An atmospheric, disturbing and bloody movie, very true to video games. [Full review in Spanish]
January 22, 2010
Visually arresting but only sporadically enthralling.
April 29, 2009
It's one of the best video game adaptations I've seen in years.
January 15, 2008
Whilst not as atrocious as some other films that have opened this year, the truely woeful story and quality of Silent is saved only by its occasion moments of visual flair, and its all over effective creepy atmosphere.
October 31, 2007
When everything starts being explained, the mystery evaporates and the world of the game loses its eerie bafflement.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 14, 2007
The latest, most ambitious and perhaps least comprehensible video game adaptation in recent memory.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

If you like your nightmares served upfront without the clutter of dramatic structure, then Silent Hill should be your next stop.
June 15, 2007
although it is rarely if ever jump-out-of-your-seat scary, Silent Hill is an unremittingly creepy municipality of the mind where motherhood, mystery and madness have come home to stay.

Silent Hill starts out at point A and then goes so quickly, loudly and visually over-the-top that it flies completely off the rails into its own glorious weirdness.
September 8, 2006
Director Christophe Gans charges, hell-bent, right over the plot and winds up with not much more than an oppressive 125-minute running time.

More deadly than silent.

August 25, 2006
Over long with a muddled story and a gaggle of wasted talent, Silent Hill is a spectacular misfire.
August 23, 2006
As a fluke, I took my mom (also named Rose) to the screening. She doesn't like SF or horror and doesn't even know what a video game is, yet she ended up really liking it! How weird is that?

August 21, 2006
the closest you'll get to actually having a nightmare in a movie theatre outside of a midnight screening of David Lynch's Eraserhead.

August 19, 2006
There's absolutely nothing of merit here to discuss other than its loyalty to the original source material.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
July 13, 2006
While Gans admittedly shows us some pretty spooky stuff, his energy begins to flag somewhere around the 60-minute mark.
May 13, 2006
As a nightmarish vision of hell on earth, Silent Hill is a triumph of production and art design. As a coherent story, it's little more than a string of video game scenarios.

Silent Hill is like an endurance test to get to the "'truth', but it's ultimately a gyp because it still doesn't make sense when you get there.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 11, 2006
Just like the game, which is an achievement and a disappointment all in one.
