothing but hiss, spooky psychiatrists and mediums to little or no purpose.

There's an eerie creepiness about this psychological thriller that really gets into your head.

By the time the narrative starts heading somewhere remotely interesting (i.e. a murder or a revelation or just SOMEthing), you may be too groggy to notice...

Lurks around like it's some kind of innovative, all-original psychological thriller, when in fact it rates a big fat "so what?"

Audience Reviews for Trauma

Firth awakens from a coma to discover his wife is dead and he is suspected of murdering a pop idol. This is a psychological thriller that isn't always so logical. What it is do, mostly thanks to Firth, is capture the sheer terror of people perceiving you as mad. It's a difficult job to truly make us believe that both reality and fantasy are possible. As Firth's mental state begins to crumble around him the film does lose some of its footing. It gets to a point where confusion and surprise become Evans' main objective. Thankfully, it's never a dull ride, and when one looks at the emotional destruction, it can seem so much more fulfilling.

This movie starts out slow but then moves frenetically to a somewhat surprising ending. It is reminiscent of some of those Japanese style horror films in terms of its imagery. I haven't seen Firth in a role like this before, and I thought he was excellent. Twists and turns abound in this movie which are enough to keep you involved wondering what's real and what isn't.
