Critics: Johnny Depp is Bloody Good!

Johnny Depp keeps with the bloody theme at the New York premiere of the Tim Burton-directed Sweeney Todd at the Ziegfeld Theater on Monday in New York City.

The film, the silver-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical thriller, is scheduled for a nationwide release on December 21st.

Here are some of the early reviews from last night’s screening. Critics are bloody loving it!

“Assembled artistic combo assures the film will reap by far the biggest audience to see a pure Sondheim musical, although just how big depends on the upscale crowd’s tolerance for buckets of blood, and the degree to which the masses stay away due to the whiff of the highbrow. In all events, DreamWorks-Paramount and Warner Bros. have a classy and reasonably commercial delicacy on their hands.” — Variety

Depp is the movie’s heart and guts… The musical numbers ooze with Sondheim‘s audacious wit and scathing lyrics… Teaming with Depp, his long-time alter ego, Burton makes Sweeney a smoldering dark pit of fury and hate that consumes itself. With his sturdy acting and surprisingly good voice, Depp is a Sweeney Todd for the ages.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“This is the film to beat for Best Picture this year; the only “big” picture that is also a work of art. Academy voters should eat it up, pun intended.” — FOX News

# 8

His acting is just amazing. He jumps into a character like few artists that are around now. I love that he is and has always been a bit of an eccentric character. He’s not trying hard, he is being himself.

I love the dark and macabre look. He reminds me of the folk goth singer Voltaire in these photos.

he’s great i found some cool candids of johnny shopping with tim burton http://ultimate-johnny.org/

cant wait to see it

Yes for both Johnny and Sweeny Todd!!! Ever since I heard this was being made into a film I have been itching for it to be done so I can view it!! And the fact that Johnny, my all time favorite actor, is in it as Sweeny AND Tim Burton is directing it is just like all the cherries in the world on top of this ice cream cake! On top of all that yummy-ness it is a musical! Gah, musicals how I love thee, I have been waiting so long to see Sweeny Todd so I will def be there opening weekend to fall in love with a demon barber of fleet street!

And Johnny looks damn good, love the black and red! All the awesome, amazing talents are wearing it now a days! ;) at anyone who gets that….

Thanks for the Johnny post JJ!

Happy for the reviews!

Well, I surely can’t wait. Helena Bonham Carter wasn’t there! Well, she is due any day now.

wow, he looks like such a creep. i can’t stand him.

I love Johnny, but geez dude, what’s up with the homeless man shoes??? At least he keeps it interesting…

Has anyone seen this yet? Please describe. I need to prepare myself on how gross/bloody it is before heading to the theather. It looks like Sleepy Hollow.

ERIN @ 12/04/2007 at 11:44 am wow, he looks like such a creep. i can’t stand him.

Wow. I didn’t think anyone would hate Johnny Depp out of all of the crazies in lalaland. I don’t know why but I am almost sorry for you because to me, he’s always the coolest and sweetest man and it’s a shame you can’t see past his “weird” proclivities.

wow, he looks like such a creep. i can’t stand him.

I think that sentence shows your credibility. You can’t stand him because he ‘looks’ like a creep? Have you ever actually sat down and watched one of his movies before you say such a thing? No ‘Pirates’, doesn’t count.

#22, reviews from Variety and Hollywood Reporter were already released and they seemed to love it. They rave both Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. One says that they couldn’t have had a more perfect director for the film. One says the adaptation is satisfying…etc… In a nutshell, I can’t wait!
