    Synopsis


    Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
    Stephen Sondheim's award-winning musical thriller comes to the big screen in this adaptation directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, Timothy Spall, and Alan Rickman. Embittered at having been wrongly imprisoned and determined to seek vengeance against his accusers due to the grim fate that befell his wife and daughter while he was incarcerated, ex-convict Sweeny Todd (Depp) returns to his hometown and opens a modest barber shop. The one thing different about Todd's shop, however, is that no one who walks in for a trim is ever seen again. Subsequently branded "The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" by the frightened community, Todd continues with his murderous exploits with a little assistance from his amorous accomplice, Mrs. Lovett (Bonham Carter) -- whose popular meat pies secretly have a most unsavory ingredient. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      "Sweeney's waiting..." so buy the DVD.

      I was prepped for the release of Sweeney Todd in theaters. I had the soundtrack down-pat, I was receiving constant updates from the site, the only I didn't do was catch the Angela Lansbury/George Hearn version. I was so excited to see it on the big screen, and couldn't wait until the DVD release. Depp and Bonham-Carter are excellent. They have great on-screen chemistry. And for two people who really never sang a lick in their lives, taking on such a complicated score, they did wonderfully. The cast as a whole was fantastic: Sacha Baron Cohen, Timothy Spall, Alan Rickman, and Laura Michelle Kelly. One thing to keep in mind though.. this is a Tim Burton film. Keep in mind, those of you who are not Burton fans, this movie is in typical Burton fashion. So, not a fan of Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, or Nightmare Before Christmas? You may not be a fan of Sweeney Todd. Don't say I didn't warn you. For the die-hard Burton fans... this is a must see!

      I went to see this movie knowing nothing about it except that it was a tim burton movie , with depp as star. and that it was a horror movie. So i knew it would be messed up, in a good way. About 15 minutes into the movie i figured out it was a musical, which at the time i was thinking it was going to be very boring. NOT TRUE!! Its a very odd, but brilliant combo, i mean a horror/musical, come on how much more messed up can that be?? i dont think anyone has done this before and nobody but Burton could pull it off, i LOVED this movie, they picked the best actors fo the parts. Its deff. not a kids movie, and very much not a movie for someone sqweemish lol. This is a must buy. (Later on i found out it was based on a actual musical.) Which kinda make me want to find a taping of the original .

      Sweeney Todd Movie

      Posted

      Being a fan of Johnny's I was excited about seeing what he would do with the character of Sweeney Todd. I saw the broadway productionwith Angela Lansbury. The movie 100% better than the play. Johnny singing is better also. A lot of people think Johnny couldn't sing. He is a pretty good singer for a guitar player. I think he did a wonderful job. I did like the ending better as far as Toby goes, but like the broadway play you don't know what happens to Johanna and Anthony. In the play we know about poor Toby. This movie has a lot of bright red blood, but I think thats because the movie is dark, and Tim makes the blood stand out. Look at Sleepy Hollow, bright blood again all over Johnny. I feel this movie is well worth anyones time to watch.

      Excelent Film-Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp

      Posted

      This movie is excelent! I am quite the fan of Helena Bonham Carter - she is one of my favourite actors. Johnny Depp was a wonderful choice for the part of Sweeny Todd himself. Tim Burton is quite the colourful director and made a spectacular film. I bought this from a BestBuy in New York when I went to visit some friends. I had seen it in theatres when it first came out in London, and loved it then! I think that the actors fit their roles precisely and it is a wonderful musical. The singing is spectacular and of couse they are able to portray London as the dreary town that it was then (but it's quite different now!) Overall, this is a great choice of a film to purchace and I highly reccomend that you do so!

      Another Tim Burton Movie.

      Posted
      Seriousaboutmoviewatchin

      From the mind of Tim Burton, another dark and gloomy movie seemingly to capture every shade of gray in the spectrum. Through this is not Tim Burton's first musical, it is his first live action musical. Sadly, he chose the wrong actors to sing in it. The classic story of the demon barber of fleet street was lost in Burton's style. Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter deliver spectacular performances, acting performances. Something new! Unecessary Gore! In all, Tim Burton's film adaptation of the broadway play is mediocre at best. Not a great example of commercialization in broadway musicals, but i guess we'll take what we can get when it comes to pointless movies.

      Yes, I was aware of what this was going into it, but still had no idea what to expect. I believe this will improve after multiple viewings, but my first impression was more bordom than anything else. I'm not a fan of most musicals where actors are singing. I can appreciate the talent of most Broadway actors/actresses in musicals. It just doesn't always translate to the screen. I'm a huge Burton/Depp/Bonham-Carter fan, but this just seemed to miss the mark for me. I certainly will give it more tries, but I initially think it is just not my cup of tea.

      Great kids movie!

      I watched this movie with my two daughters, 10 and 13, they loved it! Me personally, I didn't care for the singing. But, Tim Burton makes good kids movies (Nightmare Before Christmas, Caroline, Corpse Bride, etc.) So, if you're looking for a good family film to watch with your kids, I'd say yes. For the adults out there, you might like it, but I don't recommend it! (It says, would you recommend this to a friend. I say no, because my friends aren't kids.) I will recommend another good family film for kids, with lots of fun singing, Repo: The Genetic Opera, (my kids loved that one too.)

      A bloody, thrilling musical

      Posted
      CrimsonKing42

      Tim Burton's adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's hit musical is nothing short of brilliant. The brooding world that Burton has created perfectly complements the grim tale of a barber who returns from a forced exile to get revenge on the man who stole his family and destroyed his life. It's not a film for the weak of stomach, since Burton has in no way compromised the bloody premise of the original production. Still, for fans of Burton, Johnny Depp, or musicals in general, this is a must-see, and even those who swear off of the musical genre will find plenty to like about this gothic tale.
