    Synopsis


    Awake
    Jessica Alba, Hayden Christensen, and Terrence Howard star in first-time director/screenwriter Joby Harold's nerve-jangling psychological thriller about a man who experiences the frighteningly common surgical phenomenon known as "anesthetic awareness," in which those laid out on the operating table remain acutely aware of what is going on around them despite remaining completely paralyzed and unable to cry out for help. When a successful young man (Christensen) goes under the knife and realizes that the anesthesia hasn't quite done its job, the horror quickly sets in as his worried wife (Alba) waits anxiously and a terrifying drama unfolds in the operating room. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      An exciting psycho thriller with big plot twists

      4 of 5 stars for the psycho thriller movie Awake. This movie starts by giving stats on how many patients per year enter a strange awake-state called "anesthetic awareness" during surgery. OK, we can guess that this is the subject of this movie. The lead character, played by young Darth Vader Hayden Christensen is in need of a heart transplant. He marries his sweetheart (the sexy Jessica Alba) the night before the operation. As the surgery begins, lets just say it gets twisted with loads of surprises. A well created movie with a great plot and some real surprises. You should be warned that there are some graphic scenes during the surgery not for the weak stomach; I'd argue, they weren't really needed to advance the story. I do recommend this movie, however, not after a full meal.

      Just the fact that what happens to the Hayden Christensen in this movie actually does happen to a % of hospital patients is unthinkable-but very TRUE. This movie has suspense, greed, betrayal, & expressions of both false & genuine loyalty amongst all the players. It's great all the way to the end!!We had seen this as a rental, and went right out & bought it afterward!

      The sad part about this is that I will be buying another copy of this movie due to the bad state of my other one. But the plot is amazing and it's just goes into sneaky person after sneaky person. What if you went under the knife and could still hear people talking? This may not be on your radar but it is a sure hit. I watched it several times just to fully understand things

      Great medical thriller

      Being in the medical field attracted me to this movie in the first place and I was hoked within the first ten minutes. The plot is not too deep and each character is covered just enough to throw you off. The twist towards the ending is what really made me love this movie. Highly recommended for a date or just a good night in with some popcorn.

      Much better than I thought it would be. This movie really gave me the creeps. You will think twice next time you are going in for a "routine" operation.
