Review in a Nutshell: A misguided attempt to bring the plot of the films in line with the narrative of the video games, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D tries for grotesque horror and fails spectacularly with hilarious results. Few films have made me laugh this hard while attempting to scare or unsettle me.
Paul is right on the money about the Latin roots of obrigado. Although the usage is quite comparable to “thank you”, arigatou is derived from the Old Japanese arigatashi, which is found in the first written Japanese chronicles (~720). Portuguese first arrived in the late 1400s, IIRC.
As I call this movie “Silent Hill: Heat Gun Melted Plastic in 3D” I am in total agreement about the suspense and the showing too much in this movie.
Also I think that I would like someone to take this whole cast and do a proper version.
If you go by some people’s definition of Silent Hill’s alternate reality is actually a form of limbo and death and escaping it is coming back to life. Therefore Mr Bean did die in the end, or more techinically when he was dragged to Silent Hill.
I’m surprised neither of you took the movie to task for its appalling amount of exposition. To me the dialogue often seemed like someone in the production was so afraid of the audience not understanding what was happening that they decided to have the characters explain everything, clarifying nothing. Do you think the constant exposition helped to kill any sense of mystery or tension the movie could have created?
