FROM HELL (2001)

I really liked this one, but star power like Johnny Depp and Heather Graham in it, it was never going to be a slapped together half cooked film. Of course both Depp and Graham do amazing jobs at their roles and aside from being two of the best looking humans on the planet they can really act their parts.

From hell is loosely based on the Jack the ripper story and for my money it is entertaining , the dialogue of the day is portrayed rather well, I loved the accents and the time spent on recreating the old streets of London town and the clothes of the time also contribute to make the film great eye-candy as well.

The film of course stars Depp as the inspector Aberline who is a recovering opium addict and receiver of visions that he uses in his quest to track down the Ripper who is killing prostitutes in the dark alley ways of London town one at a time. He of course takes a liking to Heather Graham's character, Mary whilst trying to solve the murders.

I won't go too far into the plot or get into how closely it follows the book for fear of ruining the plot but there are some great twists and the movie never gets boring. There is enough blood and guts to keep most horror fans satisfied but it wouldn't fall into the extreme category by any means. Probably not an all time classic but a very solid and enjoyable watch
