Critic Reviews of "Awake"AV ClubDecember 06, 2007
Awake feels like an Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode unfolding in slow motion, with each new revelation coming a reel or two after viewers have guessed it.L.A. WeeklyDecember 06, 2007
A medical thriller with a noggin full of novocaine, this shocker about a botched heart surgery evidently suffered brain surgery to match.Globe and MailDecember 03, 2007
With a couple of more drafts to mend the plot holes and restructure the middle act, Awake could have been saved.Orlando SentinelDecember 03, 2007
[Joby] Harold's script has a surprise or three in it, a biggy near the end. But he's a director with no poker face. He tips his hand early and often.Washington PostDecember 03, 2007
Awake is a pleasing if negligible diversion.Toronto StarDecember 03, 2007
The plot has more holes in it than a tea bag and the film should come with a warning label: don't go see with anyone with even a modicum of medical knowledge, because they'll surely spend the film huffing and rolling their eyes skyward.7M PicturesSeptember 04, 2014
so far fetched that I couldn't swallow the storySan Francisco ExaminerJune 05, 2008
Writer-director Joby Harold's debut is stylishly self-assured and suspenseful enough to quicken the pulse.CinemaBlend.comMay 02, 2008
Outlandish, preposterous, contrived,and implausible thriller which happens to be fun if you ignore the fact that it's outlandish,preposterous,contrived and implausible.Film4April 25, 2008
Imagine it's a comedy and pray for the end.Empire MagazineApril 06, 2008
Less painful than having your chest cut open, but a disagreeable experience just the same.Cinema em CenaApril 04, 2008
Se um ator admirável como Terrence Howard surge tão constrangedor neste longa, que chances teriam pobres aspirantes a intérpretes como Hayden Christensen e Jessica Alba?
