The 19th century murder mysteries!

Based on the book of the same name. The late 1800s murder mystery, revolving around a young woman and an old cop who is investigating a series of murders. Elizabeth Cree had not had a best childhood, but she almost reached to her dream to become a best actress in the town. Then suddenly a murder jeopardise everything she had worked so hard. Now she has to cooperate with a detective to come out of the mess. But the tale takes a twist at every corner, making more complication for her freedom. How this puzzle is solved was told with a final twist that flips the whole scenario upside down.

First of all, I love such costume drama. The atmosphere was awesome. Well maintained suspense, along with a good pace of the story narration. From all it's the actors, especially for me, it's the Olivia Cooke. Bill Nighy was not bad too. Despite he's one of the main character, Cooke stole the show. But the film was not a masterpiece. From an entertainment perspective, it delivered. I think it was a good adaptation. The only weak point is, most people would guess the end twist. It was intentional. But overall film was decent.

6/10

London's always going to look spooky, isn't it?

I was surprised to learn that "The Limehouse Golem" is based on a novel, but it is. It's an intense movie, as Bill Nighy's detective tries to put together evidence to figure out who's been committing a series of murders in Victorian London. A surprise is the depiction of Karl Marx. You wouldn't expect the author of "The Communist Manifesto" to appear as a character in a movie about Jack the Ripper-style killings, but here he is (however, the Marxists will be disappointed to hear that he appears only as a supporting character and doesn't make any profound speeches).

Overall, I recommend the movie. It makes London look like one eerie place, even the local theater. The rest of the cast includes Olivia Cooke, Douglas Booth and Eddie Marsan.*

*The same day that I saw this, I also saw "Their Finest", in which Bill Nighy and Eddie Marsan co-star.

Well worth watching

This is certainly a film to watch if you like gothic type mystery/horror kind of films.

The cast are brilliant, whether they are the well known faces such as Bill Nighy and Olivia Cook, or the lesser known cast members.

The film isn't heavy watching, but equally can engross you in the story as you are left wondering how it will develop.
