Maybe he should have agreed to the part in the first place?
To be frank, I don't think Depp as such is bad, it is the material they forced him to work with - and the script writers' character assasination of Abberline - that is the problem.

All the best
Hi Glenn

I don't know if you have seen Depp's performance in Sweeney Todd but as the demon barber of Fleet Street, he gives a fine performance of a rounded and complex character. I contrast his Sweeney Todd performance to what he did with Abberline in From Hell, which strikes me as superficial and dull by comparison.

Hi Chris,

I haven't seen Sweeney Tood, since I am no big fan of musicals, but what you say corroborates quite well with what I've heard as well.

All the best

From Hell was a movie based on a comic, not a documentary of the Ripper killings, nuff said I think
