I can't say anything bad about the movie, but when it comes right down to it, I am easily put at the edge of my seat. There wasn't anything that really got my nerves so taught that I jumped out of my skin at a time when I should. I think I jumped more during the preview of Texas Chainsaw. Still, scenes were done well with good action. I am not all that tough on movies, I can't make a movie myself, but it was Halloween night, and I was in the mood and expected to jump out of my skin. The plot was interesting and kept me wondering for a good long time what was what.

It was overall Boring. It did have some scenes where you jumped, or it was a lot of suspense, but defintely not worth the 15 dollars spent. -_- Wait for DVD or Netflix!

To be honest, there were parts that seemed rushed and could have been alot better. But altogether, the movie didn't feel too long for being an hour and a half, and the story line was pretty good. In the end, you feel fulfilled and satisfied. Altogether, pretty good.

This movie is all style and no substance. It looks good, has some genuinely creepy moments (usually ruined by a "gotcha" scare), a typically bizarre (and wonderful) performance by Malcolm McDowell, and some better than average 3D effects. But the narrative is a mess. The movie sends you into a non-stop barrage of horrifying images, taking a break every now and again to allow a character to explain what is happening. It's as if the writer knows you probably didn't see the first film (I did) or have not played the video games (I have) and needs to bring you up to speed. I never mind that a film does not follow a source game or book exactly (as I feel a movie must be able to stand on it's own merits--besides, if it did, I'd rather read the book or play the game!) but this one needed a few more rewrites. When you consider that the SH franchise of games is drenched in psychology and symbology, the films are a big disapointment.

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.
