The average person will get hopelessly lost in all of it, but most gamers will eat it up. Sadly the movie falls into the love it/ hate it category and most Critic's seemed to hate it. I think you gamer grade of a B is about where I stand as well. It certainly is one of the better done videogame adaptations, but there is still room for improvement.
The movie seems to reward multiple viewings and from what I've read online having detailed knowledge of the series helps you enjoy it more. After watching this movie I felt compelled to watch it again and piece together the plot a little better. My second viewing was much more enjoyable since the movie made more sense.
Again great review Critic.
With a tagline like, "You die in the game, You die for real..." how can you resist!
[QUOTE=The Video Game Critic]What do you think about my review? As you can see, I liked how the movie looked, but I thought the story was a mess.
I think that you hit the nail on the head for the review. It was visually stunning, but the story fell so short of the Silent Hill game series that I felt more than a little cheated. I despised the "white light" exposition in the middle of the movie, but I think the worst part of the movie is the "super hero" approach the protagonist takes at the end when she challenges the cult. It's like a supernatural "Let My People Go" speech... I mean, give me a break!
