Sweeney Todd marks Tim Burtons sixth collaboration with Johnny Depp and the fifth with partner Helena Bonham Carter.

Visually stunning, Sweeney Todd is a musical with the darkest of sensibilities; the squeamish take heed.

Depp's haunted Todd, filled with hatred and sorrow, won him several awards including a Golden Globe.

The film features solid support from Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall and Sasha Baron Cohen.

The musical numbers are evocative and often darkly humourous.

I've watched this film many times, and will many more. From set design to warddrobe, performance to the musical numbers, Sweeney Todd hits all the right marks for me. I have the soundtrack on my iPod and replicas of Todd's cutthroat razors on display in my theatre room.

There is nothing quite like it.

Bellatrix, Snape, Peter Pettigrew, Grindelwald, and Jace Wayland all in the same movie!

Horropera? Operorror? The sets are remarkable, the acting is above par and this is one of Tim Burton's best, but I still don't like musicals and this is yet another reason why not.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a mixture of dark comedy, horror, and drama, done in the unique stylings of Tim Burton. The story is one of vengeance, after serving 15 years in prison Sweeney Todd returns to London to seek revenge on Judge Turpin, the man who wrongfully set him up in order to steal his wife. To tell this story Burton relies on his faithful regulars Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter, along with Alan Rickman and Sacha Baron Cohen. And while all of the performances are quite excellent, it’s Depp’s brilliant performance that carries the film and makes Sweeney Todd both sympathetic and villainous. Musically, the film ranks as one of the best Broadway musicals to have been brought to screen; it has the depth and dimension of a big operatic score, yet it’s also light and comedic at times. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street seems a rather unlikely musical to translate to the screen...but translate it does, in a beautiful and stylish way unlike any other musical has.

Famoso músical que Tim Burton hace pelicula de un modo oscuro como requiere el argumento, con canciones y un petardo personaje que no para de llamar a su "Joana", resulta irritante pero por lo demas un adaptacion Increible.

Una de las mejores de Burton, el reparto no pudo ser mejor y la actuación es una simple maravilla.

Was there ever a more perfect musical for Tim Burton to direct ? Not a frame of this film, could be mistaken for any other director. The initial animated opening is a great touch and there is a standout sequence involving Depp singing and killing his victims which is funny, haunting and horrific. Great production design and Depp & Bonham Carter are perfectly cast. The main flaw of the film lies with the plot involving Todd's daughter, which feels out of place in the context of the film and isn't really developed very well.

Muito bom Filme, nao sei dizer se a historia que e boa ou o detale das musicas.
Johnny Depp como de costume em seus filmes esta muito bem no papel.

vale a pena assistir =]

Wasn't expecting it to be this dark and horror-y, but I am surely not complaining :))

I love a good musical. This one has it all - wonderful songs, engaging story, beautiful costumes. I love to listen to the soundrack every so often too.

Added bonus is Alan Rickman whose voice I greatly adore too - Clive Owen has a bit similar timbre but I never heard him sing anything.

Fucking hate musicals but this wasn't so bad eh?

Lots of fun. Some catchy songs and I love the old universal-horror aesthetic. Surprisingly gory for a big budget studio musical.

It´s a well made movie I´m just not very high on musicals.

Oh my... This is one shitty movie! There's a LOT of singing and a boring plot which I couldn't stand more than 20 minutes... Johnny Depp's appearance cannot save this flick. I begin to suspect that one either loves Tim Burton's movies or one cannot stand them (and I would fall into the second category for sure)!

Sorry submitted accidentally.. Ahem, as I was saying... I'm drawn to musicals about as much as the KKK is to fair rights movement. So I watched this with some reluctance and only for the cast and Burtons direction. I came expecting little and walked away engaged, mesmerized and utterly impressed. Not sure Burton has done anything better since frankly. Check it out.
