A darkly comedic travelogue of the underworld - set against an all-too-familiar urban backdrop of used car lots, gated communities, strip malls, and the U.S. Capitol. And populated with a contemporary cast of reprobates, including famous - and infamous - politicians, presidents, popes, pimps. And the Prince of Darkness himself.

After fighting in the Crusades for three years, Dante rides back home to his family estate to reunite with his beloved Beatrice and his father. Dante sees a rider following him, but out of the blue, the man vanishes with no trace. When he arrives home, he sees the servants slaughtered, his father murdered and Beatrice near death. When her soul is going to the heaven, Lucifer takes Beatrice to Hell, telling her that Dante has betrayed her. Dante meets Virgil who guides him to Hell, and the poet explains that Beatrice had a bet with Lucifer that Dante would be faithful to her while in the holy war. In return, Lucifer would protect Dante and bring him back home safe and sound. Upon arrival in Hell, Dante learns that he needs to cross nine circles to reach Lucifer ad on his painful journey, he discovers who doomed his family to suffer in Hell.Written by

Tell me of your life on Earth, great poet. I know your deeds, but not the man you were.
Publius Vergilius Maro was my name. I was the son of a commoner. And though I died more than a dozen years before the birth of Christ, I foretold his coming in my works.

a disturbing film. for one as me, far by video games, admirer of Dante Divina Commedia, expecting a reasonable adaptation of the old book for a new generation. every expectation was destroyed, in precise manner. and he only verdict remains - it is the perfect choice for the fans of video game. nothing bad but almost predictable. this Inferno did part from a large genre who propose myths and legends and classic stories in a manner so bizarre , than , for old men like me, it is not easy to understand the deep purpose of this real industry. sure, the word blasphemy is precise to define it for many motifs. the graphic is impressive and the story so complicated than could be accepted. monsters, fights, crumbs of old Medieval novels, the hero and the Evil. and nothing more.
