You've read our take on
Silent Hill, now it's time to sum up what the film critics are saying. Currently, Metacritic has posted 14
reviews, which average out to a 29/100. For the record, this is the last time we will ever —
EVER — get our hopes up for a movie adaptation of a video game.
- Chicago Sun-Times (38/100) - "My damn brain lit up too much."
- The New York Times (10/100) - "[Wraps] up like the outrageously overwrought fantasy of a French movie nerd obsessed with horror ... who has been given obscene amounts of money to adapt a video game." [Nathan Lee]
- San Francisco Chronicle (0/100) - "Nobody gets naked, which on second thought may be a good thing — because when a movie features people getting their skin ripped from their bodies, it pretty much kills the mood." [Peter Hartlaub]
