I read the reviews on this movie, but it still didnt deter me. Having never played a Silent Hill video game I cant comment on the comparison between the movie and the video game series but hope the video games are a lot better. The acting was subpar at best (but presuming that's NOT why anyone would see this movie) but the effects were cool....Unfortunately I see another sequel in the future...hopefully FAR into the future and better acting...

I really enjoyed the movie. I am a big fan of the Silent Hill video games and I like that the movie stayed true to the game. There was suspense and gore in the movie which I couldn't ask for more. I just wish the theater I went to didn't have annoying immature kids talking and laughing throughout the movie. Besides that, the movie was wonderful.

The first "Silent Hill" is related to this one in title only. I always try to find something nice to say about a movie because I know it took bunches of people and gazillions of dollars and months to even years to bring it to the screen. In this case, I kind of wish they'd opted to let the first one stand as a monolith of horror. Sadly, it's all about the money, especially in movies. And it shows here. For all the genuinely artful special effects and camera work, the elaborate make up and set designs, you'd think they'd have spent at least some of that budget on a decent screenplay. Not a chance, and that's what makes this among the most comically awful horror movies, or perhaps movies in general, that this viewer has ever seen. For perspective on that last comment, I see hundreds of films on screen in theaters each year. It's what I do for fun and what I've been doing for fun for more than a decade now. Skip this one. You'll be glad you did. Insist on more for your money.

Went to see this movie last night....Total FAILfor me. The acting was horrible. The graphics were good, they could have utilized the 3D aspect of movie way more than they did. There is acturally a HUGGING...yes HUGGING fight scene (for those who seen this movie know what I am talking about). I can usually deal with bad acting if the effects and graphics are good, but when all three are less than bad it becomes thumbs down all the way, Sorry for Silent Hill fans, but this could've been WAY better with all the effects and technology outlets that are available. I did enjoy the previews before the movie...

Silent Hill in 3D was awsome. I jumped a few times and swore it looked as if the swords and knives were gonna stab you. I loved how they also kept try to the game and how they showed how Rose got Shannon back into the real world with Harry. I thought it was really great and the best one that I seen that stayed true to the game. I do wish however that they would of had the roller coaster part of the game.
