This movie was so boring several of us fell asleep during the movie. There really doesn't seem to be any interesting plot. Just seems to be some thread there to try and throw scary stuff out at you unexpectedly which wasn't all so unexpected. Save your money and go see a different movie.

If you are a fan of the original Silent Hill games, and you've seen how fear lurks around every corner, then you'll know that this movie was a great disappointment to fans worldwide.
With poor acting, scenes that aren't scary at all; including poor jump-scare attempts, and just things that make you want to say "Seriously?". Silent Hill Revelation 3D just wasn't Silent Hill, it was Silent Hell.
I went to see this movie with 2 others, and we were both sitting in our seats with the same expression on our face throughout mostly the entire movie. We didn't really say a word until the very end of the movie. The story was choppy and out of whack, the scares weren't really scary, however, it did strike some enjoyment. The 3D was pretty interesting at times, but there was nothing special about the movie in particular.

It has been 6 years since the release of the first Silent Hill movie and fans have been eagerly waiting for a sequel. Now, we finally have one, and boy is it a let down. First off, this movie isn't so terrible as I'm making it seem. It did have "some" good acting in it. It also started off good. However, the spoiling of what would have been a good twist to those who have not played Silent Hill 3 could have been easily done without especially since it was made in the first 15 minutes. The character Vincent was introduced well, but he said a lot of really bold things to Heather Mason for someone that just met her such as "I don't want anything bad to happen to you." Once the characters made their way into Silent Hill, the story just started to get really messy. Heather started coming out of character, there were pop out scare tactics so cheesy even William Castle would have thought were corny.

This movie is most closely based off of Silent Hill 3 with a little Silent Hill 1 thrown in.
Don't expect this movie to be like the first. It lacks the character development, plot development, and finesse of the first movie.
It creates more questions than it answers... and not in a good way. The poor plot is set up by dialogue that is so disjointed, that it is hard to make the leap of logic necessary to justify the actions of the characters. This all comes to a big WTF moment at the end of the movie.
The first Silent Hill movie is one of the very few movies that were worth being made from a video game. This movie doesn't attain that same status. At least it is better than the most recent Resident Evil movie.
I rate this so -so for those that played the video games and will appreciate the similarities and characters from the game. For everyone else... you might want to pass on it.

An awesome follow up to the first movie! Silent Hill: Revelation 3D uses the 3D features brilliantly. The movie could have followed the third game a little closer, but all in all, definitely worth seeing on Halloween! The ending leaves you wanting more. Fans of the video game series will notice the game references and horror fans will love the new monsters. Don't miss it!
