The Limehouse Golem

The Limehouse Golem

Capsule Review

Cast: Bill Nighy, Olivia Cooke and Henry Goodman
Director: Juan Carlos Medina
Rating: 6/10

The British film centers on a murder, where the suspect is the person’s wife: Elizabeth Cree but meanwhile, Scotland Yard Inspector John Kildare is on the trails of a ‘Limehouse Golem’, which has a reputation of swiftly remaining uncaught and during it, it soon emerges that Elizabeth’s husband is one of the suspects in the Limehouse Golem murders. In the midst of a sea of eyesores, an underlining suspense running through the script to find out the identity of the Limehouse Golem, as well as discover what really happens of Elizabeth in the end, very much recycles the movie around from a piece of trash to something worthwhile; also noteworthy is the elaborately-detailed backdrop, which gets the tone of the film right – it’s not gay Victorian London anymore, because the atmosphere has suddenly gone from happy to (pressingly) gloomy and dark.
