Although being the same age as Heather / Sharon during the shooting of Silent Hill: Revelation, actress Jodelle Ferland, who portrayed Sharon, Alessa and Dark Alessa in Silent Hill (2006), was never contacted to reprise her role as Sharon, due to Bassett wanting the older version of Sharon to look more like her game counterpart, and less like the first film's version of her. Because of this, Sharon's teenage version bears very little facial resemblance to her child appearance. See more »

You think there is a difference between dreams and reality?
What happened to the small talk? "What's your favourite band"? "Do you facebook"?
Fuck facebook. Do you?
I don't really think about it.
Everybody think about it.
Not me. Look my life is complicated enough. You should talk to my grandfather. It's all he ever thinks about. Drove him crazy.
It's driving me crazy.

I went into Silent Hill: Revelation hoping to be proved wrong. Sure, I knew the move was going to be a bit gimmicky (being shot in 3D and all), and the trailers hadn't looked too promising, but as a fan of the Silent Hill series, I thought that maybe I'd still enjoy the film. Unfortunately, this movie is riddled with so many flaws and defects that it completely falls flat.
The movie is based on the third silent hill game, following Heather Mason as she tries to learn more about her past but more importantly just survive as a series of nightmarish events draw to Silent Hill. The movie tries to follow the plot of the game, but deviates frequently in ways that make little sense. The game's plot was already somewhat muddled and disjointed, and its translation into a screenplay has only made the plot more nonsensical and difficult to follow. Events seem to occur at random, characters are left underdeveloped, and there is no logical progression to the story. The film flounders around for a bit before leaving viewers with an unsatisfactory climax which tapers off with an awkward closing scene.
The acting is pretty poor, and the screenplay isn't much better. Dialogue is stilted and awkward. Carrie-Anne Moss and Kit Harington in particularly do a very poor job of delivering their lines, and are completely unconvincing. To be fair, Sean Bean and Adelaide Clemens do a half-way decent job considering the lines they are given. But overall the acting and writing are both beneath what you would expect from your run-of-the-mill horror flick.
The special effects are pretty well done, and the 3D does make for some interesting moments. Silent Hill's iconic falling ash and dense fog in particular benefit from this treatment. Most of the time though, the 3D is just used to amplify the movies considerable gore. While the special effects are pretty solid, they just don't make up for the poor plot and dialogue which really are sub-par, even by horror movie standards.
I really wanted to like this movie, but even as a fan of the material I found myself unable to appreciate it. My advice is to save your money and rent it when it comes out on DVD.
