Hells ★★

An anime movie with a wonderful visual/animation style that's crippled by a super generic anime plot and abysmal dubbing. The main character dub actor is quite bad indeed, and I definitely think if I could have found a subbed version this movie would have at least been tolerable. It saddens me to say that, considering the unique style and presentation of the visuals that's really stellar. I get a cross between Soul Eater, Dead Leaves and Panty & Stocking, with the sketchy fluid animation style of things usually from Trigger Studios. The Burton-y anime style of Hell is consistently fun, and the character of Elvis Devil is pretty entertaining (as well as having the only fun dub actor). If you can find the subbed version of this give it a shot, but at almost 2 hours this movie is quite a bit of a slog either way.
