Slant Magazine
Silent Hill: Revelation fundamentally misunderstands the appeal its source material.
33
Some horror movies want to scare you witless, but Silent Hill: Revelation 3D just wants to beat you senseless.
30
Silent Hill is not a place you want to go, and that applies for moviegoers as well as this videogame adaptation's characters.
30
The film is nothing if not liberal with its bloodletting, which integrates cleverly at times with the 3-D: lopped fingers, for example, fly toward the audience. But personalities and plot are thumbnail sketches at best.

Los Angeles Times
There is a flamboyance to some of the imagery - Heather and her demonic doppelganger embrace on a flaming carousel - but no exuberance, no sense of wonder, fascination or enjoyment. Everything feels like a throwaway.
25
Stiff, episodic, and disjointed, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D replicates its source material all too faithfully.
20
Variety
A cheaper, cheesier sequel that's worse than its predecessor on every level (save being a half-hour shorter) and takes no special advantage of the stereoscopic process.

Boxoffice Magazine
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is the nadir of senseless seasonal cinema. But while Bassett's film struggles to say anything coherently, it gets the most important message across perfectly well: "Do not go to Silent Hill!"

Village Voice
With horror altogether absent and a plot drowning in insipid convolutions, it's a film whose early warning to Heather should be heeded: "Don't go to Silent Hill."
0
One step worse than most of these video game movies. It feels less like a game and more like what happens when you leave your PlayStation on and it becomes a kind of dim screensaver. If we had a controller in our hand, we would probably throw it at the screen.
