I liked it
As game conversions go this is one of the better ones. Does a decent job of creating a good, creepy atmosphere. And certainly can't fault Radha Mithcell as the lead. They didn't go down the usual root in these things of converting a popular game by ignoring the game completely(uwe boll cough, cough). Biggest let down here is, the script or it could just be a case of poor editing as there seem to be missing elements to help explain what's going on. Overall 8/10

Would have been better if...
...they had removed all references to Silent Hill and made it a standalone film in its own right. Had it been so, it may have been a decent horror, as there are all the requirements for a film of this type. Instead, it tries to be part of the Silent Hill franchise by taking aspects of the first two games in the series and merging them, then adding a lot of things that were unnecessary. The result is a confusing mashup of gore and terror - if this didn't carry the Silent Hill name this would be fine - but it has lost the sheer psychological horrors that are the strength of the game. The music score is excellent, most of it (if not all) is lifted from the games (mostly SH2 I believe). If you haven't played a Silent Hill (mainly 1 & 2) then you may well enjoy it, but don't think that this represents the game. If you have played Silent Hill...well, you'll probably be better off sticking with the games :) On a side note, Sean Bean's fake American accent is the most appalling I've ever heard and he should be flogged publicly for even trying to pass that one off :)

Yeah I thought this was a good film. It did well as a conversion really - all the sicko gruesome stuff was in there, pretty darn revolting really and that makes it great. lol

For those of you.......
.....Slating this film - stating that it was not worth watching; I have only this to say to you. There have been very few films in the last fifteen years to have attained this quality! I have never been sad enough to spend half of my life in front of a TV playing on a games console, so I have no idea about the game! However the film certainly was worth the watch! 9/10 rating from me!

Silent Death
One of the worst films i've ever seen. 2 hours of my life i badly want back. It makes very little sense and isn'r scary. Do yourself a favour and don't bother. D.I.

8/10
True, not the best horror flick to hit the game/movie conversion, but definatly desrves more credit. The storyline/action is grotesque to say the least; but in a good way :D. If you've played Silent Hill or are remotely interested in watching through a 127mins of pure nightmareish drama then this is really worth a watch. 8/10 - Worth Watching :)

Not great
Not one of the better game/movie conversions (and they have a deserved repuation for being ropey to start with eh) - I'm not at all squeamish but the gratuitous OTT gore towards the end is hard to stomach too, considering the rest of the movie is so unremarkable...give it a miss..

Pretty horrible film compared to the games, and even if not comparing it with the games its boring, overacting, and the story aint the great.

is overlong, poor, boring and utterly ridiculous (and that's coming from someone who usually likes this kind of thing)!
