Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)
Genre: Drama, Horror, Musical
Like Horror? Love Musicals? Then Sweeney Todd is for you 😛 . This is a great movie with stunning songs and a stunning narrative. Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter are both fantastic as Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett 🙂 . The overall look of the film works and helps create a dark atmosphere (which you need for a film about cannibalism 😛 ) . The songs may not be to everyone’s liking (unless you are a Sondheim fan like myself 😛 ) . My favourite songs in this movie are “Johanna” sung by Jamie Campbell Bower and “Not While I’m Around” by Ed Sanders. Everyone was perfect for the characters they were creating though I was not a big fan of Johanna (Jayne Wisener) as the character was a little weak. Understandable but not a favourite of mine. The blood may look a little off (like paint) but it works for the overall look of the film. Highly enjoyable and is my favourite Sweeney Todd film so far 😀 . Enjoy 🙂 !
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
