Brazil's "The Punisher".

The Awakener is a Brazilian movie about a special agent that goes rogue after his daughter dies because of Brazil's poor public health care system; so he starts doing justice with his own hands towards those he deems responsible for his and all Brazilians' suffering. It's based on a Brazilian comic book with the same name.

Its "The Punisher"-ish elements can be seen throughout the movie; the main character is full of sorrow and crazy about revenge, so mad that he starts crossing the line of what's even right to do. He blames the system and he wants to shut it down.

It's good entertainment. Take it as Brazilian's antihero plot approach. Although, it kinda suffers from some Brazilian robotic acting. Sometimes, some swearing seems unnatural, specially when they are saying the words way too well, as if they are reading a formal book; but that doesn't happen too often.

Overall, a good underground antihero. soon to be forgotten.

Not bad

First act was cheap. Second act was excellent. Third act started boring then ended well.

Good production value for a brazilian movie. The story is already seen, punisher-like, but the main character is likable. Nice action. We don't have the unrealistic stuff like "1 vs 35" fights or people thinking guns are knife. The movie felt realistic.

Well done, give it a try.

I was going to watch the movie open minded, since I like Brazilian movies as a Brazilian. Even considering that Brazil usually does not make good action movies.

The 5 stars I give is for some action scenes, some CGI (except the final scene) and the city, that is kind of mash-up of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Also, it have a nice urban atmosphere. I admit that the movie could take my attention all the time, but there are some things that distracted me and could not made the movie good.

The actors: they act like robots. And as a Brazilian, I can say that no one speaks like they... there is always a punch or a saying. Everything is just unnatural, and I think the worse part is the villains, that are so much caricature (why they laugh all the time? This isn't a cartoon).

The action scenes: there are some over-action scenes there. The main character is kinda overpower, but there is no justification for that. Also, the are some unnecessary parkour stunts (why jump with a backflip when you can just jump?). Some scenes are just good because of the post edition (camera cuts).

The mask: the way that the main character gets the mask is unnatural, or maybe stupid. How could he know about the red lights? It is terrible.

I could write about some other bad scenes and ideas, like the unnecessary length of the movie, but I will just say that it is watchable, specially if you are Brazilian. If not, maybe you won't like at all the movie.
