    Possibly the worst movie of 2007. show more

    Christensen delivers a low-key performance that is ultimately quite appealing, and he's well matched by the beautiful Alba. Olin brings unexpected depths to what could have been a stock role, and Terrence Howard uses his easy ability to project innate decency to excellent effect. show more

    Why is it that in every movie, Terrence Howard has long freddy Krueger finger nails? I don\'t care who he is or how much he makes, theres no excuse for men to have long finger nails. How annoying! Stop being so damn lazy and cut your nails. Or at least have your nail tech trim those nasty things down. There\'s no reason nor excuseS for it, PERIOD!

    Awake has an interesting premise but would have benefited from tighter performances and more efficient direction and editing.
