Slow pace in the most part of the movie.
I wanted to but couldn't!
Best movie of this year hands down!
The thing I enjoyed most about the film is the fact that it doesn't shy away from being a super-sized-cliche;
Too long, boring and not scary... If you're not a fan of the Silent Hill video game as me, i'm sure that it'll be just a waste of time for you too...
This movie is better than most video game based movies that I've ever seen. While it is true that there are flaws with it, what I don't understand is why people are saying this movie is bad. The director was a huge fan of the game series, and he did a good job.
it just sucks that Cyble Benet died
Without doubt one of the best movie adaptions of a game: full pro production, good actors (Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean, Jodelle Ferland), directing (Christophe Gans, the guy who directed Crying Freeman and Le pacte des loups!) and last but not least superb "graphics" and an intense sinister atmosphere. If you like(d) to play the game, I guess, you already watched the movie or if not, if you will, you will like the movie too.
The second movie Silent Hill: Revelation is for sure not as strong as this one, but despite many negative critics, I like the sequel too.For the connoisseur of horror and thriller indeed Silent Hill is a great pleasure..
As most people who give this movie a low rating, I am a die hard Silent Hill fan. It's my favorite game series, I have to get that out the way, so everyone knows this is just my short, personal (and biased) opinion.
To be fair to myself I watched this movie when I was about 13 years old, and at the time I didn't even know much about Silent Hill and all the metaphors and tiny details that made me like the series today, but even then, I wouldn't give the movie more than a 5 or 6. If you're a fan of the series and you know the lore, avoid the movies at all costs, if you're just someone who's looking for an average Hollywood horror to kill an hour, go for it, you probably won't find it that bad.
