Johnny Depp in Sweeny Todd

Hi movie buffs,

So all of you are wondering what is all this hoopla about the new Johnny Depp film that has come out, and also whats with that funny name "Sweeny Todd". Well, Sweeny Todd was a real criminal who was a barber, who survived on killing his clients and his accomplice using the meat to make her pies ! Well, it does sound too morbid a tale to make up for a Broadway Musical. But, that is how the script writers conceived it and now the movie adaptation has hit the screens with our favorite actor who also proves to be the most versatile actor in recent times. Johnny Depp. n this adaptation of the classic musical, Sweeney Todd (Johnny Depp) is a barber who is sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit. After his release years later, Sweeney opens up a new shop and plots revenge against the judge (Alan Rickman) who sent him behind bars. But, before he does, he practices his knife skills on unsuspecting customers who have their necks cut along with their hair. The bodies of his victims then fall into the possession of Sweeney's girlfriend, Mrs. Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter), who carves them into delicious meat pies that become the talk of the town. The movie is rated "R" for its graphic violent content. So it might not go well with the chicken hearted ! So, that is Sweeny Todd in a nutshell. Hope you got the hang of it. The film promises a lot of drama and chilling moments, let us see what the Carribean Sparrow has to offer this time !!
