3.0 out of 5 stars A Slight Nod in Dante's Direction... [3.5 Stars] February 28, 2010
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There are a couple things you should know before deciding to view this movie: 1) Instead of "Dante's Inferno" a more fitting title would be "A Gentle Nod in the General Direction of Dante's Inferno"; and 2) It's explicit. And by "explicit" I mean there is brazen nudity, unapologetic violence with gushing blood, and man-eating genitalia (I kid you not).

If you're still with me, that means you're open to experiencing an interesting, gory, and twisted animated tale about a soldier on a quest through the nine circles of Hell to rescue the love of his life. Dante, having returned home from fighting God's war, finds everyone he knew--including his love Beatrice--slaughtered. He then watches her soul snatched into the jaws of Hell after she (apparently) made a deal with the Devil and lost (through no fault of her own). Thus begins the quest. Along the way, Dante meets his guide, Virgil, and learns the fate of (and is attacked by) all the sinners writhing in agony--absolving a few along the way.

Having read The Divine Comedy a couple of times (The Inferno about five), it was difficult getting past the *liberties* taken with the overall story, but I could see why they were taken--watching a frightened middle-aged poet sojourning through the underworld with an old ghost and chit-chatting with various dead people wouldn't be nearly as entertaining as a hot young warrior lopping off heads every few minutes and being chased by lustful women with carnivorous nether-regions.

The animation is beautiful and done well, Anime with Western influences, if a bit inconsistent since there were six directors with six different styles. My main complaint however comes with the pacing and dialog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have read the book, have watched this film February 10, 2010
Format:DVD
I have to say, with some amount of guilt in my voice that I really did enjoy this film. My expectations were pretty low to start, so maybe my surprise that the story had real content and had many elements of the book actually incorporated have lead to an overly positive review. That said, it was a pretty good movie in its own right. I would just like to also point out that this is a film that persons under sixteen probably should not be allowed to watch. The artists and writers for the film did a very good job portraying Hell.

I doubt that any person who reviews this film will have anything bad to say about its visuals which are indeed, fantastic. Each character in this story had a good deal of thought put into how his or her character was designed, and I think that it was this that was the main payoff of the film. All of the different creatures of the nine levels of Hell were great, many of them imagined in ways that I would never have considered. The levels of Hell, though imaginatively realized were however, quite similar to how they were described in the book and this could be considered either a bonus for purists or a con for those looking for a few more surprises.

The plot which is what I was really concerned would be lost in this film is actually, despite a large degree of artistic license, preserved fairly well so that perhaps a new group might become interested in Divine Comedy. That being said, while it may appear a gory action movie many of the subtle themes of redemption are still here and the film may perhaps require a second viewing to be fully understood as many of the more violent scenes overshadow the more dramatic for sheer memorability.

I am not usually one for anime, cartoons based on video games, video games or adult themed movies but this film gets my sign of approval.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good February 10, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Featuring multiple animation styles, this adaptation of the video game released by Electronic Arts is a surprisingly good and horrific tale. Dante's Inferno tells the story of Dante, a crusader who returns home only to find his beloved Beatrice murdered, and her soul in the posession of Lucifer himself. As Dante plunges through the Nine Circles of Hell, it is slowly uncovered just how and why all this happened. Featuring some wonderful voice acting, a great score, an buckets of blood and gore; Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic is a pure blast. Though its ending is pretty underwhelming compared to the rest of the film as a whole, and the final animation style comes off as too cartoony compared to the styles that came earlier, this is still a worthwhile endeavor regardless, even if you have little desire to play the video game. All in all, if mature-themed animation is your thing, Dante's Inferno should be right up your alley.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gory, Grotesque, Good, but NOT Great April 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Reasons to watch:
+ Awesome animation - from all the artists
+ Interesting storyline
+ Cool if you have surround sound

What will make you wince:
- Done by SIX directors/artists all with completely different styles.
- Difficult to distinguish characters after a director change
- Timing sucks
- It's not really Dante's Inferno, just based on the characters or story or something...

You Might like:
= Lots of gross, gory violence
= nudity
= unappealing language
= not for children

3.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent Directors make for inconsistent film October 12, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic is based on the recent video game from EA and Visceral games. Dante Alighieri is a knight who has returned home from the Holy Crusades to find his father and wife murdered. As his wife's soul floats to Heaven, it is intercepted by Lucifer, who drags her down to Hell. Dante must follow down into the depths of the netherworld, battling through the nine circles of Hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice.

The film follows the path of the game closely...perhaps too closely. While it's fun to battle through the legions of Hell, fighting monstrous boss characters and absolving heretics of their sins, watching it isn't quite so fun. As in the game, Dante is aided by the spirit of Roman poet Virgil who guides him on his journey, which basically consists of one battle after another, some sage advice from Virgil, and Lucifer taunting Dante.

The film is told in segments with each representing a circle of Hell. In all, there are five different animation studios who worked on the film including Dong Woo Animation (Justice League Unlimited), Studio Manglobe (Samurai Champloo), Film Roman (Hellboy Animated), JM Animation, and Production I.G. With so many different styles and Directors, the film suffers from a lack of consistency both in terms of animation style and characterization. Some segments have a strong Anime look to them which doesn't work well with the Gothic/Medieval setting of the film. Dante himself looks decidedly different in the various styles, appearing alternatively has a hulking knight to a lithe martial artist.

The film failed to improve on the thick-witted personality Dante shows in the game. He has little to say outside of shouting, "Where's Beatrice!" Or "I must save Beatrice!
