Critic Reviews

  • ...best described as The Green Mile meets Solaris on the set of Alien Resurrection. More...
  • ...a terminally dull sci-fi effort... More...
  • resembles a poorly translated Heavy Metal comic strip. More...
  • Dante 01 isn't science fiction, it's just allegory with technology. The symbols are all on the surface... More...
  • Reeks of something written by a self-important first-year philosophy student . . . More...
  • If you like your SF challenging, bleak and unapologetically theosophical, Dante 01 offers a vision of hell that you may well find heavenly. More...
