Reinventing himself as Sweeney Todd, a man unjustly sent to prison returns to exact revenge on those who ruined his life, especially the evil Judge Turpin who sent the man to prison. Not only does he seek revenge for the cruel punishment he suffered in prison, but also for what happened to his wife and daughter. When he returns to his home town, he reopens his barber shop, where Mr. Todd becomes the Demon of Fleet Street. Mrs. Lovett is Sweeney's amorous accomplice who creates diabolical meat pies out of the remains of Mr. Todd's victims

I liked this DVD. It is too violent for children. It is quite graphic. The music was well done. It is 2 hours in length. The Broadway show is 2.5 hours. The movie skips some of the songs. They followed the script well. If you like musical drama, you will like this DVD. The actors did a great job!

Watched the whole thing - only because I needed something on while sewing. This movie was not good.

The fantastical stylings of Director Tim Burton are on full display here in this dark, moody and musical rendition of the tale of Sweeney Todd, the vengeful barber who after being unjustly sent to prison by the wickedly cruel Judge Turpin and the death of his wife, returns to London where he sets up his unscrupulous business and adds the element of murder to his occupation. Accompanied by his accomplice Mrs. Lovett the piemaker, he butchers several unsuspecting patrons and their throats are slit thus making them an ingredient in the meat pies. Everything comes together, and this is a delightfully fun and dark movie.

Has all the big shot actors: Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman, Helen Bohem Carter... and it's directed by Tim Burtom so it is a little... creepy...

I love watching it again and again. Marvelous!! And watching the extra I realized the cast overall worked really hard for this movie. I did not know Johnny Depp was in a band before until I saw that extra. It was niiiice. I definitely recommend watching the extras on this DVD

Sweeney Todd: [singing about razors] These are my friends. / See how they glisten. / See this one shine, / How he smiles in the light. / My friend, my faithful friend. / Speak to me, friend. / Whisper, I'll listen. / I know, I know- / You've been locked out of sight all these years- / Like me, my friend. / Well, I've come home / To find you waiting. / Home, and we're together, / And we'll do wonders, won't we?
