Benjamin Barker returns to London after fifteen years to find his wife and child, only to discover that his wife is dead and his child is in the hands of the man that forced him away to begin with. Told as a musical, Sweeney Todd highlights Burton's ability to set tones with darker sets and costume designs. The story is well told, the actors well chosen, and the whole world seemed to fit together naturally. However, the pacing of the film is strange. Some parts seem far to fast, especially in the beginning, while others drag on. And while the set and costumes are nice, the blood and special effects are cheesy at best. Still, it's a good musical and and it's told in a fine way. Fans of Burton or musicals in general should see this.

I guess I'm a troglodyte since I was bored by this film. It looks good and there are some catchy musical numbers but man, to me this was just an overindulgence of everything to expect from a Tim Burton film.

"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...
