Sweeney Todd is an unusual movie - a demonic barber sings and murders people?!? - but is this Johnny Depp film a good movie?
Critics around the nation weigh in:
- [Sweeney Todd] is mighty entertainment that makes you feel sorry for the poor saps in the next theater at the multiplex. -- The New York Post
- Most of the jokes fall flat in this joyless version. It's a movie for people who'd like to hear Depp do another British accent and wear a Bride of Frankenstein wig. -- Charlotte Observer
- An invigorating experience that ranks among the best stage-to-screen translations ever filmed. -- Orlando Weekly
- Sweeney Todd is as much a horror film as a musical. It is also something close to a masterpiece. - The New York Times
