4.0 out of 5 stars one, two, Jack's coming for you, 10 Feb. 2006
This review is from: From Hell - Single Disc Edition [2001] [DVD] (DVD)
I am studying jack the ripper at the moment, so I thought I would try this film out. It is not accurate, but that didn’t matter I was captivated. The sets are very close to what the streets would of looked like at the time and that gives the film great atmosphere.
The film may not be factually correct but that doesn't matter, it's a film and a good one at that. As a stand-alone horror its fantastic and a very good mystery film. Johnny Depp is great as usual but the real star is Ian Holmes who is fantastic and captivating. The film will have you guessing and hopefully get people interested enough to read up on the case, but if your just looking for a good chilled out horror film this is as good as any and I would highly recommend it. It is scary and tense and it doesn't just focus on the Jack the ripper case, more of what was happening around the time as well, its great fun. Considering it was adapted from a graphic novel, you don't expect it to be factual but as an adaptation it is brilliant and very close to the novels, the prostitutes also provide some laughs.
I urge you to see it, especially at the price Amazon have on offer, don't expect anything greatly factual just something fun and stylish.
The 2 disc version has a great documentary but it is expensive, this is substantial especially if your just buying this for a horror film, the special features on the special features on the 2 disc edition focus on the jack the ripper case rather than the film, so make your decision, I feel its a good film and a bit of fun.
