Movie Info

This razor-sharp retelling of the familiar Demon Barber legend is set in turn-of-the-century London, where barber Sweeney runs a cutting-edge business -- selling his murder victims' jewelry and contracting Mrs. Lovet to use her meat grinder to prepare tasty "meat pies." Meanwhile, American insurance investigator Ben tracks missing diamonds.

Audience Reviews for The Tale of Sweeney Todd

  • Jun 19, 2010
    Another great rendition of Sweeney Todd. It's great to see stories that can be retold and remain interesting. This throws out the idea of Sweeney as a victim, or his looking for revenge. This is much more in keeping with the original tail. A man that murders for greed. The best part about this film is that is doesn't try to justify the actions or make us sympathise with Todd. He's a terrifying and grotesque creature. Cold, calculating and very deceptive. The investigation narrative is just as interesting as Todd's deeds. I'd still put it behind Winstone's Sweeney Todd, due to the sheer power of that production, but it stands above and shits upon Burton's misfire.
