Notes: 
Storyline Heading
He was the first tabloid star of the twentieth century and remains the most notorious and enigmatic serial killer in history. Jack the Ripper committed five heinous, ritualistic murders during a ten-week span in London in the fall of 1888, creating a frenzied atmosphere of gossip, rumor and terror. He was never caught.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Mystery Thriller - Those expecting an especially gory, horror movie-style retelling of the Jack the Ripper story may be somewhat let down by this film, which is more of an atmospheric thriller. The violence is still strong, however, as is the sexual content, making it inappropriate for children.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Excellent "From Hell, an entrancingly literate and old-fashioned mystery with a shivery note of dread at its center, is that rare thing, a horror film of genuine artistry and excitement. The Hughes brothers are more interested in disturbing you than in getting you to leap under your seat in fright -- yet they are hardly ones to step back from operatic mayhem.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "..a visually impressive motion picture that stuns the senses with its surreal depiction of late-19th century London and its orgy of uncensored violence. From Hell is a good deal better than Depp's last atmospheric horror story, Sleepy Hollow. This movie has more realized potential, including a storyline that goes somewhere.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "Watching the film, I was surprised how consistently it surprised me. Despite its gothic look, "From Hell" is not in the Hammer horror genre. Despite its Sherlockian hero, it's not a Holmes and Watson story. Despite its murders, it's not a slasher film''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Average "Hell is gorier than past Ripper pics, which doesn't mean that the Hughes brothers necessarily bring anything fresh to the story. With almost as many subplots as corpses, the movie maintains its mild watchability only because the Ripper saga still engrosses.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Teens enjoyed the movie slightly more than adults. The low number of "Fantastic" opinions and the relatively high number of "Good" and lower opinions indicates a good but not great movie. There were a lot of negative comments about the movie being too long and too slow/boring. This tells me that many moviegoers were expecting a fast paced action/thriller, which this movie isn't. It's more of a psychological thriller. If you go in knowing that, you should probably enjoy it, at least to some degree.

With this many very low opinions of "Poor" and "Terrible," I highly recommend that you read all that we offer for this movie before deciding to see it.
