Now here's an odd little thriller, reminiscent of STAY, for those who remember that truly odd little thriller. A young married man (Hayden Christenson) undergoes a heart transplant, only to find he is awake during the surgery. Somebody messed up on the anesthesia, obviously. He does his best to let the surgeons know he's awake, to no avail. The movie has all sorts of unusual flashbacks and Christenson goes outside his body (in his mind, at least) as he tries to confront various people. Jessica Alba is his bride, and Lena Olin is his mother. Now, if all that happens i this flick was what I just told you, the movie would be over pretty quick. But in fact, there is a whole other plot that slowly reveals itself, and without giving away this jaw dropper of a subplot, I will tell you that Christenson's life is in a lot more danger than he thinks. Terrence Howard plays one of the surgeons, who also is a personal friend of the poor soul lying wide awake on the operating table. Worth a look. And it is no more gaily than an episode of HOUSE or BONES.
