Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Review
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is the newest installment in the Silent Hill movie franchise. Based on the popular video game titles, the film follows an angst ridden teen named Heather as she attempts to learn more about a past clouded in fog. Things take a turn for the worst when Heather’s father goes missing, and it’s her job to venture into the world of Silent Hill to rescue him. This is one of the rare occasions when a movie adaptation actually follows the plot of its predecessor fairly closely. The few changes that were made to the plot and characters were minor, yet extremely important, as they tie the sequel to the first Silent Hill movie.
Given that Silent Hill: Revelation is a 3D movie, it could be expected to be over the top and cheesy; this is partially true. The movie begins with a stunning use of 3D effects: flecks of ash falling slowly toward the audience as a haunting soundtrack straight out of the games plays quietly in the background. This left everyone breathless and set an eerie mood for the rest of the movie. For the first half of the film, the 3D was done well and used in clever ways to signify the descent into the underworld of Silent Hill. By the second half of the movie, that was unfortunately no longer the case. The use of 3D and the dialogue became increasingly cheesy as the movie went on, which removed the audience from the atmosphere so carefully created at the top of the film. Another flaw was the use of too many computer generated images. When used sparingly, CGI can bring to life creatures that were never thought possible. However, there were some creatures created solely with the use of a computer, which broke the audience’s engagement and looked extremely unrealistic.
Despite containing so many horror movie cliches, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D was ultimately satisfying due to the high amount of detail that was included in the film. The movie played out much like a game in almost every way. When the script didn’t call for bad one-liners, the dialogue was very straightforward, and was reminiscent of video game characters giving the player insight into their world. The references didn’t stop there; Heather donned her signature white vest and wielded a rusty length of pipe as a weapon. The cinematics in the movie were extremely similar to those in the games, with one scene in particular standing out. The scene was of Heather consulting a map on the wall before looking around for a key and clues as if to solve a puzzle. Any fan of the Silent Hill games can testify that most of the game is spent doing just that.
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D should be seen with an open mind, as it does contain something for everyone. For those looking for a 3D movie to see with their friends this Halloween, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is an enjoyable movie for those who like a little bit of cheese every now and again. Those who love the video game franchise will certainly walk away from the theater with smile on their face and many details to discuss with their gaming friends. Overall, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is a fun scary movie, perfect for the season.
Enjoy, and Happy Halloween.
