I was really surprised at how good I found this. I was worried that it would be too...niche, for me, as I'm not into manga or anime and the likes. I just decided to try this on a whim as, while I haven't read the book or played the game, I know the gist of it and find it interesting. We get to follow Dante's journey through Hell to save his love Beatrice, getting a nice tour of the different locations in it.
Anyway, I thought this film was great, a couple of minor flaws, such as, as other reviews have said, the way the characters change with each different director. You'd think they would have met and decided on a look, but the main characters look completely different in different stages of the film, which is weird and a bit confusing, though I found it quite amusing how Beatrice's breasts got steadily bigger towards the end.
However, on the whole an exciting, well depicted story with decent plot and voice acting. Bravo.

I found this film to be quite refreshing and very interesting. I didn't know what to expect at first and was very intrigued by this release. Now before I go on I will say that this film will have a very cult following and may not be to everyone's taste but fans of the macabre, Anime and possibly Dante Alighieri fans will absolutely love this! I'll also say that a Bluray purchase is not nessessary as cel animated films pretty much look the best they can on DVD upscaled so you may want to DVD it. Id say the only real advantage with this is the sound.

This is an animated adaptation of Dante's first book in The Divine Comedy; Inferno. If you're not familiar with it, we follow Dante on his journey through hell to reclaim the soul of his lover, Beatrice from Lucifer (The Devil), he has to pass through the 9 circles of hell to reach her with the aid of his companion, the poet Virgil (Devil May Cry fans may start to understand things a bit better!)

The film is animated by four separate Japanese anime studios so the animation varies. You may start to see characters change and action scenes shot differently as you watch the film, I thought this was a nice idea and very original. If you are familiar with anime and manga and the style of it you will be at home with this and it will tick all the boxes. Please do not expect an Advent Children style of film as one reviewer already has and was extremely upset, this is naive and you will be disappointed if not surprised!

The animation is traditional Japanese animation or cel animation so you know what to expect immediately. For the laymen this is the oldest and most successful form of animation to date and is essentially a backbone for companies like Disney.

Format: DVD
Dante's Inferno is an animated tale based on the EA game of the same name. It chronicles Dante's descent through the 9 circles of Hell, guided by the poet Virgil, in an effort to reclaim his beloved Beatrice's soul whom the devil has claimed as his own.

Fantastically animated by the same animation houses responsible for animated greats such as The Animatrix & Dead Space:Downfall we see Dante struggle with his inner-sins as they are reflected by the specific circle he finds himself in. The visualisations of the characters shift as each animation-house takes over (there are 4 shifts) and this can be distracting as you try and re-identify who is who from the previous segment, however this is something that I, for one, am becoming more & more familiar with as it seems to be very prevalent in anime these days.

The action is tense and sporadic and fantastically animated, I was enthralled for the entire 85 minutes, despite never having played the game or read the original. Recommended for fans of Anime or even those who want to see an excellent execution of the Inferno story.

PROS:
- Brilliant story, which shows the levels of hell and is uncompromising in stating who ends up on which level of hell.
- Excellent characters which are fleshed out and the voice work is very good, especially for Dante and Beatrice
- Excellent animation, several different artists are used which means the main characters look slightly different on each level.

CONS:
- The characters being animated differently in each level can take you out of the film briefly.
But each new version of Dante Virgil and Beatrice is very well animated so its no loss.

Overall if your a fan of anime, dantes inferno, horror or a good storyline, buy this.
I wish more animated movies were made to this standard.

If you have played the game, you can safely ignore this flick. It is basically the same... same story, even the same sequences sometimes.
I have played the game, so this was boring for me. There was nothing new in it.

I cannot comment on how the movie feels if you have not played the game. If you have not, you migiht consider buying it since technically it was well done.

Where do Í start, it's an anime based on a the game which is again loosely based on the work of Dante Alighieri.

They decided to go with different directors with each chapter to give it a unique feel each time. This actually worked with Animatrix as it was a compilation of a few separate stories around Matrix which were done in various art styles but here it just collides with the whole feel of the anime and the game as this is supposed to be just one big journey through Hell in search of Beatrice.
It kind of gets dependent on whether you like that certain style or not, I for one liked some but there were others that I really had to kind of force myself to watch all the way through it without hitting fast forward.

At times it expended on the story a little bit with footage that wasn't shown in the game or was done a bit differently while at others it rushed things and threw you right into the next section.
A very good example would be Dante's Scythe which in the game he obtains by defeating Grim Reaper himself whereas in the anime he just literally finds it.
Now I'm well aware that gameplay and cutscenes are two different things and that they have to sacrifice things here and there or do some things differently but they could've done a bit more some of them. I for one was disappointed with the end battle as it felt unfulfilling and anti climatic to me but this is all just my opinion and everyone is entitled to their own.

It's not a bad anime in the long run and if you can find it cheap then go ahead and pick it up, if you can get past the differences in art styles then it can be a fun movie to watch.To me it deserves no more then 3 stars, I thought it was ok and I give it credit for trying but it just didn't do it for me.
