I’ve watched Awake yesterday.
AWAKE, is an unsettling thriller that illustrates a deeply troubling medical problem faced by Clay (Hayden Christensen). “Anaesthetic awareness” is a rare but dangerously prevalent condition that affects nearly 30,000 individuals a year, in which patients who have been put under anesthesia before surgery remain paralyzed while still being aware of their present situation.
Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba were cast as lovebirds in this film.
Don’t expect too much of lovey dovey scenes as this is supposed to be a thriller, not a romantic flick!!
In my humble opinion, Hayden Christensen’s acting has improved significantly compared to his ‘Anakin
Wood Skywalker’ in Star Wars. I kinda like him in this movie compared to the action saga.
In this thriller, Hayden has more room to show his acting skills rather than just waving the Light Saber.
Overall, Awake‘s production was kinda mediocre; this psychological thriller is nevertheless gripping in its reality-based terror.
Here is the trailer if you need a little spoiler.
