  • Cisneros is an appealing actor, but he and Falling Awake get buried under a welter of clichés. show more

  • Playing smarter and smoother than the plot, Cisneros uncorks an antimacho performance that deviates from type. His unconventional hero is worthy of a more original treatment. show more

  • 30

    Underacted, overheated and uses a pair of purloined, high-end sneakers as a 400-pound allegory for getting your priorities straight. show more
