Awake : Movie Review

In a strange way, the new thriller “Awake” reminded me of Monty Python. You see, as the film kept rolling along, it just got sillier and sillier. By the third act, I was expecting the late Graham Chapman to pop out from around the corner wearing the British General outfit and stop the movie, declaring that things had just become too silly.

I went into “Awake” expecting to see a nice little movie about anesthetic awareness, but then it started having so many plot twists that the Ask-a-Ninja guy would be more annoyed with it than he was “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.” By the time things were all said and done, we were left with a story that didn’t even deal with anesthetic awareness, so much so that the concept was really nothing more than an excuse to show a guy screaming in his head during open-heart surgery.

See for full review
