Sweeney Todd: A bloodiful film
I just saw the movie Sweeney Todd starring Johnny Depp directed by Tim Burton and this is my critic.
I believe there are three parts for this movie: “the return of the barber and the preparation of the vengeance” part, the “I kill all the guilty ones” part and the “I kill everyone ’cause in the end everyone is guilty” part.
The movie really starts cool, it takes time to put the set on and as soon as the vengeance begins we just are taken into a torrent of blood till the end. This movie is more a drama and a terrible one than a horror movie as I expected. Tim Burton really makes us laugh sometimes but the scene after we just grave.
Every picture in this movie, every take, every time it’s dark and beautiful, only the happy memories are yellow and the blood is red, so red you just know it’s fake but the context is so dramatic, you forget about it. The most beautiful picture is the very last one, so chaotic, so full of despair.
Actors are really incredible, they really sing well and they just act wonderfully. A master peace for our Tim Burton’s movie collection.
I rate it 4.5/5
