Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Words to describe Sweeney Todd: Dark, Gruesome, Bloody, Disturbing, and above all else, Art. Sweeney Todd was fantastic and was one of Tim Burton’s best, if not his best work. Like any other Burton movie you watch, it was dark, but it will have times with very vibrant bright colors, such as Christmas land in Nightmare Before Christmas, or the different colored houses in Edward Scissorhands. Every single actor in the movie was fantastic. The songs are entertaining and brilliant. Keep in mind that most of this movie is singing, if you really don’t like musicals, don’t see this movie. Some musicals are pretty good, some suck, this one is a masterpiece. The ending was fantastic and is opposite of what you would call a Hollywood ending. The movie was entertaining and beautiful from the opening credits (which were amazing) to the final bloody fade out.  Grade: A+
