craig-252 » Agree 100% with agentmatheus: This is, hands down, the best VG adaption bar none! Seriously, it truly is like you are living the game. Granted, several characters have been changed, but that's to be expected. (Having a woman as the main protagonist, ensure's the main character is more vulnerable, than if it were a man). The set-pieces with the creatures are even more disturbing than their VG counterparts – I kid you not! The production design is truly superb and you get the feeling that Silent Hill really does exist.
If I had to nitpick, it would be that they didn't include any puzzle elements in the film, as per the game; it could have been cool to have Rose solving some mad brainteaser, but you can fully understand that they didn't include this sort of thing (well, apart from her memorizing the hospital floor-layout), otherwise it could have slowed down the whole pace of the film.
I was so skeptical about this movie, as traditionally, Game-To-Movie adaptations are, let's face it, crap! – But they have completely pulled it off, and I await a second installment with heavily baited breath.
Again, it really is the best horror movie in years! HIGHLY recommended.
Check this film out as soon as you can.
