Critic Reviews for Inferno

All Critics (5)

The setting may be the great outdoors and the visuals might be punched across in splashy Technicolor, but the three central characters are ripped from the film noir primer.

While the situations sometimes seem contrived, the picture is absorbing.

A fair outdoor adventure in 3-D.

A tautly directed thriller featuring well drawn characters and a compelling plot.

Audience Reviews for Inferno


Good movie even without the 3-D. Robert Ryan is stranded out in the desert by his wife and her lover to die. The first half he just finds ways to keep alive and talks to himself, but the second half really lights up and the 3-D is used more. Fun to watch and really original, worth a watch if you like Robert Ryan.
