Movie Reviews

Newsweek - 10/10 by David Ansen Depp is such a soulful presence he gives you a glimpse of this maniac's pain and pathos. Bonham Carter is extraordinary. She reinvents Mrs. Lovett from the inside out.
Washington Post - 10/10 by Peter Marks Admirers of Stephen Sondheim who have wondered whether a riveting movie would ever be made from one of his stage musicals can put aside their doubts and worries: Tim Burton has finally accomplished it in his ravishing Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
Time - 10/10 by Richard Corliss A final word for those of you who just don't care for musicals: The movie's true lyricism is less in its score than in its visual and emotional palette, and in watching Depp rise to the majesty of madness. So give Sweeney Todd a try. Even Victor, when he finally saw it, agreed: it's bloody great.
Premiere - 10/10 by Glenn Kenny The result is one of the odder and, certainly the most compelling of the short stream of Broadway-to-Hollywood transplants of recent years. The interweaving of the music and the visuals casts an unusual, restive spell of delight and unease.
The A.V. Club - 10/10 by Keith Phipps Burton brings his signature visual style, and a pair of stock players for his stars, into this film adaptation, but he wisely follows Sondheim's lead, letting the music and spirit of the original piece show the way.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert Helena Bonham Carter may be Burton's inamorata, but apart from that, she is perfectly cast, not as a vulgar fishwife type but as a petite beauty with dark, sad eyes and a pouting mouth and a persistent fantasy that she and the barber will someday settle by the seaside. Not bloody likely.
The New York Times - 10/10 by A.O. Scott Something close to a masterpiece, a work of extreme -- I am tempted to say evil -- genius.
New York Post - 9/10 by Kyle Smith Mighty entertainment that makes you feel sorry for the saps next door in the multiplex.
New York Magazine (Vulture) - 9/10 by David Edelstein Burton, bless him, constricts the space and concentrates the melodrama; he finds the perfect balance between the funereal and the ferocious. Above all, he treasures these ghouls: He digs both their bloodlust and their melancholy.
Wall Street Journal - 9/10 by Joe Morgenstern An elegant horror film, starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter, that takes pleasure in its own theatricality, gives pleasure with caustic wit, trusts the power of Stephen Sondheim's score and exults in flights of fancy that only a movie can provide.
The Hollywood Reporter - 9/10 by Kirk Honeycutt Teaming with Depp, his long-time alter ego, Burton makes Sweeney a smoldering dark pit of fury and hate that consumes itself. With his sturdy acting and surprisingly good voice, Depp is a Sweeney Todd for the ages.
Baltimore Sun - 9/10 by Michael Sragow The impact is hypnotic.
