Good movie... Creepy that he's 'awake' during surgery and there are some cool plot twists! Would recommend to anyone who likes these kind of movies.

In real life, there's something called "anesthetic awareness" which apparently is a condition in which you are awake during surgery, but paralyzed. You can feel and hear everything, but you can't scream or move. This is the basis for this unrealistic movie that wastes a perfectly good plot by stretching it too far.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)

1. Clay Beresford (Hayden Christensen) is 22, rich, successful, and scared of his mommy
2. He's got a heart condition, which I'm guessing is made worse by the fact that he's secretly engaged to the beautiful Sam Lockwood (Jessica Alba)
3. There's more chemistry between Clay and his mother, than between Christensen and Alba
4. His name finally comes up on the heart waitlist, and he chooses his friend Dr. Harper (Terrence Howard) to perform the operation.
5. The Doc advises him to put his affairs in order, which he does
6. Mommy isn't pleased
7. Christensen displays less emotion than Darth Vader, even when he's not in surgery.
8. No prizes for guessing that a goof up leads to him experiencing anesthetic awareness
9. Movie moves from "science" to "ridiculous"
10. Plot with many twists unfolds, and these are quite good if you can ignore the ridiculous parts of the movie.

In summary, the ending of this movie has a few good moments, but these are largely eclipsed by an unbelievable plot, and some lackluster acting.

Imaginez que vous êtes paralysé, que l'on est en train de comploter votre mort, que vous entendez tout, absolument tout et commencez à comprendre toutes les erreurs que vous avez faites... que l'on vous a manipulé depuis des mois, que tout était orchestré depuis le début et que si vous en êtes rendu là c'est un peu à cause de votre coeur... un peu beaucoup même et 2 fois plutôt qu'une !

Un film qui débute tranquillement, le temps que l'on nous embarque dans l'histoire, que l'on nous endorme tranquillement nous aussi et que l'on tombe sous le charme des différents frelons de cette histoire... On ne voie pas venir plusieurs aspects, je croyais pas que l'on pouvait aussi bien organiser une telle trahison, là on ne parle pas de quelques petits mensonges durant un court laps de temps mais bel et bien d'un très gros complot organisé sur plus d'un an... il faut vraiment ne pas avoir de conscience pour réussir à s'endormir chaque soir avec cela en tête...

4.0 out of 5 stars starts off rather slow April 11 2008
By Derrick Jenkins - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
but towards ends of a great note. Some folks might not be interested at that point when things finally do pick up in this movie. But all the actors (Christensen, Alba, Howard and Olin) are connecting at that point in the movie. But this one is based on people that while having surgery are paralyzed but are able to feel whats going on at the same time though. They can't scream or contact anyone which is a pretty raw deal and especially so in this case with all the plotting, backstabbing and evil things that are going on while Christensen is getting operated on.

Again its a slow starting movie that really gets it going in the latter half where things start to come together and storylines are brought to the forefront. If you can hang on until then your getting what you came for and rewarded with a nice shocker that you may or may not have seen coming unless your paying attention to certain characters. I didnt see it coming and i thought i was on it with this on.

But Awake while not the best thing you'll see this year. It is a movie that brings a different situation to light that others might not have known about and does it fairly well for the most part. Give it a rent and see what you think after that, i think it will be something you'll be discussing with others afterwards.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie June 30 2016

This is a great movie. I always wanted to watch it. I didn't get a chance in tell I received it a few weeks ago. I watched it yesterday and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was going to be hard to watch with fear of being under. But it's not about that.
2.0 out of 5 stars Very weak storyline Jan. 5 2010
By Ronald in Hawaii - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
You know those movies that look very interesting on the previews but turn out to be such duds? This is one of those.

The problem is not Jessica or Hayden -- who both look great -- itis the very lame premise of the story. Granted that I am willing to give some leeway for dramatic license, and this storyline has some dramatic twists and turns that provide surprise -- but this storyline is TOO much of a stretch in element after element after element.

And except for the beautiful Miss Alba there is nothing else sufficiently redeeming about the movie to justify its existence. Sorry.
