  • sketchy character development and poor world-building keep the film and its protagonists at arm's length, leaving behind an aftertaste that mixes frustration with disappointment
    2 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • Mark Raso's touch with score can feel heavy, but he more than makes up for it with honest emotional moments and well-executed plot points
    by Michael Ordona [Los Angeles Times ]
  • Gina Rodriguez is terrific. She is focused, direct, always emotionally present and never overdoing it
    2.5 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • Gina Rodriguez gives a powerful performance.. but other elements of this high-concept thriller fall short. "Awake" seems in a hurry to plunge us into mayhem at the expense of a bit more time spent developing its story and characters
    3 of 5 by Jennifer Green [Common Sense Media ]
  • as a result, Awake never rises to the level of intensity of its cohorts like Crawl or The Crazies. Instead, it keeps reminding you how tired you are, without any perceivable endgame or rising tension
    by Lindsay Traves [Pajiba ]
  • "Awake" is unforgivably dull, a title that by the end becomes more of a challenge; Gina Rodriguez can’t save a silly and unintentionally amusing apocalyptic tale about a mysterious affliction that means people are no longer able to sleep
    1 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • "Awake" is bonkers in a fun way from time to time; And 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
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • "Awake" has it issues with “Bird Box”-ing and cruelty, but the production pulls out of a few dramatic tailspins competently, and the general stress of the premise is felt throughout the viewing experience
    3.5 of 5 by Brian Orndorf [ ]
