    I wasted my time watching this movie
  • Utterly unconvincing

    This film annoyed me no end. Everything about it is "off". Bill Nighy is too old for the role, unfortunately, and just comes across as glum and disengaged. As a result, he fails to draw attention away from his junior partner. What sinks the film is the female lead, who appears in just about every scene and is an unbearably self-conscious actress. Switched off with 40 minutes to go. The scenes with Karl Marx in them are just plain silly.
  • A waste of time & money

    Predictable.
  • Lots of promise but degenerates into mess

    Bill Nighy has a certain dignity and cool which is almost always enjoyable to observe and no less so in this film. The sets, costumes and gothic atmosphere are well-executed. The movie starts strong: we're on the trail of a serial killer with a literary flair. It looks like a game of cat and mouse with mystery to savor and courtroom drama as a bonus. And then the film takes a long detour into a lengthy exploration of the hardscrabble life of a dancehall performer, and by so doing degenerates into a meandering soap opera with often nearly incomprehensible dialogue, and forays into kinky sad-masochism. The actual pursuit of the killer becomes an afterthought. A cameo by Communist Karl Marx (!) signifies nothing except that the screenwriters had time to fill. The Limehouse Golem would have been engaging as an hour-long TV drama, but as a feature film it's padded and squanders the talents of Nighy and supporting star Eddie Marsan.
  • Incredible! (NO SPOILERS)

    If you like crime, mystery solving, dark, gory, old school victorian/edwardian era stuff, this is for you. I really like how this was filmed, and at times it had a very special, creepy edge to it. I must admit, I did not see the ending coming. I thought this was written really well. I also believe it was worth the price to rent. ENJOY!
