  1. Charlotte Normand's rating of the film The Awakening

  2. muh.'s rating of the film The Awakening

    The problem with this movie is that it tries to be too many things at the same time and just starts stepping on its feet as it nears to a close. Shame really because it's interesting enough with a good cast and production value.

  3. Peach Cobbler's rating of the film The Awakening

    I had faith in this film up until the final chapters, really lost the plot so to speak

  4. Ayinde Anderson's rating of the film The Awakening

    all good till the 4th quarter

  5. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Awakening

    Murphy conferma di saperci fare e confeziona una buona ghost story,dal ritmo abbastanza lento ma con una messa in scena e movimenti molto adeguati ad un prodotto di genere.Non mi sono piaciuti gli effetti alla Del Toro e lo spiegone familiare,mentre ho trovato ottime la fotografia,la protagonista(un pò Ichabod Crane di burtoniana memoria)e la casa delle bambole,forse la scena top.Non lascia il segno,ma è buon film.

  6. Dan's rating of the film The Awakening

    +.5 for being so damn pretty and atmospheric. Way more enjoyable and scary than it should be.

  7. msmichel's rating of the film The Awakening

    An old fashioned English ghost story that deserved a little more acclaim and a lot more viewers then it received on release. Rebecca Hall is marvelous here capturing a tortured soul debunking the one thing she wishes was true. The script is dynamite in the early going giving in to some conveniences later on but lingers on in the memory after watching despite them. Supporting turns are strong as well.

  9. Dibyajyoti Sarma's rating of the film The Awakening

    Kudos to Rebecca Hall for lifting a maudlin ghost story to the level of a shearing experience.

  10. Lightintodark's rating of the film The Awakening

    Florence Cathcart: Boys believe in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. I'm sure some of them even believe in God.

  11. Jonathan's rating of the film The Awakening

    british ghost stories - instant coma.

  12. J. O.'s rating of the film The Awakening

    A ghostly period drama with fantastic production quality and skillful cinematography. Unfortunately, some foreseeable twists leave the ending feeling a little rushed, but ultimately it had a wonderful atmosphere and great performances to boot.

  13. Nate's rating of the film The Awakening

    Too many late term twists dampen an otherwise atmospheric and skillfully executed genre flick. I had no idea a doll house could make me scream.

  14. saiths's rating of the film The Awakening

    this was my late night netflix watch and i didn't know anything about it going in. i don't regret that at all because turns out, i was pleasantly surprised. although most people who've done a review have said the ending was quite laughable, i enjoyed it a lot. it was ambiguous. you get to decide how to perceive the ending and it was done very tastefully. it got a bit cliche with the family nonsense but it worked.

  15. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film The Awakening

    indeed... the final part ruin the movie, after a quite mysterious & atmospheric one most of the time.

  16. Laura Hilton-Smith's rating of the film The Awakening

    No.17 - The first 2/3 of this film are really good; creepy and atmospheric with brooding undertones of post-war guilt but it starts to fall apart towards the end.

  17. Tigrão's rating of the film The Awakening

    Rebecca Hall wearing 1920s clothes is a feast for the eyes. Apart from that, it's nicely shot, but there isn't much soul to that film. That twist ending was a bit laughable as well. Watchable, though.

  18. fleur de chair's rating of the film The Awakening

    I admire the attempt to make a ghost story with real substance, but the writers tried to cram too much stuff into the plot. It's a hot mess, full of plot holes and unnecessary scenes. Worse, the ghostly gimmicks and twist ending were totally predictable. This could have been a really poignant and frightening film if the screenplay had been sent to someone competent for a thorough vetting! Rebecca Hall was great.

  19. Francisco R.'s rating of the film The Awakening

    The story works as long as it keeps its feet on solid ground, where it can properly come to terms with its concerns of loss and grievance. It's when the film forgets its human side, and shows instead a sterile, completely unorganic denouement where it starts to falter, and my complaint is that it depends too heavily on a rarified construction when the right choice was far simpler.

  20. hastapura's rating of the film The Awakening

    The essence of "handsomely mounted"...as well as the botched third act. Conjures eerie, damp-soaked atmosphere with great characters, strong acting, and an unshakable sense of place and time. Then comes the dumb twist. Unnecessary, though not without its visual pleasures. The final scene tries to reclaim some shred of ambiguity and it's down to Hall's performance that it has any chance of succeeding.

  21. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film The Awakening

    Gorgeous cinematography, muddled plot (2.6/5)

  22. Howard Orr's rating of the film The Awakening

    A film that has real moments of beauty when dealing with grief, regret, and the tricks played by memory. However, it's fatally undermined when it goes for jump-out-of-the-seat frights and achingly clever twists, because these largely unnecesary gimmics suggest that the writers didn't really have faith in the less sensationaist elements.

  23. Glim Ho's rating of the film The Awakening

    人还是不要活在回忆里好

  24. Maar's rating of the film The Awakening
