Inaccuracies spoil potential
23 April 2000 | by Kent PennySee all my reviews

I have an interest in the Jack The Ripper. There's something about those 5 unsolved murders committed in London in 1888 - all the suspects, each with some reasonable motive and/or link to the victims. So when I saw this film on the shelf at the video store, I had to get it.....

Mistake.

Yes, it has nice costumes and pleasant sets, but that's as good as this film gets. It's full of inaccuracies, with poor acting and a stupid fictionalised storyline.

Whoever wrote the screenplay must have found some "Reader's Digest Condensed History of Jack The Ripper", because only major events were covered, and even then they weren't always quite right, with the majority of the "film" seemingly dreamed up after a big night out on the booze.

If you don't know much about Jack The Ripper and think those daytime soap actors have talent, this might be acceptable viewing. On the other hand, if you're looking for something with a bit of substance, you'll most likely be disappointed and feel a need to hide your face when you return this turkey to the store.
