    I'm not a fan of musicals but this ones pretty well made and the Gothic tone fits this movie well but the Rossana song bored me to death and the movie is a bit over the top gory.

    No me convenció la primera vez, sobre todo porque la historia de amor es igual de cansina que la de Los Miserables.

    Sweeney Todd is one of the Tim Burton's films I have enjoyed the least. However, there are still some spectacular things in it that I couldn't help being dazzled by. It was visually wonderful and the story's nature suits perfectly Burton's style. It also featured a strong cast, with a totally inspired Johnny Depp in the starring role. What I didn't find entirely compelling were the music and songs in it; some of the musical numbers were a tad longer than necessary, but the ones that stood out were indeed amazing.

    I cannot emphasize this enough: this would be a straight-up great movie, period, were it not for the fact that the leads can't sing. This is Burton's best directed film (only Ed Wood comes close), the Sondheim songs are unsurprisingly amazing. You know what? I'm not even mad about Depp, who can't sing but at least has enough charisma to elevate his character. It's really Carter that almost single-handedly sinks the whole movie down. The supporting players aren't amazing vocalists…

    Aprobado raspao para Burton. Vi el musical hace unos años en Madrid sin muchas expectativas tras haber visto la película y salí maravillada. Hoy revisionándola me di cuenta de que la culpa no es de la historia, es de Tim Burton.

    El que fuera el maestro del cine oscuro y gótico en los 90, se vuelve una parodia de sí mismo llevando al absurdo cada guión que toca. Y el bueno de Johnny parece que no es capaz de decirle que no...

    It's good to know that this film still holds up for me on a rewatch. The story is simple and easy to follow, which results in some pretty simple characters as well despite us learning more about them through their songs. The dark tone is consistent and thorough throughout and the songs do a good job of matching this tone well. The songs aren't exactly the most catchy or memorable tunes (I don't see these being the kinds of songs…

    Sweeney Todd (2007)

    Tim Burton and Johnny Depp at their gloomiest, goriest, and musical-est.

    One of my favourite Tim Burton films and Johnny Depp roles. It's a brilliant musical take on the original film, with horror, drama, romance, comedy, a lot of gore, and some excellent songs. Depp and Helena Bonham Carter are perfection in the lead and their chemistry is amazing together; I could watch many more films with them in the leads. Neither of them or the brilliant support including Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall, and Sacha Baron Cohen, can sing overly well,…

    A fantastically murderous musical.

    STORY 4.5/5
    WRITING 4/5
    ACTING 4/5
    MUSIC 4.5/5

    I'm not a huge fan of Burton. I hate, hate, hate, hate, HATED Beetlejuice. His Batman was meh at best. Though I did enjoy Charlie and the Chocolate Factory more than some, and I believe that he made a masterpiece with Big Fish, generally his work has disappointed me, and his films are very overrated by most, at least by the non-film critiquing crowd.

    But this…

    A dreadful adaptation of an amazing stage show; casting people who could sing might have been sensible.
