I don't know why, but I was never a huge fan of musicals. But after sitting through Sweeney Todd, I wouldn't have liked to watch this musical any other way. I'm a big fan of Tim Burton movies and Depp, Rickman, and Carter all do good jobs acting in this film. The setting, camera work, acting, story, and singing were all good in my opinion. The film is really violent and brutal. Definitely worthy of the "R" rating.
If you haven't seen this movie yet, and you think you could sit through a musical, go check this one out.
I give this a 9 out of 10.
