The movie itself is wonderful. The effects are superb, the creatures are amazingly well done. I could wax poetic for ages on the subtleties of the story, costuming (Rose's dress gets progressively redder as the movie goes on for instance), and effects but other reviews have done that already. What I will do is extend a caveat with regards to the blu ray edition. The wide-screen regular DVD version has a TON of special features that go over nearly every possible aspect of the movie and really take you behind the curtain to see everything there is to see. The blu-ray have NONE of these. The blu-ray version is literally JUST the movie and that's it. In my case that doesn't really matter as I had the DVD version already and only picked up the blu-ray version because I just recently got a blu-ray player so the improved quality was the whole reason for my purchase. I wanted to warn anyone buying for the first time that if you want the behinds the scenes stuff, you'll want to get the DVD...
This was such a tragic movie, but the special effects were AMAZING!! Especially the Dark Nurses, and Pyramid Head.
There's one thing i have to point out? I'm not a lesbian or anything - but Laurie Holden played the sexiest cop i've ever seen in my life! She was fit, beautiful, and didn't scream.. Not like the Radha Michell character that screamed so darn much, it was getting pretty annoying.
I mean, seriously. There are other ways of ladies can protect themselves without opening their mouths wider than an air-dam and sounding off like a siren every 10 mins. Even the "Ash Children" who were also screaming when SHE started screaming finally had to give up and run off in the bowling alley scene. It took me a while to realize, it was actually because the time of darkness had ended temporarily and the world had to change back to light. To be honest, i thought the "Ash children" were "out-screamed" decided "NO CONTEST" and went...
Yes this is one of those movies based on a video game, so what?.. Almost all the movies are based on books, which is basically someone imagination. I would classify this as a horror movie, and boy is there horror. I judge a movie by more than just a plot, I cannot stand people who tell me about a movie, or make an online review, and talk about how great the plot is and historical significance and bla, bla.. and then when I watch it I cannot get over the fact that either makeup of the actors is overdone, not good enough, or when they put the Wrong looking actor for the role. i.e. Steven Seagal as Superman.. get it?... totally screws up the movie for me..
Now, this movie may not have the greatest most interesting plot (its very short) but, IMO, EVERYTHING else is pretty much spot on. One of the other reasons why I just dont go to the movies anymore, is cause all of the movie these days, whether its horror,thriller,comedy, are ALL predictable, which just screws up my interest...
