Hayden Christensen in Awake Arrives on DVD

Starring Hayden Christensen, Jessica Alba, Terrence Howard and Lena Olin. Awake is the story of a man, Hayden Christensen, whose failed anesthesia leaves him awake but paralyzed and aware during surgery and able to feel every cut and hear everything going on around him. As he tries to deal with the trauma of the surgery he is also made aware of another drama surrounding him and his new bride played by Jessica Alba.

Awake is a cool suspense thriller that grabs you and keeps you on your toes from beginning to end thanks to Joby Harold's slick writing and direction. The pace is fast and keeps you on the edge of your seat with an ending you won't see coming. Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba and the rest of the cast, in a bit of clever casting, provide unexpected surprises throughout. Fine performances and a unique story make this a must see.
