I went and saw SH last night and I really enjoyed it. I knew it was a game going in and it played through like a game, but you probably wouldn't know it if you weren't a gamer.

I agree with Tr0n about many parts of the movie. I hope the DVD has the stuff from the 'cutting room floor'.

There is a big story to tell and if you do no pay attention to the movie you'll miss a lot of it. I do not think that you could have really removed anything from the movie, but an additional 15-30 minutes for telling the story would have been nice.

This movie has atmosphere! The filmography deserves an award in my opinion. To see it out of a theater is going to cause you to loose some of the mood. It needs to be watched in a dark quiet room.

There are a couple plot holes that I might have missed or they botched. Mainly in the timing for things, but I hope the DVD will sort it out. I'll be purchasing it.

The initial cut of the film was over 210 minutes. Tristar made Christophe Gans cut it down to the 125 minute run time we have now.

Then I can only hope the DVD is the full length. The more I think about the movie the more I want to see if again (which is rare for me)

Wow, that was a fantastic movie. I mean, yeah I've played the games, but I'm no fanboy.

Altogether I would say as a stand-alone horror, it was great. As others have said, with a the extra 30 or more minutes from an uncut edition would help, but I think it has a great story as is. It helps if you've played the games, but it is not a pre-requisite at all. My non-gaming friends got it just fine, and were of course very intrigued.

Whew, good ending too.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

Sadly, the DVD doesn't have anything extra added back from the story, but it was fun to watch again.

I saw Silent Hill sitting next to a creepy retarded guy who kept gasping for breath, shreiking, and standing up and touching himself. So I leaned over and said, "Micheal Jackson? Is that you?" But no, it really was a just some random retarded guy, and for the entire movie he was creeping me out.

Needless to say, fun times.

You didnt ask if he was Michael Jackson at all did you?


Essentially that was a lie.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

i didn't like how they pointed out that they put a bum on the pyramid-head costume...i didn't like that fact itself, but before they mentioned it , i hadn't noticed :-\
other than that, yeah, they were cool

A bum what? I thought Pyramid Head was really cool, now what did I miss?

Good movie by the way. Suspenseful and I, at least, couldn't see things coming.
