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.
