    Ok .. so this afternoon I have watched the movie " Sweeney Todd " and I can tell you obviously it is the worst movie that I ever seen !!!
    what is these songs they singing ?!they think we are in show/musical .. all the movie is song and another one and another .. ..
    at the beggining I thought it will be good movie , you know - Johnny Depp ! . But is was raelly bad ..

    To sum up I am NOT recommend you all to watch this one ! he's raelly bad and very disappoint !

    What sold the movie was the screenplay and actors. The director did an excellent job at creating a visually intriguing movie; however the plot (as well as the songs) were severely lacking in substance. As I was watching the movie I kept feeling like I was watching a contrived musical, rather than a story.

    Sweeney Todd IS a musical, started on Broadway.

    I take it you're not a fan of the genre.

    Yeah, I suppose he's never heard of it.

    This movie is an adaptation of the mentioned musical, after all, done in famous Burton style (I just love the guy ).
    It may not be the best of his films IMHO, but it is very interesting, visually appealing and refreshingly 'different'. J. Depp & Helena Bonham Carter are great together as leads.
    Rickman, Spall and 'Borat' also did a good job.
    Give it a chance people ...
