[BD Review] Evan Dickson’s Thoughts On ‘Silent Hill: Revelation 3D’!

Silent Hill Revelation 3D

While I personally am a fan of Christophe Gans’ 2006 Silent Hill, I absolutely despise Michael J. Bassett’s cinematic turd Solomon Kane. It has always come as a shock to me that he was hired to direct the high profile Silent Hill sequel that horror fans have been demanding for several years. While I never want a movie to be bad, it doesn’t shock in me in the least bit that Open Road’s Silent Hill: Revelation 3D isn’t very good. At least Evan Dickson didn’t hate it…

Even if we assume that Silent Hill: Revelation is a complete success in terms of world creation (which I doubt, it’s surprisingly small in scope with much of it taking place in a warehouse/prison type environment), it’s still a mess of a movie. And not an enjoyable one.

    I really wanted to love this movie. I tried so hard. But it’s just not good.

    i didn’t love it as much as the 1st film but it was VERY good! Adelaide is superb in this! she’s fantastic. i can’t say enough good things about her and her performance.

    PH wasn’t overused. i liked the fight between him & The Missionary at the end. Radha’s one scene was brief but very well done and emotional. i like that (SPOILER)

    Vincent was able to be with Heather at the end.

    the carousel/fire/dark Alessa part was excellent. the spider mannequin was VERY good and creepy. Leonard’s monster self was nurse-ish (in the face) and VERY cool.

    i give this a 8 out of 10. i gave the first movie a 9 out of 10.

    I just got in from SHR. And I was one of the few people that loved the first one. As an overall fan of the SH franchise, I do love how they stuck to the source material, even with the changes added.
    One aspect of it I didn’t care for was the way the story seemed forced, and the search for the second half of the seal was also a bit odd pacing for a movie, works in videogame form, but not film.
    THe single scene with Radha Mitchell from the first movie was nice, and a great way to bridge the gap between movies.
    And the fight at the end was cool but reminded me a bit of RE:Apocalypse, along with the one location shot that was used in RE:Retribution was funny as well.

    I really liked it. I loved how they continued the story from the first and *SPOILERS AHEAD* left it open so that Harry could possibly return in the sequel as the main character; if they make enough money, of course. I also loved the way they did the reality-flashing-to-Silent Hill sequences before Heather fully transported to Silent Hill. The movie wasn’t as good as the first, but it still had some awesome moments and story. Something’s telling me I’ll like it even more the second time around. I agree with djblack1313 in giving it an 8/10.

    I loved it… worthy sequel even if it’s not quite as good as the first.

    The lead actress looks exactly like she was ripped from some Japanese Horror Game. Everything about her screams SH or RE protagonist. Her eyes, hair, etc. I don’t know how they did it.

    I didn’t like it as much as the first movie, but I did enjoy it. Lots of cool visuals, and they paid great tribute to it’s source material…Silent Hill 3. Lots of little nods to the whole franchise actually, with two just in the final few minutes even. I would love to see a third movie, but I have a feeling that will never happen.
