I had high hopes for this movie, especially given the relatively good job filmmakers did with the film adaptation of the original Silent Hill, so it is with great disappointment that I write this. Anyone who is a fan of the Konami series has likely anticipated a film adaptation of Silent Hill 3, arguably the best game among the group. For those who have not played Silent Hill 3, here's the intro:
The cinematography is good, and much of the set design captures the feel of the game very well, but those are the only redeeming factors I could find--try as I might.
Silent Hill: Revelation is plagued with mediocre acting, awful dialog, and a script nearly completely lacking in structure. It does no justice to the game is is based on, offering instead one pointless visual after the next--creatures and distorted people at nearly every turn--with no real solid story to hold those images together. What results is a mess of a movie, one I must regretfully rate two stars.
