This science thriller is a real white knuckle film
PROS: AWAKE had a lot of great qualities to it, but acting would be the trademark for its good qualities. What I liked about the acting was how the characters interacted as the film progressed, this allowed the movie to be dynamic. Each event or issue that occurred had a cause and effect in the meaning of acting, which is talented. The other thing that I really liked was the ending. The last few minutes of the film were by far the best. It provoked the most emotion, and it was the most engaging part of the film. In a mystery movie you really rely on the resolution of the film to be the catch all. The ending should be memorable, with or without the answer, and it should also be able to connect to the rest of the film, this movie did both.
CONS: The biggest flaw in this movie would have to be the build up of tension. This film dragged on and on. Although you needed to follow along to enjoy the movie, you also weren’t at the edge of your seat while you were following along. There were scenes that made you cringe, some made you scream, and some made your heart beat race, but the proportion from boring scenes to engaging ones was unbalanced.
Worth the Ending
“Awake” begins slowly and continues on that pace until you feel as if you’ve been cheated, but about 2/3 of the way in, it picks up speed, and then rumbles to its jolting conclusion. Plenty of red herrings along the way, but you won’t see them unless you know the ending! Jessica Alba looks fantastic, as usual, and this film showcases many of her charms. The cinematography has the grainy feel of a cheaper late-70’s-to-early-80’s quickie, which adds a little to the neat charm of this lean mystery/chiller. There’s not enough meat on the bones of this storyline to rate “Awake” higher than 7, but the surprises along the way may encourage you to increase that number.
