Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street ★★½

It wasn't as bad the second time around, and that's probably because this time I wasn't frantically upset about the disrespect towards the musical (the singing especially). But this movie still has dumb inconsistencies, bad pacing, and Johnny Depp still can't sing for shit. That said, the ending to this movie is actually pretty well executed. The way that it's shot and how the music builds is fantastic. That's what's so frustrating about this movie. There's so much good that's hidden under all these incompetent choices.
