Tim Burton does an admirable job of adding his macabre visual flair onto his adaptation of the dark musical. Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter give broad performances and the production design drips black humor. The real star is the soundtrack, which probably accounts for three of the four stars of my rating, but, so what, I'm a sucker for musicals.

Who would ever thought Johnny Depp could sing. I mean none of the musical numbers were Oscar worth but they were still good. Johnny Depp stars as Sweeney Todd a former barber whose Wife and daughter were stripped away from him years ago. He is now out for blood and man do I mean he is out for blood. Helen Bonham Carter does a really good job as his psychologically screwed up partner in crime. It is awesome to see Alan Rickman as Judge Turpin getting away from his roles in the PG rated Harry Potter series. Timothy Spall as Beadle Badford also does a really good job. The ending is amazing although I wish it could have gone differently. Go rent this movie please.

Tim Burton offers a brilliant, dark, spectacular envisioning of Stephen Sondheim's brilliantly crafted gothic musical "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street." I saw this play on stage, produced for a live stage version, and now its come full circle into an Academy Award-nominated film. Wonderful. The take is artistic, graphic, and amazing with brilliant lead actors Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Timothy Spall. Oh, the little kid who plays Tobie is great too. See this movie with an open heart, mind, and menacing leer.

"Sweeney Todd" by Yojimbo

I hate musicals. I'm not just saying that to appear manly; I really, really do. But I was willing to give this a chance because I'm a big fan of Tim Burton and I thought if anyone could pull it off, it would be him. His trademark Gothic imagery is as excellent as always, and Johnny Depp and Helena are pretty damn good, surrounded by some great production design and lovely costumes. AS LONG AS THEY'RE NOT SINGING. The fact is I was willing to give this a chance thinking I could grit my teeth through the musical numbers in order to enjoy the rest of the film. But there IS NO rest of the film. It's like a camp pantomime cum bohemian opera in which the dialogue in its ENTIRETY is sung in half-arsed cod poetry. I sat through it to enjoy Burton's visuals but only by viewing it on fast forward. ...

Great Burton, Wonderful Musical

I've always had this weird love for Tim Burton movies, and somehow I knew that Sweeney Todd would be just as good, if not better, than all the rest.

The story of Sweeney Todd is wonderful, eerie, and down right gory. I loved the way the story progressed, along with how the characters developed. The little ways the characters reacted to each other made the story even better with each second. Even if the characters were slightly different, the story would still be wonderful.

The characters really do help the story move along. The characters are realistic, but at the same time, they're really far from the world. The way that Sweeney Todd acts through the movie is really interesting. I especially love the way that he interacts with Mrs. Lovett. There's just something about their interac...

Great Musical

I loved listing to "Sweeney Todd" music before the movie was first picked up. The music was wonderful and brought out by the fantastic singers that were chosen first. When I heard Tim Burton was picking up the musical and making it into a movie, I was ecstatic. This kind of musical was right down Tim Burton's alleyway.

The artistry and actors that went into "Sweeney Todd" still amazes me. Tim Burton does a really good job of picking actors that work well for the roles that they're portraying. Along with these actors, he films them well and brings to life a world that seems so real that I feel I'm there with them.

With "Sweeney Todd" the music sung was done beautifully. I loved the way the actors sounded by themselves and with the other actors. Along with the music, the actors outsid...
