Based on the 19th century legend of Sweeney Todd and the hit Broadway musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (Johnny Depp) returns to London after being sent to prison, unjustly, by Judge Turpin. Sweeney opens a barber shop and vows to get his revenge, not only for that cruel punishment, but for the devastating consequences of what happened to his wife and daughter.

Joining Depp is Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney's amorous accomplice, who sells "the worst pies in London." With the help of Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney tries to rid of all the people who have ever done him wrong and hopes to be reunited with his daughter, Joanna, who is now Judge Turpin's ward.

 Masterpiece

Pre-ordered this baby from Play and received my pretty cool steel case; good stuff. =D
Anyway, being a huge Tim Burton fan myself I was captivated with his blood-spattering treat 'Sweeney Todd'; A film that soon placed itself firmly in my favourite Burton-flick spot.
Not only is this timeless story supported by very strong performances from Depp and The cast (yes, I even enjoyed the singing; got the soundtrack too), I was able to sit back and bask in Burton's beautifully noir vision of Victorian London. And as for the blu-ray, the picture and sound are once more; superb.

 A Gory Masterpiece

This if a fine superb masterpiece from mastermind Tim Burton as he brings the hit musical to the big screen.Starring Johnny Depp as Benjamin Barker who becomes Sweeney Todd after he was sent away on a false charge by the evil Judge Turpin played by the great Alan Rickman.Once back in London and he learns the truth of what happened to his wife Lucy and his daughter Johanna is now turpin's ward he vows revenge against the man who sent him away the judge.Along the way Mrs lovett played by Tim burton's real life wife Helena Bonham Carter who has the worst pies in London opens a barber shop above her pie shop and vows to have his revenge.The setting is brilliant and the setting is very dark and well set.The chemistry between Depp and Bonham Carter is there you can feel it there scenes together are really powerful and the singing performances together are even better and well performed Deep voice is so beautiful and Bonham Carter has a real nice beautiful voice aswell.Sacha Boren Cohen also shows off his singing skills and what my opinion steals the show in his performance he is in.He plays Signor Alolfo Pirelli Sweeney todd rival barber the dirty italian he is cocky and when he tries to black mail him about his past Sweeney then seals the day.Dont let this film put you off cause it's a musical the music score is ace and very addictive and a cd you should have in your collection.In my opinion Sweeney Todd is the film of 2008 great music fabolous Old london settings and a cast of world class actors see this film you wont be disapointed.

I don't quite understand the people criticising this film simply because it's a musical - what did they expect?

Sweeney Todd is a breath of fresh air, mixing horror with music and dark humour to create a truly unique musical movie. Top performances all around make this a must-own.

The Blu-ray itself is very nicely presented and features almost 45 minutes of bonus features that are missing from the standard DVD release. So. definitely worth opting for the Blu.

Fantastic film and great picture on Blu-Ray, however - don't be fooled with the "Steel Book" description, Play.com dissapointingly sent me a regular case.

 Try this review, its in the middle, like the film...

If you are a fan of horror you will be entertained but not thrilled...

If you are a fan of musicals your feet will be twitching, but there will be no tapping...

And if you aren't a fan of either you may start napping...

A spat of gore here, a bum-note there, this film tries hard on both fronts but never, quite, gets, there...

Very different but ultimately overrated, none the less stil a potent and inspiring film, with a cracking last 20 minutes that finally meets the potential momentum of the majority of the movie!
