The Binge Watcher Review: Awaken (2015)

Awaken (2015)
Staring: Natalie Burns, Daryl Hannah, Edward Furlong, Vinnie Jones

A random group of people wake up on an island where they are being hunted down in a sinister plot to harvest their organs.

The Good:
Decent story paired with good actors give us a very watchable movie. This film was obviously shot well with a decent enough budget to give us a high end straight to DVD film. Given the many roles of Natalie Burns in this film, she did a decent job with the main role and has enough talent to be the main action hero for the flick. Lets not forget we also get the amazing Vinnie Jones, and he does an amazing job of just being Vinnie Jones. And if you need any more clarification on his talent just check him out in the TV Show “Galavant”

The Bad:
Through out the film we are treated to moments of weak dialogue and some choppy edits. It definitely is a reminder we are watching a straight to DVD Movie.

Final Thoughts:
This movie defiantly falls into the category of “A Action Movie for Guys that like Movies” and in many ways enforces the idea that little to no CGI is the way to go for upcoming movie makers. I started to watch this film expecting cheesy acting and horrible graphics, just hoping that the best I would get was a movie which was so bad it was good. By the end I found myself enjoying the film.

In the end a movie about a sinister plot to harvest organs for black market procedures is good enough for a view, especially on Hulu. But this movie doesn’t have much re-watchability to it. Enjoy it on a Lazy Saturday Morning.

I give this movie One Thumbs Up. Watch the movie and let us know your thoughts below.
