The story of a man who suffers "anesthetic awareness" and finds himself awake and aware, but paralyzed, during heart surgery. His young wife must wrestle with her own demons as a drama unfolds around them.
Thriller - This a short, but slow and fairly talky mystery-thriller. Those
looking for horror scares will be disappointed. Jessica Alba's role
is more of a supporting role to the true lead, Hayden Christensen.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 87 moviegoers:
TEENS:Most females really enjoyed "Awake." There were a fair number who only rated it as Good/Average, which is OK but not great. The guys rated it somewhat lower. Most rated it in the average to above average range. Recommended, but not strongly.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great reviews from the females. Only a few rated it as low as Good. Highly Recommended! As for the guys, only about half truly enjoyed "Awake." The remaining half of the reviews were split between average and below average, which is pretty low.
ADULTS:Both the males and females rated it about the same. About half truly enjoyed "Awake." Most of the remaining half rated it as a Good/Average movie, which is OK but it may not be worth a full ticket price. I would certainly recommend a matinee if this looks like a movie you would enjoy.
