Watched Awake tonight. Hayden Christiansen, Jessica Alba, Lena Olin, and Terrance Howard (this dude is everywhere these days - he has one big hit and now he takes any script that comes his way - has to make bank while he can). This movie wasn't bad.
Hayden Christiansen has a bad heart, loves Jessica Alba, Lena Olin is the mom, Terrance Howard is the doctor. The mom doesn't know that Hayden and Jessica are in love. The doctor is Hayden's friend, but also his doctor. Hayden needs a heart transplant. Jessica and Hayden get married, a new heart comes through for him. Hayden goes in for transplant and he is awake during the transplant, he can hear and feel everything. During the transplant secrets start to come out. These are secrets that Hayden doesnt want to hear. Things get a little crazy. But the mom figures it all out and then makes the ultimate sacrifice to help her son get back to life and the bad guys get what is coming to them. Then Hayden wakes up.
I give this movie 2.5 out of 5 stars. Jessica Alba cannot act. She is horrible. Hayden can barely act. Lena Olin and Terrance Howard are great, but when they have to interact with the two losers things go downhill pretty fast. I feel that some movies are just thrown together, there is no beginning and no real end. And in some movies there is no real problem that is the center of the movie. We watched another movie Margot at the Wedding that I do not want to even talk about, and since this is my blog, I do not have to do anything that I do not want to.
