Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The Hughes boys blow it by burying a fine cast ... in stock scares, sappy romance and cliches that really are from hell.
Rotten: Anyone expecting the combo of Allen and Albert Hughes and the famed Victorian serial-killer to result in a gritty, stygian, skin-crawling horror movie will be severely disappointed
Fresh: It has the lush decrepitude of an autumn compost heap or an old Hammer werewolf flick.
Fresh: Restores chill to an earlier meaning.
Not Depp's Best...
I'm very disappointed that Ian Holm is in this. For shame. The acting is all very well done. Depp does give one of the best. The writing is the real problem with this film. It's a complete mess. This film is too bloody and gorey. Had it been toned down, I'd probably reward this with 4 stars. Overall, if you can handle blood and a messy story, then From HeII may be a decent film to rent.
pretty good but....
this movie was pretty good but I hated the ending...anyway good acting and interesting story
One of my favorite Johnny Depp movies!
I have seen over 20 of Johnny Depp's movies and this is in my top 5! Depp gives an astounding performance as does Heather Graham. The plot is great and for the most part keeps you on the edge of your seat. It has everything a great movie needs: suspense, romance, action, mystery, etc. If you are into mystery and suspense and you don't mind a little gore, this is the movie for you!!
