DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Musical Thriller - This is a very violent, very bloody musical drama. The film is about 80% sung, so those averse to lots of singing are warned. This is a big showcase for stars Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter but Sacha Baron Cohen fans may be disappointed by his limited screen time.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 92 moviegoers:
TEENS:Both the males and the females thought this was a GREAT MOVIE! Nearly all of them rated it very high. Highly Recommended!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great reviews from both the males and the females. Only a small percentage didn't care much for this movie. Highly Recommended!
ADULTS:Over three-quarters of the males truly enjoyed "Sweeney Todd." Just a few actually disliked it. As for the females, slightly more than half loved this movie. They rated it either "Excellent" or "Fantastic." Unfortunately, the remaining reviews were a little on the low side with a few very low reviews. I can still recommend this movie for this age group but only to those who like dark dramas and Johnny Depp.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Arriving back in London after escaping from 15 years of false imprisonment in Australia, Benjamin Barker (Johnny Depp) vows to kill the evil Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman) and his nefarious henchman Beadle Bamford (Timothy Spall), who shipped him off to the other side of the world on a trumped-up charge in order to steal his wife, Lucy (Laura Michelle Kelly), and his baby daughter from him.

Adopting the guise of Sweeney Todd, Barker sets up shop in his old Barber Shop above the pie-making premises of Mrs. Nellie Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter), who tells him that his wife poisoned herself after Judge Turpin took advantage of her. But when a rival barber, the flamboyant Italian Pirelli (Sacha Baron Cohen), threatens to expose Sweeney's real identity, Todd kills him by cutting his throat. Not knowing what to do with the body, Mrs. Lovett sees this crisis as a potential solution to her ailing business — and suggests using human flesh as the filling for her pies.

Sweeney discovers that the Judge has turned his amorous affections towards Johanna (Jayne Wisener), Sweeney's now teenaged daughter, who has become Turpin's ward. Imprisoned in his house, Johanna is noticed one day by Anthony (Jamie Campbell Bower), a young sailor who rescued Sweeney from the sea. Hopelessly in love, Anthony vows to rescue Johanna and marry her himself.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Lovett's pies soon become the talk of London, and as business booms, she dreams of respectability and a life at the seaside with Sweeney as her husband and her young charge, Pirelli's former assistant Toby (Edward Sanders), alongside as her adopted son. But Sweeney has only revenge on his mind — to the detriment of anyone or anything else.
