What to know

critics consensus

Silent Hill is visually impressive, but as with many video game adaptations, it's plagued by inane dialogue, a muddled plot, and an overlong runtime. Read critic reviews

    God this movie had promise. I've never played the games so was introduced to the very creepy and disturbing world of Silent Hill through the movie. Thankfully, you get to Silent Hill fairly quickly where things go bonkers pretty damn fast. The constant falling ash contributes to an eerie atmosphere that's just fantastic. When the creatures inspired by the video game show up with darkness, a civil defense siren and peeling walls/floors, your flight or fight instinct kicks in big time and you want the protagonists to GET THE FUCK OUT. Pyramid head is especially wicked. Unfortunately, the underlying story is very week and conventional, and there's a huge side-storyline that was apparently added at the last minute with Sean Bean looking for his wife and daughter. The studio gods worried there were only female characters in the movie (so?!?!). Unfortunately, that side plot adds nothing. Radha Mitchel rocks and is the "scream queen" of the 2000's (although thankfully she doesn't really scream, just moans balefully when horrified), as she starred in this, Pitch black, Rogue, and The Crazies.

    A weird and underrated horror flick, and arguably the only good film that's based on a video game released EVER. The end lost to me to some extent, but creature design and atmosphere more than makes up for it.

    It nailed to some extent the visual representation of some things of the famous videogame saga but it was destroyed by awful dialogues, bad pacing and a story that strayed too far from the games. True, it try to create something new, while using plot elements from the other games but it failed miserably at doing so. Case in point, usually the monsters on the games have some symbolism towards the protagonist you control. Here? They're just re-ashes (lol pun) of the games, barely being memorable and only showing up for a couple of seconds. A missed opportunity, since visually the movie is still beautiful and manages to create a good atmosphere and visual storytelling out of it but the rest is an inconsequent, barely understandable mess.

    Not very good at all. I mean, half the time I didn't really know what was going on. They didn't seem to properly explain anything. And I didn't understand half of the characters actions. Plus, the CGI was pretty bad at times. There was a few jump scares that got me. But I honestly was confused and bored most of the time. Dont waste your time on it.
