Format: Blu-ray
The Blu-ray edition of Dante's Inferno is a great collection of anime shorts adapting the first part of medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri's epic Divine Comedy. The 88 minute movie links the shorts seamlessly together and all that tell's you that you have shifted to a new director is a change in animation style.

The animation is all well done but some segments are better then others. One of the segments is directed by Japanese director Shuko Murase of Ergo Proxy fame. Sadly the animation does not warrant Blu-ray 1080p treatment and would likely look as good on a standard DVD. This edition comes with scant extras as well with simply an animatics segment on some of the key charcters and an admittedly well done trailer for the EA game of the same title. They could have done much more with the Blu-ray format.

What stopped me from giving the disk three stars is the superb writing and voice acting. Mark Hammill (Luke Skywalker in Star Wars episodes IV-VI) is a very talented and experienced voice actor and he was a great choice to be featured in the disk. The music and sound (in Dolby 5.1) is also well done.

At the end of the day it's a great watch and you will likely watch it many more times than once. A warning - there is some nudity but it is not explicit. There is an intense amount of violence and gore as well. The disk comes unrated but would likely receive a Restricted rating.

3.0 out of 5 stars A book, made into a video game, made into a movie....directed like the animatrix. Hmmmm.... July 28 2016

Well this was an intersting cartoon movie. It does keep up with a good amount of the plot points and events of the game, it misses the mark on some of the elements that made tge game great and that made the video game intersting. It does feature some of the enemies you know if you've played the game, but it doesn't feature all the bosses or plot points featured in it. The movie kept some of the dialog, but rewrites some of the events as you can tell the many directors and film studios wanted to add their creative vision to the art styles, events, and dialog. This subtracts from you getting comfortable with the charactors, as after a few segments, everone looks somewhat different to oddly different from thier appearance in the first segment. The music is straight from the game, which is a necessity as the soundrack was very moody and impactful, but this leads to another downfall. That is that the environments are a let down compared to the tracks excluding the ction sequences. In the game, the musical composition wasn't just written to reflect the dramatic moments, but to stir your emotions with the epic scenery. To paraphrase the game makers,"We wanted the environment of hell to be the main character. It is made of human souls, vast,dramatic, and disturbing." They also composed the music to emphasize this as well. The voice acting was pretty good, but as the cartoon was made for foreign audiences first (though the game was primarily made by an American company for American audiences first) not all of the dialog syncs with the mouth movements. This IS NOT a bad movie, but it could have been so much more if it was better thought out, with one director, and stayed with some of the origional elements such as how Dante obtains the scythe weapon. Oddly enough, it is not stolen away from the grim reaper, but taken from one of the run of the mill hell minions, which is pretty lame compared to the game. It also would have been awesome to have Dante dueling the reaper for it like in the game, instead of what they did here. For me...it fell flat and left me shaking my head at a lot of moments. My suggestion...rent it don't buy it, but it is definitely worth watching a few times.

I have been a fan of Dante Alighieri for many years. With that being said, the similarities between the book and the anime are far-fetched, but i still enjoyed it none the less. The story in some ways did stick to the basis of the manuscript, a mans journey through the tortures hell and in the end to come face to face with the devil. Now with that original concept added with a templar knight's "warrior skill" you'll have the overview of this anime. Besides being a fan of classical literature, i am also a fan of anime and i can appreciate them both equally on there seperate terms. Dante's Inferno(anime) had a great anime based story, full of action, drama and good imagery. What made this anime a true delight was the different animation styles by some of the greatest anime artist around. All n' all if you enjoyed animes such as: afro samurai, sword of the stranger, vampire hunter d blood lust, trinity blood, samurai 7, spawn(animated series) and samurai champloo you'll greatly appreciate this one. Donot expect it to be entirely like the book, but still i recommend to any anime fan.
