FILM REVIEW: Game adaptation proves silver-screen worthy



FILM REVIEW: Game adaptation proves silver-screen worthy
University Wire; 4/28/2006; Josh Williams

(OSU Daily Barometer) (U-WIRE) CORVALLIS, Ore. -- To those not familiar with the game, Silent Hill is a twisted town full of demons, darkness and anything that has ever haunted your dreams. Director Christophe Gans, who previously directed "Brotherhood of the Wolf," has brought this creepy nature to the theaters and gore is definitely on the menu.

The movie is mostly about Rose (Radha Mitchell) and the search for her daughter Sharon (Jodelle Ferland). Rose meets up with a cop, Cybil (Laurie Holden), and the two of them join forces to fight the evil that has kept Silent Hill in a death grip. Rose's husband, Christopher (Sean Bean), plays more of a minor role of finding out what really happened in the town of Silent Hill but the county cops keep him far away.Collapse )

SILENT HILL

So this mom named Rose (Radha Mitchell) and her husband (Sean Bean) are looking for their daughter, Sharon (Jodelle Ferland). They stumble into a foreboding place called Silent Hill, where all manner of weirdos emerge to thwart them. Game fans will appreciate the film's cool monsterish creations, but the movie never turns the video-game parareality into compelling film drama. It just seems like a tedious search for a really strange girl. The dialogue consists almost entirely of Rose saying, "Sharon? Sharon? Sharon?" You feel like calling out, "I don't think she's hearing you, lady." In the end, this isn't a drama, just someone's weird and really boring day. (R, 127 minutes) Contains violence, gore and profanity. Area theaters.

FILM REVIEW: 'Silent Hill' not so scary after all



FILM REVIEW: 'Silent Hill' not so scary after all

University Wire; 4/28/2006; Kristin Alto

(Daily Titan) (U-WIRE) FULLERTON, Calif. -- Unlike "Tomb Raider," movies based on video games aren't normally very good, but director Christophe Gans' film adaptation to "Silent Hill," the 1999 Playstation video game, was actually quite entertaining, and scary.

The film may have been much better if I had played the game before, at least I wouldn't have been so confused.Collapse )

Sharpe's Challenge (ITV1)

* LAST night's concluding half of Sharpe's Challenge was noisy enough to earn an Asbo for viewers who failed to turn the sound on the TV set to its lowest register.

Director Tom Clegg was staging a memorable battle scene and the 'Forlorn Hope' - the name the army in those days gave to the first troops into the attack ahead of the main force - charged into a breach in the walls of an Indian fortress and were duly cut down.

At the head of the mainly Indian no-hopers facing a hail of rifle fire supplemented by rockets and, to employ a technical term, great balls of fire, was a cherubic, red-coated ensign who looked about 12 years old: I did not see him fall, but suffice to say, he wasn't around in the aftermath of the victorious engagement.

The director also gave us sword fights quite up to Errol Flynn standards, pitting Sean Bean's Colonel Sharpe, masquerading as a deserter, against the fiendish villain of the piece, Toby Stephens's sneering, renegade Englishman, William Dodd.

Sharpe, of course, could have beaten even as fine a swordsman as Dodd, but was constrained by the need to preserve his cover.

Only later, with the battle won and the traitor to the British cause trying to flee with the jewels of Indian prince Khande Rao, did Sharpe exact bloody revenge, pinning Dodd to the throne he'd so coveted and exchanging a few triumphalist words before plunging the weapon into his heart.

'No messing about' was a motto that would have fitted either man, for Dodd had just speared his mistress, Madhuvanthi (Padma Lakshmi), like a delectable kebab.

All this crash, bang, wallop was not for viewers of a nervous disposition, but the rest of us will be hoping that ITV1 will not allow another eight years to pass before the next Sharpe adventure arrives on screen.

Mama mia! What a creepy predicament.


Mama mia! What a creepy predicament.

Newsday (Melville, NY); 4/24/2006

Byline: Jan Stuart

Apr. 24--(2 STARS) SILENT HILL (R). Some good, spooky visual effects enhance a truckload of malarkey as a terrified mother chases down her little girl in a ghost town. A good start, then it fizzles. With Radha Mitchell. 2:07 (strong horror violence and gore, disturbing images, some language). At area theaters. Far be it for me to dispense advice to mothers of little girls with vexing mental health issues.Collapse )

Football: TONGE OF PRAISE; Late strike earns Blades a point as party goes on.(Sport)

The Mirror (London, England); 4/24/2006

Luton 1 Sheff Utd 1

SEAN BEAN reckons Neil Warnock is the man to shake up the Premiership and make it interesting again.

The Hollywood star is a director at his beloved Bramall Lane and was ecstatic when the Blades secured their return to the top flight last week after dropping out in 1994.

He witnessed another round of celebrations here as 2,000 United fans packed into Kenilworth Road, many in fancy dress.

Michael Tonge's 89th-minute free-kick grabbed a point for Warnock's side after they fell behind to Ahmet Brkovic's 72ndminute strike.

Bean lived his dream by once starring as a Sheffield United player in the 1995 film When Saturday Comes. He also has a tattoo which reads: '100 per cent Blade'. Now he believes Warnock is the man to awaken the Premiership from its slumbers and deliver a short, sharp shock to the likes of Jose Mourinho and Rafa Benitez.Collapse )

Evening Chronicle (Newcastle, England); 4/22/2006

Sean Bean stars in Sharpe's Challenge on ITV1 tomorrow and Monday

Nearly a decade after Sean Bean's big break as rugged swashbuckler Sharpe, the star says he was delighted to dust off his sword and get back in the saddle to reprise the role that kick-started his Hollywood career.

"Just doing the role and getting the opportunity to play that kind of leading character has always been something that has stayed with me because it made such a huge impact on my life and my career. Sharpe was something that never really went away," says the 47-year-old.Collapse )
