About the Movie

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.

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!

Great Great Movie!

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

Breath taking!

I was completely satisfied with this movie. Johnny and Tim have worked their magic once again, and this time it's better than ever! Johnny, Helena, Alan, Sacha, Jamie, Jayne and Ed all did a wonderful job with the vocals. There's something here for everyone: a heartfelt story, lots of gore (if you're into that sort of thing), macabre humor, music, and...JOHNNY DEPP! Hahaha. But seriously, if you're squemish, don't worry, the story, the music, Tim's vision, and all the actors make this movie worth watching.
