Trivia

In Greek mythology, Orpheus was a tragic figure who tried, and failed, to rescue his loved Eurydice from Hades. In this film, he is legendary for his ability to rescue mortals from Hell. This paradox is made even more amusing by the Devil's comment that the mortals don't know their mythology. See more »

A waste of perfectly good stop motion animation and voice acting
10 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

It is a mystery to me how anyone could have looked at this script, then thought it might be a good idea to hire good voice actors and go through the painstakingly process of creating a stop-motion animation. The result is the cinematic equivalent of building a house on sand.

Only one joke in the entire movie made me laugh. Every other joke was some form of gross-out-joke, sexual joke or 'it is funny because they swear' kind of joke. Not that I have trouble with humor that does this, but not only the entire movie is based on that kinds of jokes, they are also written so poorly. It feels like this script was coughed up by a pair of stoned film students as a side project. There isn't even really a story to speak of, just a series of loosely connected scenes that have a vague resemblance of a plot.

The movie actually gets better for a while, if you set your internal commentary to those two film students writing their script:

"Dude... and the the devil is like... putting then into the trap door, because his hot angel girlfriend he tries to impress is coming to visit him... and then the angel says she is looking for those dudes, but they are already gone and as he opens the trap door again, there is all sorts of funny stuff that comes back up..."
