Awake (2021)


“You know, my grandmama, you know what she used to tell me? That all the world’s problems could disappear in one generation if every kid grew up forgetting all the sh*t they were taught, the sh*t that doesn’t make sense, but you’re taught it enough times you believe it. Then we could actually live in a world where no one is starving… and everyone’s equal.” – Dodge

Number of Times Seen – 1 (13 Jun 2021)

Brief Synopsis – After a global event destroys all technology and everyone’s ability to sleep, a mother does all she can to try and save her children.

My Take on it – Horrendous premise that fails to work on so many levels.

The story starts off well, but soon dives into some very strange and esoteric ideas that make things so much harder to truly care about.

None of the characters are likable enough and despite attempts to develop them all a bit more via conversations and dialogue, it all just doesn’t help enough.

The way that they present things isn’t convincing enough and the constant attempts to try and solve this new dilemma are completely fruitless.

When they eventually reveal the way to combat this new pandemic, it all seems far too unbelievable and random because no real explanation is even attempted in order to help the viewer understand things better.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In the library, one sees small white sticker with a red maple leaf, on the spines of some books. These stickers indicate that the books are written by Canadian authors. This was filmed in a branch of the Toronto Public Library. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
