AWAKE (2007 U.S.) D/W: JOBY HAROLD P: JOANA VICENTE/JASON KLIOT/JOHN PENOTTI/FISHER STEVENS
Young NYC tycoon Hayden Christensen goes under the knife for a heart transplant, only to discover that the anesthesia doesn`t put him to sleep, but does leave him paralyzed and in extreme pain. But that`s just the underused gimmick (the Korean flick RETURN covered the phenomeona of anesthesia awareness in more detail the previous year) around which a predictable and quite silly thriller is wrapped. And Christensen automatically destroys any movie he actually has to act in. With Jessica Alba, Terrence Howard, Lena Olin, Christopher McDonald and Stevens.
