The movie itself wasn't really too bad. I was a little confused at the opening, but the movie cleared it up quick. The douchebags sitting behind us made a little less enjoyable, kicking our chairs and stuff. I really expected to see more cool 3D effects, but it was still decent.

Overall this movie was alright and I had fun, but it was definitely a flawed film. A rushed pace, some poor uses (and versions) of popular characters, and a more "American" feel were the worst parts. However, the visuals were still awesome, the sets still creepy, and I really liked Adelaide Clemens as Heather Mason. To be honest, unless you were a Silent Hill fan before the first film, you may not enjoy this one much. All the tiny easter eggs left in this film for SH fans are what helped keep it from becoming a "meh" movie.

Saw it with my best friend and it was ok but if you are looking for a good scare this is definitely not the movie for you. It was basically just a suspense movie to help make part one make sense

Wow, what a fun and entertaining Halloween film to visit!
My wife and I caught the early Thursday release prior to the main Friday. We were surprised at how many people filled the theater and responded to the special screening. We were pleasantly pleased when the lights dimmed and the eeriness began. A simple recap and off we were going, back to Silent Hill. The typical cast of creatures are back with the blind nurses offering up a very terrifying scene.
3D technology was up to speed and not overused as we have seen lately in some recent offerings. When the 3D kicked in, we were leaning left and right trying to avoid the onslaught. The most pleasant use of course really played out in the daylight. Walking through the town as ashes fell constantly, surrounding us and really creating and unusual bleak world.
Overall, this is a fun, late night film to take your date to in celebration of the October things that go bump in the night......

I liked the first one so i decided to give the second a try. I went by myself and saw it in 3d. I think the back story should have been explained a little sooner that it was. Left a big hole in the story for about thirty minutes. It was ok.
