Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street ★★★★

Critics have really hit this movie hard, although I don't think all of Tim Burton's movies are great this one is. My despise for musicals or cheesy singing goes deep, but this movie does it right along with the dark, gritty, morbid presentation. To be honest the musical parts enhanced this movie. Something that Burton really needed to return to, an unusual tale with an unconventional cast: Alan Rickman, Sacha Baron Cohen and Johnny Depp. They all play their parts well and right, this is one modern Burton movie done bloody right (pun intended).
