Young banking heir Clay Beresford (Hayden Christensen – Jumper) has everything – prestige, a beautiful new wife (Jessica Alba – Fantastic Four) and a lucrative career, but what he needs most of all is a life-saving heart transplant. Luckily the perfect donor is found, but joy soon turns to sheer, unmitigated terror, when he finds himself in a situation few dare to imagine. He suffers anaesthetic awareness and is inadvertently left completely alert during the complicated and painful surgery. Physically paralysed but mentally awake, he hears of a conspiracy to have him murdered and realises he is powerless to stop it.
I was convinced by two previous good reviews to rent this film. It is, however, dull and predictable. Both Alba and Christensen have the screen presence of blocks of wood. Watched the the trailer? Then you have seen the film and there are no real surprises left. Not watched the trailer? Then you have no real surprises waiting for you...
This is a brilliant movie! Well worth a watch or several for that matter, it keeps you going the hole way through. I can't really say anything about what happens in the movie as I don't want tot give anything away but what I will say is that you will be hoping that it never happens to you.
Better than expected. 2 big plot twists, moves at a good pace.
