(Jamie Foxx, Gerard Butler, et al / DVD / NR / (2009) 2010 / Starz - Anchor Bay Entertainment)
Overview: 'Dante’s Inferno: An Animated Epic' will take you on a harrowing trip through Hell as Dante braves the forces of evil, slaying demons and monsters of extraordinary imagination, all to save his love Beatrice, from the clutches of Hell’s master - Lucifer.
DVD: 'Dante's Inferno' is an incredible animated film! One of the best animated movies I've seen in a very long time, and I watch a lot! I've heard a lot of praise and some critism for this movie... sure are NOT anime fans, if you dont like this masterpiece!
This is a beautiful film to behold, with a story that is exciting, moving, at times ferocious, and deeply layered. It has the story of the game, so any logic faults lie in the game story itself, but all in all, the story is wonderful. A knight searches for the soul of the woman he loves... and what we perciece as a hero at first, gradually unfolds until we realize Dante is really a bad person, not the atypcial hero we think from the begining.
Everyone should check this out. It's really good for an animated film!! One of the best I've seen in a long time, and I'm not even a big video game fan!
'Dante's Inferno' is also made me think. About evil, morality, the nature of god, all that stuff. It is thoughtful and intelligent, with a story that makes sense. A lot of the animes you watch make no sense whats so ever, but this made perfect sense all the way through. There was a bit too much fighting, and it seemed to move a bit too breakneck fast for me. But I was watching every moment in anticipation.
This film is interesting because it's all about point of view. Dante is in his own hell. Beatrice is in her hell, and even the devil has a point of view here. He feels betrayed by God. He thinks god is the true evil, because it made him, then punished the devil... but God made evil knowing it would rebel. It made me think quite a bit, which rarely anything does now-a-days.
An AWESOME film! A bit gory for my tastes, but it was very moving, exciting, and just plain COOL! [AM] This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs, and comes with the Special Features of:
