It was completely unwatchable.

Nearly every line of dialogue was purposeful, I felt captivated by the characters (especially Virgil), the animation was quite intense, and the action scenes were awesome.

This just makes the story hard to follow and, to be honest, it becomes really boring after a while.

The worst adaptation and yet the worst movie ever.

It's just neither entertaining nor satisfying enough to be considered something worth watching.

A modern interpretation of The great literary classic (Dante's The Inferno) written by (Dante Alighieri) and first published in the year 1314 this epic story of damnation, love and redemption is brought to us on screen in stunning animation by six different animation directors from around the world who have given us some of the best animated movies ever made from (Ghost in the Shell) to (Blood the last Vampire) each director giving us unique and terrifying visions of the nine circles of hell.

During the first part of the movie, the animation and the designs keep a good level, but as the story advances, it turns more generic and bland, being not much better than any average anime series.

Remarkable movie, highly recommended to those over 18, intense gore, some nudity, and horrific scenes make this a cult classic.

If you play the game first then watching the movie would probably feel dull versus the first hand experience you got from the game.

The animation follows the Japanese style with few movements and is entertaining even for those that do not know the game.

Sadly from here on, the animation takes a slow dive in quality.

The plot line is simple, and straight forward, but the way they execute the movie is very confusing.

The story was action packed.

Worst waste of time ever.

Throughout the linear and somewhat simplistic main story, the more intriguing back-story is fleshed out in flashbacks.

To get it worse, this is not even very funny to watch, being way too heavy-handed in order to enjoyable as a simple entertainment, but at the same time, it is way too banal to be considered as a serious work.

Boring as all the hells it represents, no story, no cadence, no nothing after an eternal wait.

Dante is only excuse for an experiment, nice and boring, revolutionary and nasty, with too many ingredients and an ambitious chaotic cook.

He goes to Hell, going through all nine levels(including the sewer one), engaging many creatures(most from other mythologies than the Christian one...

The animation styles used by each director gives us a stunning vision of the many circles of hell each with different styles, textures and art as Dante delves deeper and deeper into the inferno you feel like you are on the same journey never knowing what each circle of hell will hold as Dante fights demons the damned and his own sins made flesh.

Beatrice is even more boring, relegated as nothing more than a busty damsel-in-distress plot device.

Fascinating doesn't it?

Complex and intriguing themes that were hinted upon earlier in the film are discarded in favor of moving the action along.

A child in the body of a blood crazed warrior, dependent upon Vergil for help, yet often disregarding him by charging into many paradoxical fightscenes that are as boring as they are over quickly.

The Beatrice character is just plain and uninteresting in comparison with her literary counterpart, being just a typical damsel in distress.
