Awareness is a 2023 thriller movie, directed by Daniel Benmayor, is a film about Ian, played by Carlos Scholz, who has supernatural powers that allow him to make others see what he wants them to see.

The Story:

Awareness is a movie that follows a rebellious teen who uses his power to create visual illusions in other people’s minds to run small scams. However, when his powers are revealed, he finds himself being hunted by those who want his powers for themselves. The movie has been rated 16+ (Amazon) by the MPAA.

Keith Hawkes is not sure if the writing was two hours of parboiled inanity or if it just didn’t survive the translation from Spanish to English. The film plays with congealed old stories like a disinterested raccoon pawing through last night’s trash. It borrows heavily from other stories, but it doesn’t know what to do with the pieces it has. The movie is a boring, jumbled mess, and even teens aren’t going to want to wade through the garbled cliches of the plot to get to the moderately interesting fight scenes.

Is Awareness suitable for kids?

The film is not suitable for family audiences due to the intense violence and ludicrous body count. Moreover, Vicente’s heavy drinking and profanity make it unsuitable for children. The film is a poor choice for anyone looking for something new in the superhero genre.
