Amazing atmosphere, 3D, story, monsters/demons, acting, etc.
This is a movie based on the game Silent Hill 3. When I say based, I mean it takes A LOT from the games, but its NOT a word for word and scene for scene copy. Things are going to be different. There were a few times I rolled my eyes at because they were kinda cheesy. lol. But the hellish atmosphere and amazing scenes *cough* amusement park *cough* were incredible!! I absolutely recommend this movie, just see it with an open mind and don't act like a fan boy who wants to correct every damn thing that you see wrong. It's a great and fun movie that keeps you immersed in the psychological world known as Silent Hill!

Even if you're not a Silent Hill fan or have no idea about the game, the movie still has a good story. I'm glad that there were more Pyramid Head appearances as he's my favorite character from both the games and the movies. An hour and 35 minutes just wasn't long enough. I hope they continue the franchise.

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 was very disappointed in Silent Hill and I will not tell people they should see it cause it was a waste of money and of my time.

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.
