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.
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
PROFANITY: Frequent use of strong profanity. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex with nudity. VIOLENCE: Graphic, bloody killings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent tobacco, alcohol, and opium use. ACTION: One big scene involving a runaway carriage. COMEDY: None.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
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.
