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.

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.

There are visual images here, I think, that would have had the historical Dante Alighieri smiling and taking notes, for he was a man so open to intellectual stimulation of all sorts that scholars are willing to classify him as a Renaissance poet even though he lived smack dab in the middle of the Middle Ages. He was literally hundreds of years ahead of the whole continent in which he lived. All on his own he re-imagined the afterlife for the Catholic Church. He made himself the hero of a journey into through Hell, basically putting himself right up there on the same stage with Christ and the Virgin Mary and God, and the Pope was like, Amen to that. Do you dig that? The man was fascinating, passionate, a genius. Italian.

The real bait and switch here is that instead of Dante's inferno, this is a weird mishmash of Grimm's Fairy Tales, Japanese Anime and American Horror. Worst of all, there's not a trace of Italy in it. It's as though you transplanted some wonderful Mediterranean palm into the middle of a cold English field and watched it perish overnight. It's obvious that a good degree of historical research went into this, so why-oh-why turn Italian Dante the poet into some crusader from far to the north. Is this some sort of focus group decision? Are we ashamed of Dante's Italian heritage, his preference for the pen over the sword?

It's especially confounding when you see that Dante's Virgil is there playing the exact same role as he did in Dante's Inferno, so much so that it's like a cut and paste job that clearly does nothing to enhance all the original elements of the new Dante. I'm sorry, but who CARES about Virgil. Nobody reads Virgil today unless they've already read Dante, so why even bother to keep him around.
