Plot Summary: Allen and Albert Hugheses movie From Hell (2001) is a portrayal of the infamous Jack the Ripper case set in London of 1888 starring Johnny Depp, Heather Graham, and Robbie Coltrane. The notorious Jack the Ripper has been running amuck in the Whitechapel district murdering and dissecting prostitutes. Scotland Yard Inspector Fred Abberline (Depp), aided by his partner, Peter Godley (Coltrane), are on the case to figure out who this serial killer is and why he is killing these women in such a brutal manner. Abberline is an opium addict and when "chasing the dragon" he is able to have visions of the future, a certain psychic ability that allows him to solve cases. As Abberline and Godley investigate the crimes, they become acquainted with the prostitutes who were friends and colleagues of the victims. Abberline begins to fall in love with Mary Kelly (Graham), one of the prostitutes, or as the nobles called them "unfortunates", being hunted down by Jack the Ripper. Abberline digs deeper and deeper into the conspiracy and attempts to solve the case before Mary Kelly is the next victim.

Comments: Intriguing twist to the mystery of Jack the Ripper. The movie started off slow and I wondered why I was watching it. Then it got into the action of investigating the Jack the Ripper mystery and, no pun intended, came alive. The movie is loosely based on facts surrounding the Jack the Ripper murders of prostitutes in London. One follows Johnny Depp's role as the inspector investigating those multiple murders as well as his love for one. Once past the first 10 to fifteen minutes, the movie is easy to follow; there are no dull moments. Fine acting by all and well worth the time to view. I rated it an eight.
