This may well be the best adaptation ever of the source material, but I don't know; fifteen minutes into it I was so very, very tired of Tim Burton's self-indulgent emo jackassery that my fight-or-flight reflex kicked in and, rather than owe the...

Sick, but Sweet
Aesthetically, it was pretty amazing, but the graphic content almost made me puke. Sweet movie, but sick movie. Good for a one time thing, but I don't really wanna watch it again...

This tale of revenge has great music, atmosphere, and story. About 80% of the dialog is in song, which is great because it flows very well and never feels forced. The movie never drags, and once the blood starts spewing, it's a suspensful ride all...

Wow. I don't like musicals for the most part, because their lyrics are normally forced and they just set up ridiculous dance sequences. This is not Sweeney Todd. Sweeney Todd is incredible, because the music is the only way to accept this horribly...

Whatever the varying allures of this sharp, gloomy movie are, the main one derives from the creative mind of director Tim Burton, who has a powerful and distinctive visual imagination. (I first encountered it in "Beetlejuice," one of the...

It was sick, gory and absolutely breath-taking. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wondered how they were going to show the blood-letting - let me tell you, they were over the top!

The orchestra was good, but the music was uninspired and formulaic, and I was not impressed by the singers. The violence may appeal to some, but it was needlessly over the top, and didn't add anything to the story. Worst of all is the plot, or lack...

Please know two things prior to seeing Sweeney Todd. First, this is a cinematic adaptation of the 1979 musical of the same name, so, there is very little dialogue that is not sung. Second, there is a lot of squirting blood. And, by a lot, I mean “a...

I actually had to turn on the sub-titles on this DVD because I couldn't understand a bloody word they were singing. The music is very loud and the singing/dialogue is too faint. Overall I enjoyed the movie and give lots of credit to Helen Bonham...

I am not a fan of musicals and this was the first one I watched till the end. Others might give it four or five stars but singing in movies is not my thing. The fact that I watched the entire movie shows my affection for Tim Burton, Johnny Depp and...

I've always wanted an Edward Scissorhands 2, and I think this is about as close as I'm going to get to seeing that. Depp plays a vindictive man on a rampage to avenge his wife's wrongful death. Bonham Carter plays his partner in crime, a meat pie...

Leave it to Tim Burton to adapt a musical into a film that doesn't turn your stomach, ironically by filling it with stomach-turning violence and gore. Having never seen the Sondheim play upon which it's based, I can't judge how faithful an...

Ugh! I did not like this movie. I'm all for dark films but this one is just too dreary. Johnny Depp was fine, but the rest of the people were just not interesting. One thing to watch for though, is the blink and you'll miss it cameo from Anthony...

The costumes, sets and cinematography are terrific, but about 80 percent of "Sweeney Todd" is told in song. Add a star if you like musicals. The songs themselves are clever and operatic, but proved too much of a good thing for me (a limitation...

Excellent, Slightly Twisted Movie
If you appreciate sinister wit and clever lyrics, this movie will ensure hours of maniacal laughter. While there are many violent scenes, realism clearly wasn't the director's goal. It's so over the top, none of the images are overly graphic. It's...
