The horror and the blood is very epic and eerie.. the soundtrack is magnificent! if u listen to the words, u'll find it very suspenseful and scary ,... and (spoiler alert) there are people who u do not expect to die, that die.... everyones evil; every character has there evilness in this movie;EVERY character,

This is another great example of Tim Burton's work. Johnny Depp was really awesome. The rest of the actors that I can't name right were awesome to. I give this masterpiece of a film a really, really, REALLY strong 5 OUT OF 5!

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. Full Review

Something close to a masterpiece, a work of extreme -- I am tempted to say evil -- genius. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
It's not entirely surprising that Burton's Sweeney Todd feels heavier on style than on substance -- so much that the style almost subverts the story. Still, it's a gorgeous artifact and pretty enjoyable in all. Full Review

Mesmerizing and highly entertaining. Full Review
James Berardinelli
In the end, the real problem with the Demon Barber of Fleet Street is that he's not as bloody fun as he should be. Full Review
