  Good horror.......

| | See all Paddster's reviews (161)

This is a pretty decent horror,wasn't sure what to expect with it being Johnny Depp but it's quite good,plenty of gore and some nudity which is always a good thing,worth buying 2nd hand and adding to your horror collection.....

  The Ripper....

| | See all blayboy's reviews (447)

This film is based on Jack The Ripper and the Novel From Hell. The movie is quite detached from the original story and theres quite a few historical flaws. However, its still quite an entertaining film. Its very stylish and the sets are well made. The acting is good although some of the cockney accents are a little dubious! Overall worth a watch for fans of horror and period films but not for the the Historians though!!

  Read the book

This film was based on Alan Moore's incredible graphic novel of the same name. Unsuprisingly, Hollywood having got hold of it, the style, masses of important content and many of the characters have been changed to make it more consumer-friendly and it suffers in comparison. Really, the book goes into much more depth and is so much better, whereas this film feels a bit like a cynical money-spinning rip off.

  JACK THE RIPPER

| | See all PATCHES1989's reviews (518)

This is a very interesting approach to the Jack the Ripper killings in the Whitechapel area many years ago and i feel it worked really well. Starring Johnny Depp and Robbie Coltrane this movie just never disappointed. It was really well shot in the Victorian London setting and the acting along with a strong plot was highly enjoyable. It does take a while to get going but it is a film that will be highly engaging once it does. Enjoy

Brilliant film, Johnny Depp and Heather Graham are both amazing and play their characters so well, the films story is great and has allot of bloody violence in it. At any cost a worthy movie to own.

A must watch for anyone interested in the jack the ripper whitechapel murders.Jonny depp does a good job as usual and even just about manages to pull off a cockney accent,most of the time.

  Jack the Ripper

| | See all Musbird's reviews (89)

If you are interested in the stories of Jack the Ripper then this is for you...or even if you are not then you will still enjoy this film
Depp plays the "not all there" part as always really well. Although a dark moody film with lots of blood, its a fantastic must see

  Interesting Theory...

| | See all Balthazar85's reviews (35)

I really enjoyed From Hell.
An interesting theory on the Jack the Ripper case.

Quite bloody in places!
This film looks really good, and the sets look really realistic.

The cast are brilliant, although I have to say that Heather Graeme's Irish Accent isn't one of the best i've heard!
Lot's of English cast. Ian Holm, Robbie Coltrane, Jason Flemyng. Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey) delivers a fantastic performance!

I've watched this film over 10 times and still I never get bored.
Recommended!
