An animated epic,
This review is from: Dante's Inferno [DVD]  (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.
