Product Description

Product Description

From Hell (Two-Disc Special Edi

Amazon.ca

Heavy on atmosphere and light on everything else, From Hell is visually impressive while lacking the depth of the acclaimed graphic novel it's based upon. Making their third feature since 1993's Menace II Society, twins Allen and Albert Hughes approach the Jack the Ripper case with physical precision, re-creating the gritty Whitechapel district of 1888 London in meticulous detail. What they've forgotten is the sheer terror that gripped Whitechapel in the wake of the Ripper's slaying of five prostitutes, investigated here by a Scotland Yard sleuth (Johnny Depp) who uses opium, laudanum, and absinthe to fuel his semiprescient visions of the slayings. Heather Graham attempts a slippery Cockney accent as a would-be victim, while Ian Holm steals the show as a has-been surgeon with devilish delusions of grandeur. Violence is obliquely suggested or briefly graphic, but no matter how you cut it, From Hell is only marginally thrilling as it treads familiar territory. --Jeff Shannon

From Hell had a great graphic novel to start, but its cinematic adaptation sucked it clear off all its real meat, suspense and all, leaving a drab story filled with uninteresting characters, save for Johnny Depp's opium-junkie inspector.

If you're fans of Johnny Depp, or completists of his work, then it would be a good decision indeed. But fresh viewers beware. A rental would be better in some case (unless the price is on par with a rental, then by all means).

It's the second disc that truly contains all the bonus materials that make it worth having. Because the Blu-ray edition doesn't have any of that and it isn't likely to change.

All in all, I thought this movie would have grown on me since the last time I watched it (10 years ago)... it didn't... Too bad, but then again, there ARE better films on Jack the Ripper available.

Jack the Ripper is perhaps one of the most famous (or should I say infamous) serial killers known. His has indeed become somewhat of a household name that has withstood the test of time. The Whitechapel murders, to this day, remain unsolved, and many people find themselves morbidly drawn to this slew of ghastly occurrences. The Hughes brothers are no different from the countless others who seek to dissect the facts surrounding these heinous crimes, and they approach this fascination with cinematic fervor, creating an excellent movie from the excellent comic book.
There have been countless books, movies, and PBS specials produced that delve into the Jack the Ripper tales and theories. This particular adaptation is the depiction of a detective named Inspector Fred Abberline (Johnny Depp) who is hot on the trail of the murderous monster. Enlisting the hallucinatory effects of absinthe, he can induce visions that aid him in his quests. Throughout his investigation, he gradually begins to fall for one of the Whitechapel prostitutes at risk (Mary Kelly played by Heather Graham), and this serves to up the ante regarding the challenge to find the villain and, furthermore, accelerate his efforts. Sir William Gull (Ian Holm) is a doctor who contributes to Inspector Fred Abberline's profile of the meandering butcher. Add to this an illegitimate marriage and a royal scandal, and this equates to an enticingly dour, moody thriller that one can't help but to enjoy.
The sets on this film are incredible, and included in the two disc edition within the extras existing on the DVD is an intriguing explanation of the recreation of the sets from actual photographs and maps from the period. The props and attire were also quite well done. The acting and casting were superb.

Whats good about this film is that it shows you what those poor women went through. Honestly no one deserves to die a horrible death in the fashion those women did, no matter what your occupation is at the time. I believe this to be a better movie about Jack the Ripper. We see a great portrayel of what the streets of London were like in those times. Life wasn't easy for the poor then and they had to do what they needed to do in order to suvive. Over all this movie scared me because of the seriousness of what this sicko did to women and how they showed life on the streets in London back in those days. I think I rather live in the heart of Los Angelas or even New York then to live the way Londoners did in those times. Something to think about. Why did Jack the Ripper get away with it? I think the most true part of the film is the portrayel of the freemasons. Do yourself a favor. Rent this one before you decide to buy it. Some people find the Ripper to be disturbing and this film really expresses that.

If you're a so-called RIPPER-ologist, this movie may be more than disappointing. If you're looking for cinema reprise of Alan Moore's evil graphic novel this isn't it either. Johnny Depp is engaging enough as Scotland Yard CDI Fred Abberline,but the movie lacks depth and tries to have "outdated" psychedelic pyrotechnics (and very good art design)compensate for a fluffy plot. David Wickes/BBC/Michael Caine televideo production of JACK THE RIPPER is vastly more accomplished both as entertainment and movie manifesto of Stephen Knight's THE FINAL SOLUTION. FROM HELL and TFS both propose Masonic conspiracy to protect the British Monarchy from a scandal involving the "presumptive heir to the throne". In my estimate the best Ripper story(unless you want to go way "back in day" for '50's solutionless,but very atmospheric
B x W cult thriller called,THE LODGER) remains,MURDER BY DECREE: where Sherlock Holmes(Christopher Plummer)stands-in for Abberline to face down Masonic adepts who are also RULERS of not-so merry, or olde England at height of the Victorian Age Empire. Again, if you're a fan of Johnny Depp you might like this surprisingly edgeless PM probe of the monstrous Whitehall Chapel Murders. Otherwise, be prepared to shrug-off the bloody, drugged-up,grape strewn path of this Jack the Ripper rip-off.

OK, so this isn't the best movie I've seen in my life. I don't think it'll become a classic, because of its genre, but I think this movie is a lot better than some of the critics would have us believe.
Firstly, although I admit I wasn't hugely keen on all the cockney accents, I do think that Johnny Depp was brilliant. Maybe it's just because he's gorgeous, but I do think he was brilliant as the dark, brooding inspector in this film. He was just so cool, you couldn't help but find him a very likable hero. The dastardly villain, Jack The Ripper himself, was very powerful and convincing too - pretty much a flawless performance.
Although the plot was a tad long-winded and inexplicable at times, I've seen a lot worse and in the end, it did all make sense. I didn't get bored even when the movie was a little tough going, because of the superb set and generally interesting characters. I personally thought the prostitutes and policemen were extremely authentic - there was very little Hollywood glamour in the film, which was necessary to show the seedy areas of Victorian London.
My only real complaint about this movie would be Heather Graham - she really wasn't anything to write home about. Still, she wasn't playing a very demanding or charismatic role, so maybe I'm being a little harsh here. Otherwise, this film was a success in my opinion - well cast, well directed and brilliant scenery. By the way - this film is NOTHING like Sleepy Hollow. From Hell is pure evil, whilst Sleepy Hollow is its very tongue in cheek, poor relation.
