This is the first movie I've seen that was shot in only first person view. And it was awesome! That's the only reason I even saw the movie, actually. If it wasn't for the first person view, the movie would've sucked even more. It starts off nicely. But then gets lost in all the ridiculous gore and blood and it doesn't make sense. It's mostly just the main character going around the hotel, running from enemies and killing them. I was very suprised by the ammount of gore and blood, and I wouldn't recommend this movie to those who can't stand gore and get easily sick.
I haven't yet seen the original, but as soon as I get a chance, I'm gonna see it! I'm sure it's gonna be better than this! But, this wasn't such a bad movie like everyone seems to think. It has a good story and a few good plot twists which make the movie interesting and intense to watch. I personally loved the character of Keith Jennings. As a horror movie, it delivers and I think horror fans should see it. Others might not enjoy it as much as fans, but it's an ok movie and has a quite evil feeling to it.
I expected a much better comedy from Seth MacFarlane, something more like Ted or Family Guy. This was just a bunch of gags put together to make a movie, an overly long one, too. Most of the jokes are stupid, and gross, and will only make you laugh if you're into that kind of humour, which is similair to the humour in parody movies. The cast is good, and likeable, but it doesn't quite save this movie. All in all, it's a missable movie. Dissapointing, too.
Well, this was crap. I'm on a Uwe Boll movie run, I don't know why, I just thought it would be funny. This is much better than Alone in the Dark movies. It's nothing like the game, again. Where are the monsters? Where are the epic ship battles? It strays off the path too much to be an enjoyable adaptation. Don't see, unless desperate.
