Storyline

This telling of the story of Jack the Ripper focuses not on the killings as much as on the aristocratic lives of the people connected to the heir-apparent to the throne of England... who of course is the Ripper. It tells also of the investigator who dares to charge this man with such crimes, and of his love for a witness to one of the brutal slayings. Written by BOB STEBBINS <stebinsbob@aol.com>

Dull with some dire acting
10 September 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Films about Jack The Ripper have been done before so many times and this one reworks the old discredited idea that the Ripper was the Duke of Clarence. Its been done before and much better. The acting, particularly Patrick Bergin and whoever plays his sergeant, is dire. Phoney cockney accents abound. The script is pretty wobbly in places and things proceed at a slow pace to a somewhat dull climax. Thank's to the rest of the cast of decent British actors (Sam West, Michael York etc) its not totally dreadful. If you are interested in seeing a much better take on this idea check out Murder By Decree.It might be old now but it is so superior.
