During the car chase, the model of the blue car changes back and forth. You can see this by looking at the grill, for most of the chase the badge is in the middle, but at one point near the beginning, and once the car is at the cliff edge the badge is in the top right hand corner of the grill.

Marshall Kane: What if I told you I was going to murder one of you today? What if everything I have accomplished in my field thus far was a vicarious way to experience what I'm really drawn to? And what if the truth is that I've studied serial killers all my life because subconciously I wanted to be one... but was too scared to admit it?

Ripper - DVD From Bargain Bin
14 August 2004 | by (Soton, England) – See all my reviews

I paid £1.49 for this and I'd say I got my moneys worth. As you'd expect it's very derivative of most films of this genre and treads a fine line between credibility and hokum.

However it's not cringe-inducing bad and I'd probably rate it a lot higher if it weren't for the lack of a clearcut resolution at the end. Even the Director's Commentary failed to shed any light on the definitive solution, basically saying it's up to the audience to decide for themselves - acceptable in a more highbrow production but a bit annoying for a film of this level.

Still I've seen a lot worse and it's worth the small change from anyone's pocket!
