Mother is god in the eyes of a childBy JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 10 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Silent Hill is almost certainly the most accurate game adaptation produced to date. Some people might dispute that many story fundamentals have been distorted from the game, and this is true to an extent, but Silent Hill has simply never been about storyline: it's always been about ambience, environment, and pushing limitations.
In the film, Rose Da Silva acts against her husband's wishes by deciding to take her troubled daughter, Sharon, to Silent Hill due to frequent sleep-walks and mutterings of the town's name. On the way, a figure unexpectedly steps onto the road, forcing Rose to swerve, crashing and getting knocked unconscious. She awakens to find Sharon missing and wanders into the fog-choked town of Silent Hill to find her daughter.
It is pure good entertainment pumped up with plenty of terrifying action without being weighed down by a heavy plot. The acting is fairly average for a horror flick but the effects are stunning. This movie will terrify and on occasion startle. Silent Hill is affluent with astounding effects that ensures the film to be an absolutely mind blowing adventure.
This dramatic thriller presents a chance to give your adrenal glands a good workout.

crap and boringBy Natalie_ (3 reviews) , 09 Dec 2013I thought this film was the worst film I've seen in a long time. It was boring!! Wouldn't advise watching it, I'd rather watch school of rock to be honest, it's got a better story to it
MY FAVOURITE MOVIE TO DATE . . .By ZenZii (192 reviews) from Preston , 06 Dec 2013This movie was amazing the graphics, ambience and whole set up was brilliant. Didn't watch this film when it first came out, but wish I did then maybe I could've watched a few more hundred times!!! This beat Alien v's Predator my old favourite movie which now moves to a challenging second place now. I have not played the game but really want to now. Sure it can't be better than the movie - can it??? I love Rahda Mitchell who plays Rose the mother of Sharon her troubled daughter. Sean Bean (brilliant too) plays the father. The scenes, shots, photos all absolutely fabulous, amazing movie don't miss out, watch now x x x
liked itBy vickig0306 (429 reviews) from Halifax , 19 May 2013I have never played the game but people tell me its just like the film which I enjoyed. Loved the ending. very clever
Monsters...AAAH!...Not boring at all (smile)By ClaireDior (34 reviews) from Kilbirnie , 15 Nov 2012Wonderful, I just bought it off the internet.. I know I can not name the site.
I loved, I have played the game as well. The evil wee girl was brilliant..loved the whole thing..recommend to anyway who enjoys way out films...like I do...what is the point in watching a film it if isn't way out .. I say...I like to see things in films I do not see in every day life.. and this was one of them....very close to the game I played years ago too...from what I remember.
Better as the gameBy amydays (19 reviews) , 04 Nov 2012Some aspects of the film are a bit ridiculous, I won't give spoilers, but there are things you can get away with in a game that just doesn't come across in a film very well. I was more scared playing the game.
