Plot Summary

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton join forces again in a big-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's award-winning musical thriller "Sweeney Todd." Depp stars in the title role as a man unjustly sent to prison who vows revenge, not only for that cruel punishment, but for the devastating consequences of what happened to his wife and daughter. When he returns to reopen his barber shop, Sweeney Todd becomes the Demon Barber of Fleet Street who "shaved the heads of gentlemen who never thereafter were heard from again." Joining Depp is Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney's amorous accomplice, who creates diabolical meat pies. The cast also includes Alan Rickman, who portrays the evil Judge Turpin, who sends Sweeney to prison and Timothy Spall as the Judge's wicked associate Beadle Bamford and Sacha Baron Cohen is a rival barber, the flamboyant Signor Adolfo Pirelli.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mesmerizing and highly entertaining. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Depp may not be a trained singer, but his voice is more than passable, and his presence -- his Sweeney is Edward Scissorhands gone bad -- is perfect. – Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, Sep 18, 2009

Fresh: It is distinguished, hypnotic, brilliantly executed and positively electrifying. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It's easily Burton's best since, well, ever. – Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star, Oct 18, 2008

Great Great Movie!

This is one of the greatest movies ever made, this needs to be a buy and not just a rent!

Delicious macabre musical

They did it again. Burton and Depp serve up a dark humor musical not for the faint of heart. Awesome production design and gorgeous music. I am not a fan of musicals and this is easily one of my favorites. The movie is both brutal and beautiful with a look at what dish revenge will serve up. Recomend....Buy it!


Don't be discouraged by the title and rating. In fact, I loved this movie, so for that reason I gave it 3 stars. I want to BUY it. SO BADLY YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND!
