Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have collaborated on many films but none quite like “Sweeney Todd.” This is the first musical in which Depp preforms his own songs (he lip synced in “Cry Baby”) and it’s full of many outstanding performances. Let’s take a slice.
After hard years in exile for a crime he didn’t commit, Benjamin Barker, now Sweeney Todd, returns to London to find his wife dead and his daughter in the hands of the evil Judge Turpin. In his anger, Sweeney goes on a murderous rampage on all London. With the help of Mrs. Lovett, he opens a barber shop in which he lures his victims with a charming smile before casually ending their lives with a flick of his razor across their necks. But not one man nor ten thousand men killed can satisfy Sweeney’s lust for vengeance on those who’ve caused his years of pain.
