Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a horror-thriller movie released in 2008. The movie stars Dougray Scott, Krista Bridges, and Tom Skerritt in leading roles. The movie tells the story of Dr. Jekyll, a brilliant scientist, who creates a serum to explore the darker parts of our psyche. However, his experiment goes wrong, and he transforms into his evil alter-ego, Mr. Hyde.

The movie begins with a shot of Victorian England, where Dr. Jekyll (played by Dougray Scott) is a well-respected scientist who is admired by many. Dr. Jekyll is a man fascinated by the darker aspects of human nature, and he spends countless hours in his lab, trying to unlock the secrets of the human psyche. He is married to his childhood sweetheart, Claire Wheaton (played by Krista Bridges), who is worried about his obsession with science.

Dr. Jekyll's experiments have been funded by a group of wealthy benefactors, including Sir Danvers Carew (played by Tom Skerritt), who is his biggest supporter. Dr. Jekyll's assistant, Hilsborough (played by Stephen Macdonald), is also very loyal to him and assists him in all his experiments. However, Dr. Jekyll's obsession with science takes a dark turn, and he starts experimenting on himself.

As Dr. Jekyll continues to experiment on himself, he starts to transform into an evil alter-ego called Mr. Hyde, who is everything that Dr. Jekyll is not. Mr. Hyde is violent, aggressive, and shows no empathy or regard for human life. He starts to terrorize the streets of London, and soon enough, people start to connect the dots and realize that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are one and the same person.

As Dr. Jekyll continues to transform into Mr. Hyde, he starts to lose control over his thoughts and actions. His wife, Claire, becomes worried about him and tries to get him to stop his experiments, but Dr. Jekyll is too far gone to listen. Sir Danvers Carew and Hilsborough also become concerned and try to intervene, but they too are unsuccessful.

The movie climaxes in a final showdown between Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, where the true nature of their relationship is revealed. The ending of the movie is poignant and thought-provoking.

The movie is a modern retelling of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel and explores themes such as duality of human nature, obsession, and addiction. The movie is well-directed and well-acted, with Dougray Scott delivering a standout performance as both Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Krista Bridges and Tom Skerritt also deliver strong performances in supporting roles.

The movie's cinematography and set design are also noteworthy, with the movie recreating the look and feel of Victorian England with great authenticity. The music score by Daniel Licht adds to the overall atmosphere of the movie and complements the visuals perfectly.

In conclusion, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a gripping horror-thriller that explores the darkest parts of the human psyche. The movie is well-directed, well-acted, and visually stunning, with a thought-provoking ending that will leave audiences thinking long after the credits have rolled.
