As always, Silent Hill films are always vague, so I expected that much. However it seemed to build up ridiculously for you to meet this big bad enemy, only to be a little disappointed in the end.

i am sick of these "critics; ripping this moving apart,They obviously did not play the games nor saw the first film. Second off, stop comparing this to the 1st movie, as it is not supposed ot TIe in at all, THESE are 2 Different films. This movie takes place in Silent Hill 3, with a new character , Heather. Now the new director did his job , making it scary.
it has its moments, but if you are a TRUE silent hill fan you will enjoy this gem! Screw you haters!

Before going to see this movie, everyone said it was a waste of money. After watching, I thought those people may have accidentally gone into a different movie, cause I thought it was great. But it definitely was not up to the standards the first movie set. I think to get the full benefit of it, you probably had to have played Silent Hill 3. There was some corny dialogue at the beginning, and it didn't have the same freaky look the first one did. However, the first full-on Pyramid Head scene almost made me pee. Hate that guy, he haunts my nightmares. The whole Asylum scene was very freaky, 5 stars on that. A little disappointed they didn't use the same little girl for Alessa this time around, but I guess everyone grows up, huh? *spoiler, maybe?* Also happy they hinted toward more movies at the end, hopefully someone else will direct it and give it back that freaky look we loved about the first one. Over-all I think it's a great movie, worth 8 bucks of your hard earned cash.

Being a fan of the Silent Hill game franchise the first movie had a lot to live up to and in most cases it did. It did a fair job of translating the mood and atmosphere of the games onto film. Sadly the follow up, Silent Hill Revelations, failed in every aspect. It starts off with a very promising opening but quickly falls apart. This movie is an example of what happens when you pair a screenwriter and a director who obviously have no love for the source material. I will keep this spoiler free but to be frank all aspects of this story are either contrived, convoluted, or not necessary. We have a lot of buildup to a rushed, confusing, and disappointing ending. Everything fails in this movie, the cinematography, the visual effects, the acting, and even the sound design. This movie is a complete failure. This is a shame because the game franchise has some of the best backstory out there, instead of seeing this movie I suggest you purchase and play the games.
