From Hell  2001 mystery movie

Running time: 120 minutes

Language: English

Locations: the story takes place in LondonCity of London, EnglandUnited Kingdom

Inspector Frederick Abberline has to climb out of the depths of his opium addiction to solve the series of murders in Whitechapel.

American version of Jack the Ripper story is, as could be expected, done without any care about the details and historical facts. Actually it is based on comic book about Jack the Ripper which could explain why it was made with so little accuracy - we see here more of the legends that were surrounding the murders than real events. Also the characters of Frederick Abberline and other policemen are taken straight from imagination of comic book creators and not from history.

Overall - good cast, decent script and none historical value.
