    The plot from awake was not original, Stephen King already wrote a similar premise decades ago. The film was incoherent, nonsensical, and rage inducing. If not for Alba it would have been completely forgotten.

    Though acting could of been better, but it is still well acted and casted. Lena Olin carried this film, she was fierce and strong, and Hayden Christensen, Jessica Alba and Terrence Howard were good too, I just thought Lena Olin carried the film. The plot was good, the twist was great too, and the surgery scene was just really good, it looked real too. Critics are a little harsh on this movie, but I fully enjoyed the subject and the performances, its a really good movie.

    I was kind of disappointed. It started off very slow...and the suspense just din't fit. It wasn't exactly what I thought it would be, it was alot different. The only interesting scene was the heart transplant, but that's about it. The acting was good, though, and i liked the whole out-of-body experience thing. All and all, it was an ok suspense flick, with a not so suprising twist ending.

    This was really good! I didn't expect the twist at the end. I couldn't imagine that happening to me - how scary!
