I love this film. It may not be the true story about Jack the Ripper, but it's twisted plot keeps you guessing. Rated R for Strong violence, gore, language, nudity, and some sexuality. This movie is twisted.

It is interesting to notice that two black directors made a movie involving all-white cast in this film. I think that was a remarkable achievement. Anyway, I liked the film because it was suspenseful and gripping. The artwork, the scenery, and the view of London were dynamic. The artistic creation team deserves a look for the Academy Awards. Johnny Depp is notorious for selecting dark movies, and this was a fine definition of his work. He gave a bold performance as Inspector Abberline. Heather Graham was great in Boogie Nights, but this time, she lacks. I think the role was kinda wrong for her. I think that how the movie used up the flashback/dream sequences while jack the Ripper came to slaughter were cool, better done than it was in Natural Born Killers. I believe I need to see this movie again to give a better review, giving more thought about it. Two things I can say...first, the movie is very good. Secondly, a Johnny Depp movie is well worth renting because he never fails to please the audience.

There more I watch this movive, the more I love it. If you are a fan of Johnny Depp this film is a must-see. Flaring his talent for versatility he is captivating as Dt Abberline. What little humor there is in this movie is subtle and wonderfully delivered by Depp. It helps to have some prior knowledge of Jack the Ripper but the movie is easy enough to follow without it. Those who have read the novel may find it a little different. Watch the movie with an open mind and an eye for detail. There's a lot to be seen in the almost permanently dark world portrayed. The murders themselves are not as graphic as I may have expected. They allude to the horror more than they show it. Since history tells us the fate of these women the suspense and tension could've been increased a little by being more graphic but I guess for the slightly squeamish it's probably strong enough as it is. This movie is great viewing and although it doesn't meet the typical thriller genre it has a dramatic style all its own.

Johnny Depp is, once again, amazing! The movie tells the historical events that unfolded during the Jack the Ripper murders. Set in London's Whitechapel District in the 1880s, this movie provides an equal mixture of history, mystery, and gruesomeness! Depp plays a detective that is looking to find the true Jack the Ripper. Although there are instances in the screenplay that are historically inaccurate, this movie still provides a great insight into a bloody and dirty period.

This is perhaps the best movie about the Jack the Ripper murders since the t.v. movie Starring Micheal Caine. It is an excellent movie.

Good but could be better. Most folks unfamiliar w/ Jack the Ripper should view some of the special features and do some homework prior to screening. Some basic Ripperology contributes immensely to the enjoyment. Depp does almost the same role as he did in Sleepy Hollow - only this time there is less humor & less gore. More of both would have helped.

Yet again, Johnny Depp works well with the eerie and sometimes gothic settings and fits in perfectly and i don't say that to just any actor. This is the story based on the legend of Jack the Ripper. Awesome suspense, costumes, story and characters. Heard the movie would of been perfect if the main guy wasn't a physic or something but overall i liked the movie and is a favorite next to Sleepy Hollow which was equally good and loved the goth like setting and reference to Halloween.
