Awake

Awake ★★

Despite having powerful performance from Gina Rodriguez and an interesting, nightmarish premise going for it, Mark Raso's 'Awake' is a bit of a snooze. Great concept - a pandemic-like mass affliction that causes everyone to be unable to sleep, but its execution on screen is pretty unconvincing and boring. The movie also relies too much on typical tropes and gimmicks of the genre instead of playing upon the strengths of its fresh premise.
