Los Angeles Times - Michael Ordona
If the end-of-the-world genre seems downright somnambulant lately, Awake is jolting proof a fiendishly clever twist can shake it from its doldrums.
63
RogerEbert.com - Monica Castillo
Awake has just enough scares and strangeness, plus a sense of dread and paranoia, to make its horror creepy and enjoyable. It’s not a flawless thriller, but enough different elements click into place, like Rodriguez and Greenblatt’s performances.
60
Paste Magazine - Joseph Stanichar
There are a few tense moments, good performances and a fair variety of settings to make it feel like a complete journey. But by having some science-fiction cause for why nobody sleeps, it’s not about actual insomnia in any way that’s relatable to anyone.
50
San Francisco Chronicle - Mick LaSalle
Awake fails only in the sense that it’s a movie in one note, and thus its story only knows one direction, which is downhill.
42
The A.V. Club - Mike D'Angelo
Awake becomes the saga of a mom’s redemption. Rodriguez works hard to make this personal angle compelling, exhibiting mama-bear ferocity, but the film’s ultra-bleak premise doesn’t cooperate.
