Comments:

I liked this movie a lot more than the average IMDB user. I think that is the case because I am fascinated by the Jack the Ripper killings, and I also think Johnny Depp is a pretty good actor, even if he does live in France and insults the country he comes from on an almost weekly basis. From Hell is the Hughes' brothers take on the Ripper slayings, and their version was very well done, IMO. Depp stars as Inspector Abberline, a drug-addled cop with a sever Cockney accent and a strange penchant for seeing crimes in his mind. Graham is Mary Kelly, a prostitute who may end up on the victim's list of Bloody Jack. The Hughes' pick a killer, although no one really knows who did it. I'm okay with this, as it gives the story closure. In my opinion, this movie is solidly in the "buy" category.
