    The musical puts two things at odds: My appreciation for Sondheim, and my intense dislike of the latter-day Tim Burton/Johnny Depp team. The result is that my expectations were met. Fell right in the middle. I neither loved it, nor hated it. I am resolutely ambivalent about it. I kept getting distracted by how all the actors worked together either in the Harry Potter films or Les Miserables (many of the plot elements are similar to the latter, you must agree), and I've never found either Depp or the equally Burton-ubiquitous Bonham-Carter engaging as singers, certainly not slurring their way through Cockney renditions of the songs (as correct as that might be). And while I'm always up for some Alan Rickman, I don't fancy him a great singing talent either. I works thanks to its outrageous story of love, slaughter, cannibalism and mistaken identities, a truly Shakespearean blend, but just okay for me. 3 years 11 months ago

    I get chills every time the ominous organ music begins over the opening credits. A tour-de-force from all involved making this one of my favourite films of 2007. A highly recommended bloody good time of a musical. 8 years 6 months ago

    I feeeeeeeeeeeeeel you Johannnnnna.

    This is dark and very very twisted. I mean this seriously is the definition of dark Tim Burton. Definitely encourage his fans to see this.

    Depp is magnificent as always.
