Critic Reviews for Before I Wake
What we get here is a thin stew instead of a hearty brew.
Before I Wake doesn't have the story nor the suspense to keep it engaging, making this Flanagan's first misfire.
A dramatic-supernatural escape that, rather than scaring you, it will make you sleepy. [Full review in Spanish]
We're still not sure when Before I Wake will get a release, but I can tell you at least this much: it hasn't been delayed for reasons of quality. It's actually pretty fantastic, truth be told.
Audience Reviews for Before I Wake
Good premise, good design. Bad lead performance, bad... amount... of dropped plot points? That was less concise than it sounded in my head. What I'm trying to say is that for every positive Before I Wake has on offer, there is an equal and opposite negative to bring it back down again.
This film deserved a wider showing and it was something I quite enjoyed. It plays a lot like Mama and visually it feels much the same, not a bad film. The only issues I had was the kids performance which was extremely dull and uninspired, why must he always be a zombie? He did sleep at certain points. The story was very interesting and that final scene is brilliant, emotional and very strong. I couldn't get why Bosworth's would attempt to save the kid after he did what he did, this ultimately dropped my score. Flanagan is a great talent behind the camera and I like to see where he goes next, I can't fault his visual storytelling and this atmospheric gem should find an audience through streaming. 28/04/2017.
What could have been a great psychological drama about loss and healing turns out to be a frustrating and tonal mess after a promising beginning. Full review on filmotrope. com
