Critic Reviews for Awake

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (10)

For audiences bored by what amounts to a slow-burn road trip, it's all too easy to close your eyes and look for something more exciting in your dreams.

June 11, 2021 | Full Review…

The promise of an intriguing premise results in expectations that the film, which rarely diverges from the familiar feel of a post-apocalyptic road movie, is unable to capture.

June 10, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Awake has just enough scares and strangeness, plus a sense of dread and paranoia, to make its horror creepy and enjoyable.

June 9, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

There is no getting around it: Mark Raso's "Awake" is bad. But at least it's so bad that it's often ludicrously laughable: Netflix may well have a cult turkey on its hands.

Rodriguez is terrific. She is focused, direct, always emotionally present and never overdoing it.

June 9, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

So for those asking the obvious: Yes, Awake should put you to sleep rather quickly.
