Entertainment Weekly
Sensational and accomplished.
88
New York Post
Gripping and stylish thriller.
80
Wall Street Journal
Ambitious, visually stunning and hugely accomplished.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
The movie feels dark, clammy and exhilarating -- it's like belonging to a secret club where you can have a lot of fun but might get into trouble.
75
San Francisco Chronicle
Mystery skillfully evokes Victorian London's dark depths.
75
The movie works well as a straight-out horror yarn, proving that the Hughes Brothers are more versatile than their previous "ghetto pictures" suggest.
75
Charlotte Observer
Depp gives yet another introspective, slightly mopey performance -- Graham never begins to act (and never has begun, as far as I know). But they're surrounded by an authentic, first-rate English cast.
63
New York Daily News
An amazing physical specimen, beautifully photographed and edited. If you think of it as your own opium dream, you may dismiss the lousy story as a mere side effect.
50
With almost as many subplots as corpses, the movie maintains its mild watchability only because the Ripper saga still engrosses.
40
It is deeply unpleasant to see women abducted, tortured and eviscerated by a methodical and meticulous butcher.
38
Philadelphia Inquirer
Feels stagy, stiff and entirely unnecessary.
20
Rolling Stone
The Hughes boys blow it by burying a fine cast -- Robbie Coltrane as a cop and Ian Holm as a royal sawbones are standouts -- in stock scares, sappy romance and cliches that really are from hell.
