    Surprisingly conventional Olde London Towne gaslight mystery, gussied up with some doctored visuals, and an eccentric performance by Johnny Depp.

    The movie feels dark, clammy and exhilarating -- it's like belonging to a secret club where you can have a lot of fun but might get into trouble.
  4. 60
    So beautifully realized as a mood piece that it takes a while for a slight disappointment to register.
  5. 50
    There's no bite or sting, nor is there a single moment when the film is anything close to scary. It isn't ever engaging, either; it's a dull, sluggish bum-out.
  6. 40
    A visual tour-de-force; it's just that there's not much else to sink your teeth into once the pretty colors fade from view.
  7. Feels razor thin. None of the characters is particularly noteworthy. And the revelations of deep-seated conspiracy in the usual privileged, closed circles are hackneyed and tired.

    From Hell would almost be interesting if it wasn't for the bungled love story, awful accents and empty conclusion.

There are a few nice things about this Jack the Ripper flick but overall it's a mess. Expand

    Was this supposed to be a detective film, a thriller, or a horror story? Because it fails at all three at them. Johnny Depp has been miscastWas this supposed to be a detective film, a thriller, or a horror story? Because it fails at all three at them. Johnny Depp has been miscast into a bland and uninteresting character while all other characters are simply uninteresting to begin with. Not bad, but completely forgettable. Expand
