Any of you familiar with the poem Date's Inferno?  Well I just watched on Netflix and animated interpretation of it and a very poor one at that.  The original poem tells of Dante's journey through the nine circles of Hell to reunite with his beloved Beatrice.  But the film shows his journey through Hell to SAVE Beatrice from Satan!!!  Talk about artistic license.

The film shows Dante as a knight in the Crusades.  But the poem didn't tell what Dante's occupation is, as far as I remember it.

Another thing, the film shows Dante fighting the demons of Hell and some shades.  Even relieving the suffering of certain shades like his mother.  But the poem didn't show Dante fighting anyone.  He doesn't have a sword or scythe with him and he doesn't wrestle demons.  He just tours Hell with Virgil's guidance.

It really seemed the makers of this film took artistic license to appeal to as many people as possible.  Well it failed to appeal to me.  It doesn't go on my top ten list of the worst films ever made.  But if any of you really want to risk venturing to see this film, all I can say is this:  Forget the original poem if you know it and Good luck in finding any enjoyment in it.

Do some fact checking here. 

The cartoon Dante's Inferno (not Date's) is actually based on a videogame which was loosely inspired by the poem.  The poem itself is public domain, and the author is long dead, so there's nobody left to get bent out of shape about it not being accurate.

 Correct in that the animated film is based on the video game and not the actual poem. (Funny enough, the film takes several liberties with its source material-at this point it was almost a re-imagining of a re-imagining.)  It was a game a lot of people wrote off because they thought it to be just a God of War clone-which I admit it totally is. But it was a good GOW clone. Much better then GOW 3 which was I played about the same time. Dante's Inferno had much better art direction and a protagonist I could actually sympathize with, as apposed to Kratos, whom at that point  I had lost any sympathy I might have once had for the character.

The film in question I thought was in poor quality.  I'm not a big fan of anime to begin with, but if Iwas this would not be a film I would use to introduce people to it. There where segments that just ugly, poorly done, and even a few scenes where the animation was reused (leading to some odd lip syncing moments).  I know the idea was that it was several different directors doing different segments-but this lead to some wildly different looks that was jarring, and in some cases kind of funny. Like when Dante is in one moment an almost fully armor clad knight and in the next is a bear skin wearing, long haired barbarian.

And yes, I have read the original poem, long before I ever played the game or saw the animated film.

Yes things appeal to me.  You apparently never read my post about Rosemary's Baby.

Does any movie still closely to the work like rubber cement? If so, just how boring is it?
